We had the same topics with a lot of the Limbo group about the GameOn mag
"what a waste of time" or "it wont last 3 issues" etc
then the same about reviews....
and i was told to prove them wrong with that (wasn't i plat)

We are trying new ideas, we have "reasons" behind all the ideas
if it dont work, it not a biggie, we just change it and move on, all happy
its not about proving someone right or wrong, well it shouldn't be.

Re: A new forum layout coming

Yep, not seen any numbers but they seem to be popular with the regulars.

Got no real opinion on the site layout as I go direct to new posts , as long as it works I am good.

Very true Rash, but I've never professed to know all the answers (mainly because I don't and I'll be the first to admit that). I never said that my opinion is universally superior and you're doing it wrong (again, just because I'd personally use a different approach to solving the problem of "lots of forums making a long front page", means nothing).

I figured that you'd be interested to hear people's feedback, both positive and negative and I gave my thoughts on how I would have personally chose a slightly different approach and my justifications for doing so.
Of course such a discussion would have been more useful a few weeks ago when you were planning potential solutions to the problem, rather than after you implemented your chosen approach, but I feel that it's better to drop a slice of my brain on you, even if it's not exactly timely.


I have gave my reasons for my thoughts on the matter, which is a million times better than just saying "Nah I'm not a fan" without any expansion.


And on a much lighter note:

Pah, half the reason I get out of bed in the morning is to create something impressive that dismissive arseholes said couldn't be done. Making people eat humble pie is the best feeling in the world

Re: A new forum layout coming

I tend to use the "new posts" button to actually see what conversations are developing across the forums so having the tabs are neither here not there for me. I do think they're good though. I think it will make the forums much more accessible for new members to find their way round.

I don't know if the threaded and hybrid views are new. I've only just found them.

Oh, and while I think about it I was trying to raise the number of posts per page but the control panel option doesn't let me change it. Is that deliberate or is it a problem?

Not sure if thats intended or not, id expect we have a default setting but I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to set it to what you want. Will try and take a look at it this week.
