- Cant stand seeing the top 3 posts of a subforum. It just makes scrolling through the list to find the one you want take that much longer. And since they (subforum names) arent even visually differentiated very well from said post topics it can be hard at a glance to even tell whats a subforum and whats a thread topic from within one. Especially if the thread title contains certain keywords one would normally associate to a subforum title.
- Too much space is taken up on mobile device layout with a character portrait and name for every post. Sooo much wasted space makes browsing tedious.
- If i go into “general discussion” what I want to see is “general discussion” not a whole crap ton of different subforums clumped into “general discussion.” If you want to provide that option fine, but if I select the option to only view GD when I open GD then that selection should be persistant. I shouldnt have to make the selection every single time I click on GD.
With all the things above, by the time I scroll through all the crap to find the subforum I want and then filter out all the unwanted subforums INCLUDED in that subforum to see what I want I’ve already ran out of time and patience with it and I dont even care any more. I rarely even look at the EVE forums since these new changes and from the lack of new topics I see when I do bother to go through the hassle, I think a lot of ppl must feel the same way.
Dont get me wrong, I appreciate the efforts to implement new forums and I understand and approve of the reasons behind it. It reminds me a lot though of the changes made to the camera system. The reasons behind it were valid as was the need for it. Getting rid of “legacy code” in order to make new things possible. However they could have done so while leaving the basic functionality and default feel of the camera intact. Instead they chose to change things to something they thought would be better or neat and ended up making something that the user had to actively change the available options and disable “features” just to make it usable.
