Soo....am i the only one who hates this new format? Granted i didnt liek the poorly placed picture in the back of the old one, but still... they should do what most sites do and let you choose a white or black format.  I dont like the placement of the threads too much, but i can get over that if they allow a colour change between black and white.

What are your thoughts on the new forum?

Honestly, I hate it. It deleted my Stage Creation Thread, my Soundtrack Thread, and my Zombie Survival Thread. Did you see how much detail I had in those? Yes it did warn us of data loss but I was not expecting anything that for back. It also demoted me from a Sackboy.. But other than that. It's ugly, unorganized, and a lot more complicated than needed. The older forums were a hell lot better. I want to change my icon but it won't let me change that. Not to mention every single forum looks the same now. I miss the older version Smiley Sad

So far I haven't had to much trouble with the new layout but in the thread about what stages we would like to see my second post ended up right behind my third post which made no sense. Don't really see the problem with the black background but hey to each there own.

Another problem is you can't tell who is replying to who, you can't tell what the hell is somebody's signature or part of the post -cough cough animeprophet-. The whole Kudos thing is a little rediculous too, I prefered just normal likes.

You all are new so I guess you aren't really used to these forums, but we had a similar one before the Jive turkey one.  Honestly, I'm glad for this one to be back, and before likes, we did have Kudos, actually for a few years before the transition to Jive.

 

Despite the issues many are having, you'll discover this forum is much more practical to use.   In addition, Sony tech or Lithium tech (whoever is updating the forum) is concurrently updating the forum, but primarily removing bugs first before changing the aesthetics of the site.

 

Please just have patience and you'll soon realize how much better this forum is over Jive.  And as for posts being deleted, sorry to hear that, but if you are a great poster here, then you'll be sure to reach your past post count and create better topics for the rest of us to join in on.

Comic Sans lol. 

Sorry xD But yeah I read that the forums had a similar way earlier, but I really prefered the version before (that's just my opinion). I'll recreate the eventually, when I feel like rewriting paragraphs and paragraphs ( the original posts were paragraphs of detail ).

I think the part of the forums that got it the worst was Twisted Metal, they had a pretty cool look going on.
