    If I may add a suggestion. A little colour at the bottom of each post where the agree etc buttons are would look nice, even if it's just the numbers of the people agreeing within the boxes.

    Toss this in the suggestions thread! - http://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/438132/post-new-forum-bugs-issues-here
    This has been done.

    I truly believe the "lol" option at the bottom of each post is a very bad idea. Every single forum that uses it has it corrupted by it being used to insult the poster as "laughing at" and not in good humor.

    Best to take it right off.

    I have heard of this, it was raised in the thread discussing the new forums. They can always drop It if things get bad, but I would hope we are better than that.

    Well I have to say quoting seems better. Used to be a pain to separate my first line from the other posters. And some times it multiple boxed the post. Also I can now cut and paste, I used to have to switch to all browsers for that.

    We will drop if it is abused. No worries.

    They didnt even have balls to put the disagree button in. I guess its to avoid todays fragile kids crumble under the pressure of someone disagreeing with them.
    Yeah, some other sites that I frequent have the "disagree" or 'thumbs down" option. It works just fine; unpopular opinion or just plain idiotic posts get their fair share of them, whereas intelligent and reasonable posts get the opposite treatment. 

    I personally find it fascinating to see how the general community reacts to various types of posts on those sites. It should not be something to fear.

    I HAVE AWESOME'D YOU, AND ATTACKED YOU WITH CAPSLOCK. :)

    Looks pretty good on the phone, but still has the light color theme until we get Vanilla to change it to dark. :)

    Honestly... who cares about being "liked" or not by some random, unknown person on the Internet ?

    I hearted this, because EXACTLY. It's purely fluff content for our forums.

    I am still looking to get a forum title of "forum jerk!".

    Why did you remove the recent forum posts off the main screen?

    Can you put that feature back please.

    One of these days, someone's idea for improvement will actually result in that thing being better.......one of these days.

    OK, where did the '5 recently posted forums banner' go on the front page of MMORPG. It was the biggest draw of your site for me as I could see what people we talking about at a glance; Where did it go?
    If you click on the forums tab it's still there, in a new form tho.
    Daft. Sure, its helpful at the start of the forums section for sure, but it should also be on the cover page of the site.  When I come to this site, I want to see everything at a glance....articles, videos, and recent forums chats. All of these things are great for keeping up with what is going on, not just via articles, but based on what people are talking about. Half the time, someone has posted a forum hit on something news-worthy before the MMO staff can even write about it.

    Being honest, if I have to dig for that section now I prolly wont use it anymore....i'll just forget about it.

    As noted in the main suggestions/bugs thread (here - http://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/438132/post-new-forum-bugs-issues-here ), it's coming back soon! Should be up today, we hope.
    Hexellent!

    Meh, it usually takes a few days to get use to when something changes like this but it will be fine and we wont think of it at all in a week. The forum looked more or less the same for so long time that it just look a bit weird right now.
    I don't see myself using features like Lol and awesome that much though.

    Now THAT's the state of todays everything. 

    I can AGREE, think its AWESOME or INSIGHTFUL, but I can't find it so rediculous that it makes me LOL?
    Just like you only LIKE stuff on facebook.. Its stupid.

    Reminds me of the new games these days where it only shows you your KILLS and not your DEATHS cause it might upset you.

    I lol'd, until I realized..... I've been 'uncommon'ed' also!!!!

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    What is going on with the not being able to create a post?
  • Loke666Loke666 Member EpicPosts: 21,441
    One thing I do really like is that the forum is way faster now. As soon as I hit "post*" it actually does it instead of thinking for a while.

    I just want to say thank you to staff of MMORPG.COM fpr their hardwork and effort that went in to upgrade the forum.

    Not everyone may agree with the new format and I realized that I myself need sometime to get use to it.
     
    But I am glad that MMORPG.COM has continue the tradition of making its forum F2P without any pay2win features :3

    Testing out if my first quote or smiley use gets me a new badge. We are suposed to grind for badges, maybe? It's an mmo forum afterall  o:)
    Wait!! Badges for first quote?? Count me in  :awesome:  =)
    @Sephros ; Let me try this aswell =)
