I decided to list everything that is crappy about the new forums, so feel free to add your reasons.
(PS. I invite any mods to try and defend themselves against these reasons rather than deleting this thread and trying to push their problems under the carpet)
Solved! Go to Solution.
I actulay agree with every point, this site is no longer a community. It feels like a REALLY badly designed social network site. When you say the warhawk board is dead, apply that to all boards. When on lithium the board moved really fast and were very populated. Now they are slow and even the cod board is a shell of what it used to be.
It also feels like a dictatorship, any negative comments are deleted...watch out TC.
Hi Seany - 2K8
That certainly is a detailed list!! I actually found it pretty helpful as we are always looking for ways to make this new platform better and there are some points you've brought up that I can bring to the table.
People have reported on very similar issues (for example, the editing, the language filter, the layout....). We (the Mods) have already reported on these and we're looking into ways we can resolve them.
There are, however, a few things on your list I can shed some light on
Custom Avatars are coming - within the next few weeks. And the load times are getting better with each update we do.
PMs are still here! Just click on "your stuff" on the top and you should be able to see them.
To find polls - click on "Browse" and polls is featured as an option.
E-mail alerts can be switched off - there was an issue with them magically switching themselves on again, but it has been resolved. If you're still recieving them even after you've switched them off - lemme know and I can report the bug and get it resolved.
As for the navigation - have you tried using the "your view" function? You can customise it any way you like...even bookmark the spaces you frequently visit.
Hope that helps,
Any more issues/problems lemme know. I'm happy to help.
ps - i hope i didn't come across as cocky it wasn't my intention - I am really just trying to help.
Where's the "Your View" function? Does it allow me to customize the resolution of the forums? I find it irritating that, even at the state of technology that we're in, the many site redesigns I've had to go through appears designed for the lowest common denominator, cheap/poor users who haven't had a computer upgrade in over a decade; wikia was the latest site to commit this folly, in my experience. I didn't approve of being beat over the head with a space-inefficient layout.
I'm on 1920x1080 resolution and I hate jumping through hoops so that I'm not having to stare at content only taking up half the horizontal space. Sony is desires to be at the forefront of technology, so why can't the official website of one of its subsidiaries easily adjust itself to a proper high-definition resolution?
