        No sense in whining about it guys. This is what we have now. I'm sure ED didn't do this because they wanted to. No matter how much you ask for the old forum. It's gone.

          Yes, please bring back old layout of the forum! Totally confusing!

            I suspect that the move was aimed to be more suitable to mobile access (the ever present "mobile tyranny"). Maybe the stats showed the team that the majority of access are coming from small devices. Maybe they just wanted something new. If it was the first one, although I agree that nowadays everyone is using mobile access way more than desktop access (count me out!), I play DCS on a desktop, and thus most of the time I'm accessing the forums I'm on the same desktop, with a bigger screen on my face, not having to squeeze my eyes to read on a tiny little smartphone screen. Anyway, as all things in life, give it time and we will adapt. I see that we can have different themes on this one... it may be enhanced, I guess.

                I dont care about looks, but I do miss a way to just see the threads with new posts

                edit: I also wonder what happened to my photo galleries


                edit 2: does anyone knows what is the meaning of the bargraph beneath the avatar pic, on the left sidebar?

                  Well DCS was heading down the drain for years, so this is just a continuation of the trend I guess. Really sad.

                      The format looks nice and all.
                      Just had a look at that one. It seems to work better as it has Latest Activity and my Subscriptions set at the top level of the forum. Here it is set at a sub-sub-forum level which makes it nigh on unusable as a feature. So hopefully that is simply how it has been set up and can be altered.

                            The forum got hacked? Is that a fall back/backup solution for ermergencies? When do we get back the right forum?

                              Oh no, something changed, it's the end of the world!

                              It'll take some getting used to, that's for sure.

                              What I'm seeing immediately is that URLs now reflect the name of the forum and thread, which is a huge plus IMO.

                              There's also a redirect for old URLs, so they're not broken.

                              It seems messages are now automatically saved while being typed. For someone like me who tends to type long messages that people then probably don't even read, that's another big bonus, not losing my input when I accidentally navigate back or forth, or my Internet fails or something else goes wrong.

                              It seems the old reputation has made its way back, which can be a good thing, especially since I'm only seeing an upvote-possibility, but not one for downvoting, which was mostly bad anyway. And it seems we might now vote on posts instead of users, which has actually been a very long time request of mine.

                              For starters, this looks very promising.

                              Edit:

                              CTRL+b now changes the selected text to boldface. Awesome! Every other forum out there has had that feature for years, and now the ED forum has caught up.

                              Private messages are organized in threads, which is brilliant! With the screenshot contest and a few hickups with gifting via the E-Shop, there was a lot of back and forth in the past week. This is much better now.

                              The Preview pane loads very fast and doesn't require a full page reload. Another cool new feature.

                              The only thing I'm not really liking so far is the Facebook Share button under every user. I avoid Facebook and I'll likely never click that link. It's a visual distraction and if it was possible to disable it in my profile (so that I don't ever see it), I would do so right away.

                              Other than that, there are a lot of really good improvements with this new forum.

                              Edit #2:

                              Is it just me or did the default font size just change to a bigger font? That was fast, and looks like a welcome improvement.

                                Surely this isn't the way it's supposed to look is it? I assumed it was broken. please give us the old one back.

                                          Thanks for your positivity in this otherwise pretty toxic thread.

                                          Obviously there's room for improvement in some areas, but this forum has been live for a few hours and already some react like DCS might just as well stop all together.....

                                          I totally agree with the positive notes you mention. In addition; I mostly browse this forum on my mobile (Android) and the main forum menu has improved imo. Easier on the eye. As for the sub-forum, the font sizes seems way to large, but I'm sure ED will fine tune this along the way.
