That little 50 pixel bar is useless.
I am sure I can speak for a lot of people when I say, "The only reason that bar would come in handy would be to search for a specific thread, but people now don't even know how to search." The least you could do is make it stationary. If I wanted to goto a different forum/sub-forum I would click the super handy tabs that link me to Off-Topic, Support, FAQ, PS General, and Games. If you need a search bar for ease of access to the other forums that is sad.
Why don't you focus more on a better forum map?
It Looks Amazing.One thing i'm curious about is Ps General. Will PS3 and PS4 be in two different categories now?
PlayStation General will remain the same as it is today
So PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (a game that got mediorcre reviews at best and didn't sell well) gets it's own forum but we can't get a seperate forum for ANY of the PlayStation consoles? I hate how almost every thread dies on these forums now within two hours because of this.
One if the many reasons the angry avatar is staying, at least for now!
Well said @semajmarc87
They only go to mvp's for input. They don't care what we think. They only humor us with these shield icon crap things
@ToXiC_Skiils - Don't be to annoyed about that, I got & still get the distinct feeling that they only go to the MVP's to go through the motions too.
I think it looks kind of nice, actually. I never really did get used to this blue theme, reminds me too much of the old PSN store.
My guess it they're going to finally streamline everything with the new overlay at us.playstation.com, then do away this odd fragmentation we have between the front page, the forums, and the blog.
On the floating banner thing, I guess I'll just have to see how it works with the new layout. It was horrible with this layout, perhaps it will integrate better this time around?
However, it depends on what is on the banner. If I'm on this site, I don't go anywhere besides forum related stuff... so if i'm always fighting a moving banner with links that aren't even relevant to me, I won't be happy.
Hopefully it'll work out better. Dealt with a similar one IGN before and on parts of Nintendo's site and both of them only managed to get in the way and end up being a hinderance to how the site loaded and how I was able to browse them.
