So, nobody reads your posts...
I also agree that the general and serious are better if they were split. A lot of the serious discussion threads are sensitive in nature. Sadly I remember the memorial post for Ryan Garside girlfriend. It would be a shame if it was next to post that were of the tasteless kind and we all know that few of the threads in general have been of that kind. I have always viewed both forums completely seperate.
I would quite like the motors in a differant section too, all i see is motors motors motors I never knew motors were so popular because i never went to the motors forum - because im not interested in motors
See where I am going with this ?
Anyway, apart from that i have no complaints (except wondering where programming questions go) - still would like multi-filter option and having the forum remember what filters you like, though.
that would be uh-mazing
Meh, I liked it the old way...
Great, but constructive criticism may be more helpful
Of all the tags, there are two which continue to annoy me, the Motors one, because to me it looks like a Movie reel, is located right next to other entertainment tags and I keep clicking expecting movie threads and end up reading about stuck keys in petrol caps, and the politics tag which seems to be really hard to read for some reason.
We will be updating and offering alternative tags in the near future.
I will also be investigating a way for people to save their fav tag selection in forums.
I like the new layout..... new is good
Okay, not sure whether anyone will see this, but I've got a little further with the signature size bug. If I remove the RIGHT tags in my current sig, the SIZE="1" tags work, but if I leave the RIGHT tags in, then only the left justified text gets sized properly.
edit: Right, I've put the SIZE="1" tag after the RIGHT tag, and that seems to have done the trick!
The site is working very good! well done guys! I love it
Didn't you start a thread over how much you disliked it?
no, it was his life he hated, not the forum.
Any news on separating GD from SD as two separate forums?
It's staying as it is for the time being.
I can list all of the main forum segments on one page (after scrolling down a bit)
One click gets me into most of my favorite sections (Development, Open Source, Windows, Networking, etc.)
Grouping sections draws attention to some posts that may be difficult to place, so if I post about Open Source Windows Software in "Open Source", the people looking for Windows will still see my post.
It takes 2 clicks to display only development or only open source, etc.
More people are complaining.
The cons aren't big, and can be solved by:
Bookmarking the filters I prefer
keep using the forum until it feels right.
So overall I would say "yes", this is a definite improvement that I hated the first time I saw it, then loved it after I started thinking. Thinking is the key here... I can't be as lazy as before, but I'm sure I'll get over it and will appreciate the ability to add more tags quicker than adding more sub-forums.
You don't say.
After using it for a little while, I still really want the old forums back.
Maybe in a year or so I might get used to the pictographs, but I don't really like the idea.
I don't mind you playing with the crayons though. In fact I implore you to play all that you like.
Some people have been complaining that the "general" section seems dead. This isn't because it is dead, it's because the old tags from GD were given this tag, and have died due to old age. Most of the new threads that would normally go in GD have been given more specific tags.
@foo = bar.net is meant to mean "programming question" ?!
As for filtering choices it doesnt sound too difficult surely... make an array out of the choices with check boxes next to then stick a for loop in the info gathering section of code, though im no expert on vbulletin and from what I have seen the coding is somewhat not easy to follow.
Separate names with a comma.
