Most of us are displeased with the forums moving house, especially since we had memorized our favorite layouts and functions on the old forums, and things here look mostly like a '90s revival of yahoo messenger.
So, let's give some suggestions to what we would actually like to see and maybe, just maybe some of them are possible and will be changed.
I would personally like:
- subforums to properly hide inside when marked as hidden;
- a different color for new threads, please, as it stands now new threads are only slightly boded with the same white color and I cannot see them properly at all; also, please, for the love of cheesecake, make links show up as a different color altogether;
- buttons for colors, fonts etc. which I know where taken out because of certain exploitable features, please fix the vulnerabilities and bring the buttons back;
- the ability to not getting booted to the main page of the forum when marking a forum or subforum inside a category as read;
- a clear set of rules for the moderators and users, with clear guidelines, since Cryptic's policies are extremely different from other PWE titles (I'm looking at you, Neverwinter, with iron clad rules where you aren't allowed to ask for official answers or comment negatively about the game or you get a giant wall of text telling you what a low life you are in a lawyer-esque manner as opposed to, say, PWI or FW, where we can ask directly and demand certain injustices/ questions/ clarifications or bugs to be fixed or answered without fear that our mods will take the naughty stick and slap us);
- a different font/color/lay-out for categories and game forums vs. their subforums and threads, as it is now it's extremely dull and tiring to go through.
I end my series of thoughts here, for now, and I ask if everyone else has suggestions that don't include troll 'let's move back to the old forums' , but to improve what we were forced to have here, instead, to please add them so we can let someone know how to make out transition better.
