I'm one of those users every since i got a new laptop. I hate to admit it but I rarely read new posts that I havent posted in since its such a pain in the ass to scroll back and forth over and over again. If I had a mouse, it wouldn't be as big of an issue. But if that could get fixed, that'd be awesome!

I never really had a problem with the scrolling, but maybe that's cuz I have a mouse for my laptop.

I almost never get the sideways scrolling problem. And by almost never, I mean I have seen it twice in two years. Weird. scratch

Ive only seen it while using IE. A browser that imo, has fallen pretty far into the useless pile anymore.

Ive never been able to figure out how what was once the leader of browsers, turned into the most useless browser incapable of the most basic things.

yeah


And its going to be a little ugly till everything is worked out so everyone please be patient.
You may notice odd buttons. The theme change a few times as even now I cant say there is one OMG THIS is the one.... yet, and a lot of the options stand out as possibles.
So its been a tough decision.

The other goal in this is to get boards neatened up and moved about to make browsing a little easier.
So any feedback there will help some too.

As you can see most all the clan recruitment threads have been dumped into The Lounge.
A couple of those clans in there will probably be set up with forums of their own like the others and the rest will sit underneath as you see all the threads now.
Should their activity increase here after that, then they will be given forums too.

We (admins) are kind of discussing now what should go. What should stay. Where what should go where etc.
So like i said....feedback is good.

Is there anyway to have all of the boards visible on the main page? I've always hated the fact I have to go digging for a thread. A PS3-related thread is two levels down and it gets really tiring after a while having to go [Consoles] > [Sony] to see anything. There are a couple of other boards like that. I realize it's probably for condensing and organizing purposes, but it still bugs me a lot.

You mean ditch the sub forums and extend the index?

or just dump everything in one Category?

You have to make a Category before you can make the boards if I remember correctly, right?

So maybe on the main page you have the Category [Gaming Headquarters] so instead of having [Consoles and PC Chat] viewable on the first page you instead have [Sony], [XBox Discussion], etc viewable underneath [Gaming Headquarters]. The thing with doing that is then you have threads that have no where to go because people have made them in the [Console and PC] chat because it was multiplatform or a gaming event and could easily fit in multiple boards. I'm not sure what you'd do with those threads though, either moving them to existing boards or making entirely new boards for them.

As a simpler example, moving the [Music], [Television and Movies] and [Books, magazines, and comics] boards up so they're under [Random Chat] in the [Entertainment] Category would be nice. I hardly ever look at those boards because I just find it a pain to bother looking at them.

Maybe this would help: I don't mind scrolling as much as clicking. Fewer clicks is better, IMO.

If you were to go down a road like that, maybe having a board for archived threads would be fine, such as for past contests/events or threads that people don't pay attention to anymore or OPs that don't want to supervise their threads anymore. Maybe have one thread stickied in the [Things You Should Know] where people can request their threads moving in or out of the archived sections.

Thats how it used to be. At the time people said it made the Index look too cluttered.
Thats why they were sub forumed in the first place.

If it seems the masses prefer that old way, we can go back.

Hey, just thought I would check in with an honest view on the first impressions the forums give to me. First of all, when I come to the home page, it takes me a while to figure out how to even get to the forums let alone other parts of the site.

There is just too much going on for me. There is text and icons everywhere, including on the forum section which can be rather off putting at times. Personally, I have tried to get into the forums a few times but struggled to find everything!

Obviously you need to please the regulars and if more people love the way things look then they should stay the way they are, I just thought I would chip in with how I personally find things.

Don't know much about the forums and what you can do with them but can you provide different themes for people to choose from? Or does it need to be one theme for everyone?

Also one other thins which is slightly off putting, it may just be me though, is when I go to each section there is so many different topics on the one page I don't know where to start! This may change if I spent a little more time around the forums, which I will try to but just thought I would point it out.

There is a way to provide personal themes, but OM code does it look nasty.
I sat and read the tuts a billion times and its one of those things I'd rather leave be than try and mess up.
Unfortunately, no, there is no default user pick theme option.
If I knew of anyone who was rather knowledgeable in coding templets, the possibilities are much bigger all around in general.

So to be a bit more specific Sab, scrolling announcements you feel are an eye sore too?

And HI!!!!!
Hows life been treating ya?


Oh, and less threads per page is an easy fix

I was meaning the home page that you first get to if your not logged in! There is no specific button which says forums, so it took me a while to find the actual boards!

As far as the forums themselves its probably more just personal taste to be honest, I am not sure exactly it is but its something to do with the design which takes me longer to find things!


I'm good thanks! Heard about a relaunch of a certain forum for an Insomniac Game which may be relaunching sometime soon, so thought I might get back into the old communities just in case... you know .... it actually turns out to be good!

How are things around here anyway? Community still going well?! What do you think of the apparent relaunch of MyRes? Is it too much to hope for something which brings everyone back to the wasteland that the 2nd version became!

I think anywhere Sony is involved, the potential for disappointment is huge.


As everyone has sat anticipating the launch and the date it was supposed to came and went, we are are already hearing....its out of our hands and in Sonys.


Thats going to be the answer for everything.

I hear it will be an smf format which is good, and that alone may get some of the main crew back. But Sony doesnt care about forums, as the forums are not what brings them the money. And any issues and problems the forum has....will be left un dealt with, just as they were at 2.0
So while I am optimistic that MyRes can resurrect itself, (only because I have always loved that community) I highly doubt things will ever be like they were.
The community has changed as the games have.
And even R3 is looking to be a game most of the "old timers" will hate just as much as they did R2. And if they are not playing the game, I dont see them going to talk about it.


Only time will tell.

Damn. Was hoping Sony were going to keep their noes out of things this time... I don't have a PS3 anymore but would still go back to the MyRes forums if they were in a decent state!

We'll just keep the old way then.

Sheesh guys.


There was more behind it all than a change in looks.
I already had heard page stretch was gone etc.

If you really like this better we'll keep it.
