What is with the new forum lay out?

Recommended Posts

What is with the new forum lay out? It only has one or two posts showing and then a bunch of links to other postings instead of posts them selves. Is everyone having this problem or am I just the lucky one to have had my settings get randomly switched?

 

Oh and that last part was sarcasm by the way. I hate the new lay out and find it difficult to navigate properly.

If enough people want it back, we'd certainly talk it over.

This is the only forum that I frequent that even has rules about how long you have to edit a post and there has never been a problem with people abusing the function either.

 

I've had a chat to the veterans, and they explained that we had a period where abuse of the editing function to conduct flame wars got so bad that on one occasion Obs considered shutting the whole forum down. So, I guess in answer to your question, we have it because our members are so delightfully special. :ermm:

Thing is things are good now, but what's good one day might not necessarily be good the next, so it's better to be safe than sorry and keep the current time limit rule on editing posts I reckon. And yes, flame wars do occur here, but from what I've seen, the mods are quick to jump in and resolve things aka lockdown.

New layout?

From memory that never happened on the BIS boards, nor did it happen when these boards were first created and I'm assuming it doesn't happen now - do we even have flame wars here? So is there any chance of repealing it now things are settled?

 

Oh, it happened. I was here and it was glorious.

Ah, sure. I meant it didn't happen in 04 when these boards were created. Quite frankly I'm amused it happened at all. It would either have to be a bunch of KoTOR nerds arguing over who was a better Jedi, or an insufficient moderator population - and even then, it's uncharacteristic of a board like this. Unless it was something akin to what used to happen in YoP or WWOT. Haha!

When they make the film of these boards Feng gets played by Nick Cage.

No, it happened when there weren't any new games or press releases, and the crewmates started getting leery-eyed and stir-crazy. It happens. And like Feng said, it was glorious. The edit function is a mere corollary of the great battle.

Edit: Damn, I thought this was the window with "What are you playing now" opened, sorry...
