I don't like them either, it's missing features of the old forum. So, why would I like something that's "crippled" or missing features? Kind of reminds me of EVE as a whole actually when they release new patches.

I think the old forums look far better.

1> that graphic in the background is too much and a step in wrong direction. It feels like i'm loading a 100mb bitmap. I shouldn't be worried about graphics issues when loading message forums.

2> The column widths are much smaller than the current, making it hard to read.


I do intend do give credit where credit is due and mean no disrespect but what's wrong with the current layout?

You're making a lot of changes to things that are working fine in my opinion. Are you alienating your players?


They give you the ability to hide posts from people you don't like. I don't care what else they have, that feature alone makes them pure win.

I can't log on with my user name and password for some reason. So already huge fail, and I haven't even used it yet.

Also, the legibility of the new forums is still **** compared to the current forums. Specifically, use an easier to read typeface.

I might be dense, but why are we supposed to "upgrade" to new forums that hurt the eyes and lack the features I use in these forums every single day?

How many weeks were they down for? And they couldn't address any of the visual design issues in that time? Cripes.

The current left-hand menu is missing, and since it's actually pretty important, hrrrrr bring it back.

I'll be using custom CSS for the pages, they're really annoying to read as it stands. There's also _WAAAAY_ too many bulky scripts being used - the pages are much more responsive and nice on your average connection with js disabled. We could also do with CAOD back on the public list, a bit silly to remove it these days, nothing much worth logging in for. Removing the huge 'you need js enabled' message from the page would also be a good thing.

At least we have eve-search... for now... :(

The new forums add a half-arsed block feature, which is sort of good.

In exchange we get something which is hard to read, badly formatted which doesn't even update threads in the index properly so the latest posts are not always counted or acknowledged so you don't know when people have actually replied to a thread you are interested in.

Sounds like it is the same forums as the old new ones.

I just try to get them locked, deleted or moved because you are such a terrible poster and usually moderation is warranted. I'm pleased to see it bothers you.

Fortunately, the majority of my posts are warranted. It does make me laugh though.

That double lock is a badge of honour LaughingCool

Don't like 'em. To be honest I haven't used them a lot, but my first thoughts are as follows: They're too narrow. There's too much empty space everywhere. A lot of the text is very small. I personally find the layout messy: Some stuff in that corner, a little in this, and hey - let's place a couple of tabs here... And did I mention they're narrow? What is this, 2002? Rolling Eyes

^^ Quickly updated firefox stylish plugin tweak for those who prefer old colorset. Did not have time to fix the width issue yet, so feel free to contribute and post the settings somewhere if you got inspiration.

Have fun.

The huge background image is just stupid, but follows CCP policy of adding lag to their products.

I always browse forums with IMAGES OFF, faster. saves monthly quota too.

Pfft!

People always whine about how good EvE was in 2003. Now that CCP listened to the playerbase and downgraded to 2002 they STILL whine!

im hoping the 'new' forums break within 1 day again so they will get pulled down and we can use the fucntioning 'old' forums again.

new ones are a major step back in imho.

when they go live my eve forum reading days will be over, not wasting my time on something that bad, unless i need a gtc that is

As a conveyor of information that is organized and simple to read quickly, the new forums are substantially inferior to the present forums.

I will not use anywhere near as much a system that makes it more difficult to use. We want progression, not regression.
