Thanks everyone - please do keep the feedback coming. It has been awhile since we upgraded the fora infrastructure. for the last year Admin has been busy with lots else, but the Bot issue finally pushed toward this recent upgrade. I cannot guarantee 'hopes' will be implemented, but broken or non-functioning aspects will be dealt with asap based on feedback!

Not something broken, just an aesthetic change I would like to see:

Could the *edited post* be a liitle less orange? Or not so big?

Can everyone see the new avatar then? Ironic that I'm not an Ubi fanboi on the PC, but I do play Ubi games via console!

This is new and.. interesting. I guess it takes a few days to get used to.

It's a little funny with all these buttons I get so distracted by wanting to push them all that it's very hard to focus on anything else.. What was I saying, erm.. Well, okay, there aren't really that many buttons, but they are so colourful and fresh that my optic nerve blur out anything in the background..

Hi everyone,

Today we upgraded our forums which now include a lot of features you have come to know and love on other, more modern boards.


Hey yourself.

I thought the old one was pretty modern itself, but maybe I am just getting old.

I notice that there is a view changer on top.. Regular view, basic view, I wonder would it be possible to add an Old view? Insert smilie here, but they seem to work atm or maybe it's just the quick reply.. no it's the same with More reply options.. Try different browser, not IE8 perhaps, hm, maybe later.

why add so much information to the left column? Gender, Interests etc. would it be too much to ask to remove everything except the avatar, title and location?

and where do I disable signatures...

On the upper left click on the symbol for "basic view"

holy crap, that's too basic, I can't be expected to pay attention to people's names. I usually identify posters by avatars ;)

I'm getting a lot of 'likes' from what are clearly spam accounts.

I liked the old ones, they were simple.

Now I can't just go around hitting the same button for every post I want to respond to, and there's the giant green "LIKE THIS" button, and it just feels like there's a lot of unnecessary schlock on here.

Who here keeps an actual blog that we might actually use the "Blog This!" button?

Also, the quote blocks and buttons seem to take up a LOT more room than previously, but that might just be the color scheme slapping me in the face.

Welcome to "modern", where ego-boosting functions and blogs take precedent over functionality and slickness.

I can't see anything from the old boards I miss now though, so...

By the way, I don't know if this has been pointed out yet. But isn't the new forum similiar to Bethesda's? Is Obsidian using the same forum software?
