ROLL IT BACK

    As the title says, and as a lot of posters are starting to say, roll it back.

    we have no interest in this new site. It’s horrible. It’s so difficult to navigate, everything is so difficult. Apart from navigating, the worst for me is the new white look, the no “my threads” option, and the activity section…..I mean come on, this isn’t Facebook, I don’t give 2 shjtes if somebody changes their profile picture or has been promoted to level 1B. What a waste.

    can you please swallow your pride and bring back the old format. Make it a little sexier if you wish, but only a little.

    I see forums seem to have only one page of threads ?

    Is there a way to see older threads or do I need to google them in the domain boards.ie to get them ?


    And what about user post history ?

    To see what was "My Threads", just click on your profile picture in the top right and go to bookmarks if you are on desktop, or on the mobile site click on your picture and then click on the star. It's two clicks, if you were anywhere other than the old homepage you'd have to do two clicks as well, one to get to the homepage, and then one on the My Threads tab.

    I've no idea about the complexity of rolling it back, so I'm not saying do that, but I will say that this is now a terrible site. It's pretty slow for me, very hard to see whats going on, and really seems to be all downside as I've yet to see one user focused improvement.

    If this were the finished version, and I'm sure it's not, then it would be game over.

    Mad that number 5 is the most likely of those options!

    Finding this new version hard to navigate. Also my old threads no longer show their attached images. I genuinely think, for the effort, the outages and now the result, the project has not been worth it. The old vBulletin system just worked.

    It’s not just a few features that are an issue, it’s a total ball of shite. My go to forums I can find nothing. Can’t read or browse easily. Categories are a mess with repeats etc.

    Two other points,

    If you post on a new thread you are not automatically following the thread, you must click on the star (follow?) to actually follow the thread.

    Can't see who has thanked posts or even if you have thanked it.

    Much preferred the previous ways.

    "No categories were found." on mobile, an error on desktop. What am I missing?
