    I agree with Ghosty. The previous forums had how many years to improve? These are the first days, and everything isn't going to suit everyone's needs. The point is, these new forums are basically completely DEFAULT. Nobody likes default. Give them some time to customize it to their, and our needs, and everything will be just fine!!

    Things I Dislike:
    - Small Font.
    - Bland Skin (I realize that will be fixed soon) I actually preferred the IPB default skin, it wasn't so ugly.
    - Everything seems to be compacted more. ie: The Categories, the font for the sub forums, etc. I would'nt mind a longer loading time, or longer page, if everything was just bigger and easy to click. I generally browse the website with my finger on a touch pc and it just makes it hard.
    - The smilies are ick. Gray does not show emotion! haha.

    Things I like:
    - The new forums have given room for improvement. ALOT of room.
    - Moderators now have it easier. Which means they won't be so pissy when I make them angry 0_o
    - Topic Rating System
    - The general feel seems to be easier and less clunky.
    - PS: You can multi-quote, by hitting the multi quote button.

    now its not about just knightonline, its about other games I think its pretty much good idea and hopefully in the future many people will join us from other games.
    Less laggy how? We are running on the same box and this layout is about the same size of the other. Problem are signatures and oversized avatars. IPB resized those and showed a "smaller" version but kept the real ones in the database (very stupid). Once we imported, all those huge graphics are showing up and we need to manually find them and delete them. It's gonna take a while.

    exactly

    I don't think Devile is keeping a list of people who like it or not :P

    Give him something to work with, for example:
    Fast reply box looks abit windows 98
    cant find where i change my pw without having to use "CTRL + F"
    And as mentioned, cant find the off media topic, and wont search for it untill i find it with my eyes :P
    * U dont need to press Quick Reply. U just tipe in the quick reply box.
    * Password change is inside User CP. The FIRST option, Edit Details. Its part of the learning curve.
    * Offtopic media is outside the KO section. Remember this is no longer just a KO forum. U might wanna click at HOME and take a look arround to get familiar. A couple minutes and u will know where's everything.

    Wasn't that how it used to be? Market Section posts counted?

    In general I like the new forum but a few things disturb me.

    • - You can't multi-quote like we used to be able on the old board.
    • - My friends got deleted.
    • - People lost (like me) / gained post count.


    If I find more things, I will gladly post here to help improving ^^
    * Multi Quote, to the right of the quote button.
    * Friends, cant do much about it cause the import didnt pick those.
    * Still tunning that. So far Vault, Offtopic and ALL the Market Sections dont count. My guess is some of the market sections were counting, some not. I'll restore the old forum in another URL to see exactly what was going on.

    Go to HOME, check how the whole forum is now, not just the KO section.

    Knight Online (ko4life.com) redirects just to this section of the forum. Go look arround, there's far more sections than KO.

    As for the rest of useless posts. I will start deleting them. I GOT IT, most of u didn't like the new layout. 90% dont even say why, just "sux", "dont like it" "old > new", etc. How am I supposed to know what exactly I need to change to improve it? Go back to IPB? Sorry, not possible. Unless u have something useful to add, please refrain from posting here.

    I need real feedback to work with. New skin and smilies are top of my todo list. I'll prolly add 1 by tonite and a couple others on the next days. I even found one that's VERY VERY similar to IPB (same colors, layout, buttons, etc.).

    There's a MILLION things I need to do. Day 1 u just bitched like this is the final version of the forum, which is NOT. Hope u guys get that in order to understand your requirement, u need to tell us exactly the details. Right now I feel like a Dad hearing his 1 month baby crying and I don't really know exactly what he needs.

    Cut the whining and the bitching, give me DETAILS of what u would like to see here.

    Thats why there has been an announcement telling you to request a login change and to save your PM's yourself >.<

    There was an announcement which asked all users to backup PM's as Dev was not 100% sure that he could import everything correctly
