Even multi-quoting looks messy Smiley Sad

 

Can you guys please put quotes in a bubble or box perhaps?

Yes that is why the shields need to be bigger so people can know who the MVP's are and such

hmm... can't tell the difference between a mod, cm, dev or an mvp when looking through the forums. new users may get us all confused. that needs to be changed.


Isn't the "PlayStation MVP"  below your name a good indication?

 

mvp

 

Edit: Oh I see what you're talking about. In the forum list. Yeah, that's werid that they removed the colors.

Here are my thoughts -- criticism only, but anything I don't mention can be considered good:

 

 

  • Gap at the top "Playstation Forums" - Wayyyy too big, should only appear on the main front page and then either be gone completely or a much smaller version or something. I shouldn't have to see that and scroll past it every page I navigate through, whether nested deeply in a thread or on a reply page.

 

  • Dark theme - Not only do we want a dark theme, but IMO it should be the default theme and allow people to use the white theme as an option. Quite simply, the white theme is overdone the past few years... the darker one set PS Forums apart and this white one just looks like they're trying to fit in and create a "Disqus/Comments reply section/old school forum" hybrid. Furthermore, everyone's sigs looked a lot better on the black background.

 

  • OP positioning/size/etc - This is probably the most annoying bit. You basically have a blog format for the OP and then forum formatting for everyone else. Not only is it weird, does not flow, but it creates a sort of "god complex" for the OP. I forsee people starting new threads instead of replying to existing ones, just to have their post show up in this special format.

  • Shield size is too small - Fairly straightforward... it's tiny and I can't see the difference between any of them.

 

  • Spell check - I get that there is a spell check button at the top, but why does my browser's own spell check not work within the reply box?

Yeah, we actually did this a month or so ago. We got feedback that no one was using tags, so we decided to remove them, integrate Labels, and that way we can increase the organization on PS General. It's been working pretty well imo, but definitely use the Labels if you haven't already =) 


can some boards can use Labels? such as PS Home, Uncharted, GT, LBP, etc?

The shields look weird on the replies with long usernames, like Da Almighty's in the first reply to this thread.


 

Yes, it does.

 

Please fix it. I don't want to be THIS kind of special little snowflake.


Should be fixed now

(that is pretty weird for me. but glad someone mention "blog format")

  • Shield size is too small - Fairly straightforward... it's tiny and I can't see the difference between any of them. (might be a glitch)

 

  • Spell check - I get that there is a spell check button at the top, but why does my browser's own spell check not work within the reply box? (That thing happends forever before the change) (edit: however you can still use spell check by clicking HTML while posting/edition a Message)
