Thoughts? The giant forum view + tiny writing on who last posted is annoying. The giant twitter buttons are annoying. The GR site news colours make it look like google ads. Some of the ads still drop down over things. Clan forums are impossible to find. The replay system looks like it's been improved but I never use it anyway sleep.gif

On the other hand my avatar is on the top right and I like seeing my cats happy.gif

I can't say that I am overly impressed.

Quick edit doesn't work.

Medals are gone, which can be good, but there should be an alternative reward system and it sure doesn't look like there is one. I am a level 13 something or other but fuck knows what that means.

Eventually all morons will be catered for. Only problem there is that if you design a system for morons, guess who ends up using that system?!

Some buttons have been made colourful and bigger, but most haven't. The inconsistent feel there makes the whole thing look incomplete imo.

Navigating to different games is now quite difficult too.

Anyway.... Give it time, I am sure the site designers have phases in mind and this is phase 1.

I agree with Flamzy on everything. Everything seems to have gotten worse other than the top-right login window which is awesome biggrin.gif

The buttons make me feel that I've been diverted to digg.com somehow.

I thought it was a lot like twitter but you're right ohmy.gif I've noticed these last 2 updates GR has been following the look of the big successful sites but it really isn't the right thing to do. A site made for link spamming and one for game discussion really shouldn't have anything in common.

I know neither of you guys can see it but the warn bars don't have a % on them anymore, just a non-graduated bar which is a bit annoying. Also when selecting posts for moderation there's a little tick that lights up green wacko.gif The avatar size has changed slightly, has stretched the pic in some weird way dry.gif

Another few more annoying things -.- In clan forums the ad screws things up. The different colours in post boxes offend my eyes. Actually that's all I've got in the time it's taken to write out this post, I'm sure I'll have more to bitch about later happy.gif

Yup, this is one of those things. In the future every person will have his "own" portal etc.

Even with the excuse that this is only phase 1, the site is SOOOO incomplete and inconsistent atm that it just looks and feels so amateurish compared to previous versions.

EG I just pointed to the buttons, Reply, Quote, Edit, Delete, Report and the Tick. Reply had a popup help that made sense. The rest are completely unhelpful. Edit, Delete and Report have no help at all. The tick is retarded. It should be a checkbox of sorts, initially every post is ticked... well it looks that way wink.gif

The fast reply box's Add Reply and More Options buttons aren't consistent with the other buttons and have no help. The fast reply is using standard checkboxes... should I go on?

It's like the "developer" just couldn't make up their mind how the interface is to be designed.

I hate to be critical as I know coders here put in a lot of work and such, but there needs to be something called QUALITY CONTROL as well.

It seems to me that there is nobody actually checking the work properly and if there is, then those people are just saying "yes it's great" like any good "yes men" do.

Sorry, but if I was in quality control here, I would have stamped this as "N00bish" and "Not ready for release".

It's only small stuff too, stuff that could have been fixed easily prior to release... and in a short time too.

That's not [Insert Argument Here] and that's why you don't feed the homeless, they'll get you. I think I've made my point.

Which section are you referring to? ZH or mod section? The former doesn't look that inactive on the first look. Anyway -

This whole site has been on a decline (quality wise) for a long time, I doubt any of the former admins could influence that process. This site used to be all about reviews, look at how that situation changed; now GR is turning into EA official forums 2.0 .

Enjoy it while it lasts.
