Let's play a game!

The rules are very simple. Each member has to post one thing about the new forum/design they don't like. This has to be a bug,, something that I can fix, not something like I can't find my way round etc etc.

Rules:
  • Each member may only post one thing
  • You may not post again in this thread
  • You may not post duplicate bugs that are given by other members
  • You may not post follow ups to other members posts
  • You must give something that you don't like that CAN be fixed.
  • You may not mention the colors as new skins are being added soon
  • If you have references and/or examples of your bug please add a screenshot or explain the bug in further detail

Each bug/error will be resolved, that is your prize.

Have fun.

The only thing that i do not like is the time is shown on the bottom of the page could you amend that so its on the top of the page i.e like the old forum.

Cheers,

Done.

Not sure if this is the best position for it, however it'll do for now. If you wish to comment on it please create a new thread in this forum.

Thumbs Up Re: Let's play a game!

Instead of 1 hour ago, or whatever for the post time, can it show the actual time of the post.

Re: Let's play a game!

Why the empty columns left and right of the screen? Do they serve a purpose? (now or in the near future) if not, can’t they be smaller?

Again, this is called the background of the page. With the current design there are no plans to alter the overall design; width of the design etc. I'm sure a background image could be added to possibly "cheer" the place up though.

Re: Let's play a game!

Ok,seeing as you can`t make the background smaller I reckon I get another go!
Can you make it possible to enter at todays topics like I used to on the old forum.With only a crappy 28k dial up,its rather like,having to knock on the front door,wipe my feet,hang my coat up,sit down and make a brew every time I enter!

Not really. My only suggestion for that is to make; http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/search.php?do=getdaily your home page or a Favorite within IE and use that to get to the forum.

Hope that helps.

Re: Let's play a game!

I feel that the ranking system that has decreased me and several others as a Minore is very negative. It might be a funny thing for mass posters, but for others...
Besides, who would like to be called as Bambino when he/she joins to a new forum, then after posting several hundred posts gets even worse title as Minore? Great system - if you do not want new members here.
Not fun

Re: Let's play a game!

Pexi, minore is just an Italian age grouping, it's not saying your a minor member.
Personally I think bambino is quite cute anyway.
Maybe someone should think of a different group of post count categories.
You could do it on Alfa models, but then there's a BIG argument about which is better, and new members would be Arna's, which they wouldn't like much.

I didn't think that it says that my member is minor

It reads: "Pexi - Minore", and it's like seeing my alter ego called minor, lesser person. But you should ignore my opinion, it's just a minore talking. Don't pay any attention.

This User Rank system is under viewing at present and I doubt that we'll keep it like this.

Re: Let's play a game!

OK, I've got a proper one now. In 'today's topics' when you hover over the thread name a tooltip comes up tellign you the text from the first post in that thread. Is it possible to change it so it shows the text from the last post in the thread instead?
Much more useful I think.

Re: Let's play a game!

For my one allowed suggestion, I would like to be able to see the first few lines of the last post on each thread on the todays posts page, like we used to on todays topics.
This helps you when you are deciding which threads interst you. I know you can see the first post by hovering over it, thats good, but after a while you know what that says, it's the last popst you need to see. Ofton when posts were short you could see the whole thing on TT, and didn't need to open it. Makes a huge differance to the ease of use.

Also do you intend to remove the old menu from the Left hand side, cos it doesn't work now and would confuse newcomers.

Re: Let's play a game!

Sorry Mitch
BTW, that menu thingy on the left is only there coz you're using a alfaowner.com/alfaowner address, change it to:
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum
And it should go away. Give you more space too.

Re: Let's play a game!

Why is it that sometimes all the text in a reply is shoved over into the very right hand side of the thread area ,and why some times is the page wider than the screen width so that I have to horizontally scroll to see it all,,,when both of these combine together its mad ,I have to scroll all the way to the right to read the text that is in about 1/20 of the forum width
