Just thought I'd circle the rather significant amount of wasted space.
I suppose it doesn't really matter, but these new forums have huge areas assigned to dynamic space for giant avatar pictures, for low-res devices, giant buttons for replies, multiple toolbars for +1s, setting notification options, and quicklinks to search-filtered topic listings, rather than full ones. These are useful, and are improvements for people posting and browsing via mobile devices. I don't feel it's an improvement in actually using the forums. That is, the reading and writing of posts. The layout makes it slower to browse, read, and type on my current system, as well as puts fewer items and less text on my screen at once. Overall, I'm not impressed, but it's the sort of inevitable and necessary surrender of usability that is common, and honestly, should be embraced, in recognition of the modern era of unified devices with really poor input/output capabilities.
On issues that can be helped, please change the default forum settings from 'e-mail me for everything, all the time, such as when someone mentions my name or replies to a thread.
I'm also wondering how the skyrim LP I was doing, with it's 1200 images, would choke the dynamic loading. If there is an archive to be uploaded, I'd love to examine that thread first.
Oh, and the forums are quite slow. The preview page is lagging further and further behind my typing as the length of the post increases.
Some things can probably be fixed by forum themes, but this layout feels like browsing via a crud-infested browser, with half the screen filled by toolbars for purple monkies.
There are some actual improvments, like the resizable reply boxes, but hopefully you can find some themes available that would allow me to use my device, even if it can be used by more than two fingers at once. They should be fixable, but it, as is, these new forums are not an improvement.
