*Not Important* However, this new forum layout?

What does everyone think of the new forum layout? 

 

  • Dead-Sync (Support MVP)

    I think it's hard to compare now. Currently, it's no secret that it isn't as good. However, that's to be expected considering it is a brand new platform. I actually am quite excited that they moved away to something newer that could one day offer more features than we had before. If Sony didn't care, they would have left the same old platform until the end of time. To do a big restructure like this shows some sort of investment.

     

    Things will get better. On Day 1 it was pretty silly...we still have a long way to go, but they already added in Stickies today it seems, as well as the standard post pumping topic behavior. So it will get there.

     

    EDIT: Also worth mentioning that with the old platform, Sony did not have direct ownership on development of the platform, and now they do. So that's a very positive change for us.

    I actualy like visually what I think it will look like when finished, I find it hard to communicate with proper reply or quote features but I see those all being re-added as they update the forums,

    It definitely seems more integrated into the playstation.com family. If you remember, on the old forums, the top banner was drastically different than the rest of the site. I imagine that this new behavior is reflective of the fact that Sony has full control over the forums platform now

  • First of all this is NOT the new Forun layout. It is the start of a new forum and its starting point of what will become the new forum. Every one will have to hang around to see what it will become!

  • It's not a bad start I guess, but I think it was incredibly stupid to update in its current format. Yea, it's a plus that they have control to customize things, but they should have done quite a bit more before "upgrading".  Hopefully their devs are quick to get this place back to something decent.

    As the platform matures it will only get better. It was a rough start, but I think the good new benefits out weigh the negatives. As we move along with new revisions, there will be less and less negatives.

     

    I actually liked the not bumping of threads. At least the tired old dead horses would roll off the screen faster.

    On day one it was indeed "pretty silly", but it's been how many days now since the relaunch & it remains so, it is still unfit for purpose.

     

    I'll pop back again in due course to see if it has improved.

  • In its current state, this forum is garbage - and no, I'm not talking about any people, but the actualy forum itself.  I agree that Sony needs to feel humiliated with this mess they've created, and not that people are dropping off of here like flies, no one cares anymore about it in the higher-ups.  I don't look for it to improve too much anytime soon, and like others, I'll stop in from time to time, but to be a regular poster here at this point is out of the question.

  • :^/ My thought is that it is a work in progress, and as such it is inappropriate to judge it yet.

    Having said that, I see potential here. How well it will be realized remains to be seen.

  • I sort of like the new layout, I just don't like the spacing between post.

  • The format of this forum has improved since the first day I logged in just as it was announced. Anyone who has complained are only doing so because that'said all they know who at to do for the sake of personal attention.

     

    If the forum does not meet your personal satisfaction, leave and come back at a later time to see the changes. Complaining for the sake of complaining is not going to help you or the progress of this forum.

     

    There are multiple threads on this topic, yet each and every OP has chosen to create their own thread on this topic rather than contribute to an already existing "discussion" on it in order to make sure that they are noticed. That is the sadest thing about any new forum or forum format. Personally, if I were a Moderator here, I would merge all current threads on this topic and sticky it.

  • Conrad Max:  There are dozens of former members from this forum on the other forum that was created by a certain member when the OT Board was shut down, and none of those who left here like these forums in their current state at all,  Sometimes people are not attention seekers, but I do understand that the multiple threads on this subject should be merged.  As for those of us who complain, we have a right to.  I've been hanging out on these forums for nearly 17 years. and I've never seen them so bleak and empty as they are now.

  • I think the new forums stink. But having gone through forum changes here years back I expect improvment just as before. Give them time and pray.
