    Awful site, awful experience, if it stays like this i'm out, not that the powers that be will give 2 shites

    to me there are only 2 core objective for a site like this .

    1 is to have an easy way to find sections to create threads in or to find existing ones

    2 is to allow discussion in those threads. people need to come back to threads to continue the discussion

    right now both of them are a disaster.

    Actually had a dream last night that they rolled it back and it was working again. It’s the end for this site, what a shame.

    be honest Boards, if your intention was to improve, have you achieved that?

    Allowing for getting used to the new layout, at best it's the same, at worst it's poor IMO

    That's posts/threads though, not the forums themselves

    It's a brave new boards and I don't like it too much effort involved finding topics and users and threads even. I have used boards for my hobbies medical/disability issues and for the sheer fun but this this is torture.

    How do you get to your statistics? This is how I checked if someone had quoted my so I could respond etc. Cant find it on this new site. Yeah not liking it so far.

    Roll back is never going to happen.

    But the touch site is a, disaster. I've hardly posted as I keep having to search for my regular fora.

    All it needs is dropdowns of the top menus and the replacement of the my followed forums dropdown, at least then it will be usable, while you fix less big issues, and I am talking Desktop, the mobile version is simply unusable as it stands.

    Im sure theres plenty of little gremlins etc in the system and they will be ironed out over the coming days.

    How do I search within a 100 page thread for a specific piece of text (as in the old Search Thread function)?

  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 3,721 Mod ✭✭✭✭ HildaOgdenx

    I really miss the 'Most Thanked'. It often meant I ended up reading a thread or being on a forum that I would otherwise never have read.

    This new set up is very clunky, I don't find it user friendly.

    At the moment, I bookmark threads I'm interested in. Otherwise I feel as if I would struggle to find them again.

    +1 on links opening in a new tab? Very painful the way it is now.

    Plus how can you partially quote from a previous post???

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,313 ✭✭✭ iLikeWaffles

    It's absolutely deplorable trying to emotionally and financially blackmail into a decision. They are not going to give in to this ridiculous and spoilt little child like demand. It is already a big improvement on the old site and will be fixed to be more in line with the old site. Yes there are issues, how about showing some support for the small team of people that manage the site so they can do the work to get the site back to the level of usability it was before. If anything what is and has been killing boards for a long time now is the shear amount negativity and whining from its users in many forums.

    Anyone got an idea where the different Skins/looks were, I thought I had a widescreen option rather than this narrow offset version I'm looking at now.

  • Registered Users Posts: 937 ✭✭✭ Glaceon

    I think the biggest issue for me isn’t even the new UI, it’s the almost complete silence from the managers and admins in reaction to some genuine issues raised by users.

    It reminds me of the 2FM changes a few years back. They didn’t care that they alienated the existing listeners because they were chasing new, younger (and hopefully more profitable) listeners.

    Home page seems to have reverted to old type(on chrome) but then the new format when i enter a thread..
