The forums have had an update!

[ Edited ]
154 Replies 707 Views edited 04-04-2012

Hello Community!

 

As some of you may have already noticed, the forums have had a redesign at thread level.  There are several new features for you to try out...

 

Print Button

 

You now have the ability to click the 'Printer' button which will launch a printer friendly version of the forums, ideal for those trophy guides or technical support walkthroughs.

 

Community Team Highlighted

 

Posts from members of the community team are now surrounded by a blue border making them easier to distinguish.

 

Hover Over functionality on Avatars/ID

 

Hovering your mouse over a users avatar/ID on the forums will bring up an information box about that user with details about their last posts, post count, rank, signature and post count.

 

Facebook/Twitter social media buttons

 

You now have the option to share posts from the forums on either Facebook or Twitter by simply clicking the relevant button at the bottom of each post.

 

A New Solution section on the right-hand side

 

To better highlight technical solutions

 

 

Any feedback you have regarding the changes, pop it in this thread!

 

Many thanks,

 

Vissy.

Just stretch it back and all will be fine.

i like this idea. i actually like most of the changes as you've said, the only thing is the squishiness of it, i really dont know how this passed as acceptable tbh...

Or put the announcements at the top. Sure there'd be a tiny bit more scrolling but we'd get our width back and be able to breathe again so to speak.

There's a similarity to the US forums with the boxes on the right hand side.

 

This isn't a good thing.

Can i just ask why the posts are now half as long in width? there doesn't seem to be any space issues and now posts just look odd and like they've been minimised,

Hopefully they don't completely overhaul the forums to become the navigational horror of the US forums.

Holy macerena, where's my post count gone?!??!!? I feel almost like I've lost a leg (my third one).

This forum is like a communist country now, everybody is the same, no identity.

I feel naked.

 

I should probably put some clothes on.

It's really squashed. :|

 

The reply page is the same size though.

Looking at it again, the design suffers a lot of flaws, space isn't being used in an effective manner, there are too many boxes within each other when reading posts too. It seems like a bid to make people take notice of the content on the right sidebar. I can see this just annoying people though. If you widen the reading area a little, it would be a HUGE improvement

i've never looked thinner!

bit too squashed for me tbh, and far too much empty space on the right side. other than that the other tweaks are fine with me.

 

edit: hover function doesn't work in IE, but someone else has written about that.

If you want to put links on the right hand side, how about making them dynamic so that they pop out when you hover over them? Then you can give us proper width threads again...

I realise a lot of meetings, planning and other stuff probably go into these changes but I'm rather amazed someone didn't say

 

'Nah, it'll look far too squashed up if we do that''

 

at any point during those stages.
