  • @Ayespy

    I was waiting this moment, more than the email client :D



  • @Ayespy Search is MUCH faster. Entire website is faster. I'd like to see topic line items a lot closer together. Mousing over the menu items at the top of the page makes them flicker and go in and out of blurriness.



  • Looks great. Runs fast.

    Is there any reason that the thread tools "Reply, mark undread, sort by etc" are repeated both at the bottom of the first post and at the bottom of the thread?



  • Holy crap it's FAST! Excellent job, and the style is nice, but where are all the previous categories and threads? Were they all deleted?



  • @D0J0P I think they all seem to be here under Categories. I did a search and found my first and subsequent posts.



  • Why all the Canvas fingerprint and Client rectangles being used a hundred plus is just a little much. Hopefully clicking on a link to post will actually take you to the first unread post once I am on the second time around so it has already seen where I have been and not the start of the thread like it does now. Other than that liking the no captcha to post and it seems damn quick. Oh any chance to filter out the foreign languages/languages you will never read in the unread post.

    Yes. I'd like to be able to hide posts. Really like it.



  • I would love an option to change the background color. Actually I'd like to be able to set text, heading and link colors.

    Hi, you can choose to ignore topics or categories, then they won't show up in unread.
    It's in the "Watching / Not Watching" dropdown.

    Everything was ported over.

    Indeed you can thanks for the tip. One more thing is there no favourite icon here because when I updated the bookmark for the site in Vivaldi I am left with a blank spot now in my Bookmarks bar. Though I have not restarted the browser so that may solve it, will find out in a second.

    Edit: Nope still no icon there.



  • Looks really nice and runs fast.

    I do find it slightly difficult to use. Maybe this stuff will become obvious when I use it a bit more.

    My main concern is finding unread posts. When viewing from 'Categories', it doesn't seem clear which forums or topics have new posts.

    The 'Unread' view is a nice feature. But as others have said, there might need to be a way to filter them better since there are a lot of forums that we might want to ignore.

    Also, I don't see anywhere to click to go to the last unread post when you click on a topic.



  • This is much, much better.



  • It's going to take a while to get used to this unfamliar forum format. None of my bookmarks work, but fortunately I only had eight of them.



  • @Ayespy That's good, thank you Ayespy and G.Bartsch. It's actually really cool that you get to reply directly to people, just like some kind of blog thread, though I hope that doesn't take away from the forum-like feel of long threads and long conversations. It feels more bloggy, but if it still works like a thread, then it should still be great!



  • One problem I ran into in this forum: If you type a message too long that it goes below the screen, you can't scroll down to see the last part of your message. So you'll have to keep typing without making mistakes and hope that it'll turn out okay when you submit.

    Another problem I see is title text being cut off at the bottom for letters like g's.

    Also, is this forum development going to be an on-going thing?



  • It all looks so clean and tidy!

    I can finally shut off Isuldur's Extension that he wrote for rearranging the text on the Vivaldi Forum Tabs so that when I open more than one Forum Topic the Tabs don't all say, Welcome to th... instead of the actual Topic like, Reader/reada....

    Emoticons don't seem to render to graphics but I never did really cotton to graphics over text anyway -- it's nice!

    Now to see if I can post. :D



  • @isak Thank you, that helps some. But I would like to be able to hide topics from the main complete list under any main section. Liking the forum so far. The speed is very pleasing.



  • Hi,

    congratulations for the launch and successful content migration!

    Couldn't have a a deeper look yet, her are first 10 minutes impressions

    cool/great

    • it is significantly faster

    • new editor, especially the Zen Mode..

    <----!I wish I could write this scream for an empty line option in light grey!---->
    hmmm/undecided

    • User settings section now loves huge symbols which could need some explanations (info tool tips)

    <----!I wish I could write this scream for an empty line option in light grey!---->
    uncool/regression

    • no full user name display (just the initials) in the forums header (-> wish)

    • new editor, because WYSISWYG options got significantly less

    • Markdown: yes, simplicity is a great thing, but having no underline or type color options anymore is overshooting that mark

    • new editor, because when hitting the the COMPOSE question mark and proceeding the Markdown help opens in the very same tab (should be a popup/new tab like with JIRA/Confluence, for example), and when navigating back the editor and message just entered seem to be discarded. Luckily, that's not the case, starting to write a new reply brings up the editor section with the last work-in-progress unsent message.

    <----!I wish I could write this scream for an empty line option in light grey!---->

    For the start

    • one huge hope: longer-lasting (or self-refreshing) user sessions

    <----!I wish I could write this scream for an empty line option in light grey!---->

    Again, congrats for this smart move in terms of operations and thank you for your hard work.

    someone
