    New horrendous forum

    by bodomdragon » Thu Aug 30, 2018 12:22 am

    Glad too see the priorities are clear, a new forum design is EXACTLY what we needed.

    Important question, I can't really find the "jump to last read" button that we had before, and that I find ESSENTIAL. Is it seriously gone?

    In fact, I haven't found a way to "jump to last read" OR "jump to last post."
    I can't really envision a less user-friendly design for a forum.
    "Welcome back, sailor! Go ahead and load up the last page of each thread because you'll have to scroll through it to find any new posts." :roll:

    When you quote someone, you don’t see the names of who you quoted anymore, very confusing.
    At least I can now quote Andy with impunity...

    Also, when composing messages or reading private messages, URLs show up as white text over a white background.

    It is actually not that bad. A few minor problems, some of which are easily corrected. For the most part it is a very nice design refresh and looks and feels a lot more modern. I'm pretty sure that the rest of the website will follow, well... soon together with booking information and line-up.

    We are getting closer the forum is just one step.

    I know this as an IT project manager, every time you do an update that changes the UI users complain about it. People don't like change. ;)

    Godflesh is right let's gather all the input we have about those minor problems here. But let's not call it a total disaster. It really is not.

    The very least that I need to make this forum at least functional is the jump to last read feature. The obvious way to do it would be enabling a link in the red dot that appears in the thread when there are unread messages, pretty much like it used to work.

    I don't want to be too pessimistic or catastrofic here, but this feature is an absolute must to make this forum usable, and without it i'll most likely disappear from here or just read random messages.

    Gods this is ugly. Also, maybe I just need to clear my cache, but the mobile version still doesn't work. I had to view the desktop version of the site to see how bad it is.

    And it's bad.

    EDIT: Here we go. The mobile version seems slightly better than the desktop.

    :shock: They said I was going to do voluntary work. Just for the good of humanity.

    I have four issues with the re-design:
    - Jump to last read post
    - Display name in quotes
    - White color when composing messages
    - Loading time for certain threads as it seems to load all the content (including pics) before displaying anything. Before there was a progressive loading

    I actually like the new UI although it takes some getting used to. But that is normal for such changes.

    Agree! Now the forum gives me the same bad sensations as my bathroom mirror. I had that mirror! It is evil! I'm positively sure that I am much more handsome then any photograph or mirror image of myself. :lol:

    Let's not joke about #MeToo please.

    Also, I had NO idea what you were talking about until I logged on to my work computer. Mobile has the profile pictures in teeny tiny print above the post. Also, it does look quite nice on desktop, though the inky black void around all the posts is a bit bleak.

    I think I agree with all of Amalu's complaints, but also adding that the smilies on the sidebar when you're making a post is horrific. Why do I need to scroll down so much to submit?

    EDIT: oh, also I have to scroll up to get to the 70000 TONS OF METAL Home page button? WHY?

    Agree with all the complaints. Another annoying thing I did see listed yet is just the fact everything is so big and bloated.

    The title of a thread... the most important piece of data is truncated after just a handful of characters. Sooo much real estate and yet I see 20 characters .....

    Good times visiting the threads like "The Official Mega..." The Official Threa..." "The Unofficial Thre.."

    I have my preferences set to post most recent on top, so that's fine when I'm logged in. Sometimes I just like to hop on without logging in and there used to be a button to jump to the most recent post for a topic. Is that gone now? I can't seem to find it. I would like that back.

    Also an IT Manager/Professional. Rule of life in IT: everyone always hates change, no matter what it is or how much good is involved.

    This is clearly not just an upgrade, but an entire new engine. I have no idea how far behind our old forum was, but my guess would be years. This seems vastly superior to me. I wonder if we are due for a new website... that was my prediction :)

    These kind of forums have countless styles to choose from and hundreds of extensions. This is probably just the newest/compatible style to the one the old forum was. Probably just needs a number of Admin settings specified and maybe extensions added to make it look damn close to the old one. But the question is, does the IT team care about these little differences? Most likely no, haha.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the website was updated as a whole as well. The new logo is not yet on the page. I would guess that one comes with the go live of the new page.

    And yeah every change we do as IT professionals always comes with a lot of mumbling about how the old was better.

    I agree with you, the new forum engine is far better and surely offers a lot more options, especially on the admin side.

    Let's hope that this new forum engine has administrative settings to enable such basic, critical features as "jump to last post" or "go to first new post in a thread" or "include person's name when quoted."

    Y'all can try to sugarcoat this all you'd like. Yes, clearly, they changed this over to be more compatible with mobile devices. But, as currently configured, their choice of forum engine STINKS. :evil:
