Ok here's a new thread to offer suggestions directly to Richard (xfalcons new owner/admin)
Please contribute as you see fit.

A couple things I've always felt were lost or lacking with the new format were the fact we have 2 buttons next to each other in the banner that directs to 'new content'...... whats new and view new content.
Can i suggest that the 'view new content' tab be changed to 'view newly replied topics' or something to that effect as to get to the list of topic that you personaly have replied to and are watching you have to go to a drop down menu under the username. One extra click i know but is annoyed me since day one. And next is there is no 'top of page' link at the bottom of each page. Very handy if you have 100 replies to scroll thru to get back to the banner again.
And just various features of the mobile format suck, lots of misdirection going on with the messanger tab and i cant seem to find an easy way to edit a post after its been posted either.
The search function is an abismal joke... i always shouted praise for the search tab on the old format, however the new one of late is shocking, cant find thread titles even if u give it the exact name word for word and the name of the author.

Thanks for looking into these issues.
Clint.

Agree with Noobus! On ozdat we have a button called ''view your posts'' shows you topics you have replied to very handy for quick replies.

Also agree search button is very unhelpfull currently.

Yep its the new rep system, you just click the green + on the right of thr post. It will show how many people gave it a "1 up" but i don't think it can say who.
Thats another issue aswell, there is no notification if someone gives you rep for a post, and that system doesn't exist in the mobile version... but then again it is mobile for a reason lol

When reading through a thread that has like 20 odd pages it's a pain as you cannot select the page you wish to get to... Have to go to like page 3then 6 then 9 ect ect...

Up the top, click on your username and click on "my content" It will show any thread you have been a part of.

Im just saying we have 2 buttons in the banner that do the same thing, why not make one of them link to subscribed threads instead.

Id like to see the rep system back under a users avatar. it was a bit of fun and the current system makes rep pointless.

One thing i find really irritating is the uploading of photos. Whether it be your avatar or just general thread pictures. Not everyone is technologically capable to know about photobucket and have applications to resize images. Just what i think..
And I will agree 100% on the search bar issue!
Oh and maybe a better layout for private messages..

Agreed!! This has annoyed me plenty, multiple times!

Uploading to photobucket should resize the images to suitable size automatically :)

Doesn't work on iPads or mobile devices... And on the iPhone it just sits at one page and won't respond!!!

Thanks for these. My first fix will be in regard to the "What's New" / "View New Content" weirdness.

Anybody have interest in going back to the old software suite (vBulletin)? I never understand why previous management switched...

Some say we are extreme and obsessed but we know the truth, and the truth is, they are mediocre and lack passion.

Anybody not in favor? Maybe we roll back time. I want to stop talking and drown my sorrows in wrenching on things.
