    Will the 'Reactions' be updated with all comments/posts from the previous forums or will it begin from scratch?

  • First impression immediately after logging in; nice, simplistic look & feel.
    Will post more when I get a hang of what's going on ;)

  • So much faster for me o/

  • Total surprise! I love it, I'm excited to see how much often I will be here :) Great design and easier for the eyes.

  • I think it looks good. Not sure about the speed on mobile yet, but I will soon know

    Not a fan of the new forum style. The posts looks -extremely- cluttered together and it feels hard to catch individual posts with a glance, because there is not enough distance between them, or missing much more visible divide between them so you clearly can tell each post apart.. I feel i have to squint to focus on indivual posts now, i am thinking my forum use is going to go drastically down now.

    There seems to be some UI displacement on mobile devices when viewing in full site mode !other then that it looks amazing!

    Main ranger: Adalyn Del Rayna. Plz stop saying raids are toxic.. raids are what you make them

  • Why delete the sub forum icons? Also a little bit more color wouldn't be bad. It's way too pale. Take a look at the german community forum . Way more pleasant on the eye.

  • Hi guys... while making changes to the breaks/lines, pls dont change the mobile view. The smartphone view is pretty much clean and neat with clear dividers.. and uncluttered too..

  • One little QoL with the UI that could change is if the red squiggly when typing no longer showed up as you are typing the word, but only after hitting enter. Very very mild thing, but it'd help things look a little cleaner when typing :)

  • It would appear that you cannot put images in posts, only link to outside sources? If this is the case it really kills the fun of the Share your Screenshot type threads.

  • @AegisRunestone.8672 said:
    I have another issue: so, we're allowed to edit a post for 15 minutes after it's posted.

    But what about threads like fan stories where we have to update the first post to show the latest updates to the story? That'll happen days later.

    Also relevant for, say, guild recruitment posts where it's often necessary to change details over time.

    On a related note, not sure I like threads being sent to moderation if you make an edit? Posted a thread just now, wanted to make a minor formatting change... aaaand it's gone, with no way for me to access it. This feels like I'm wasting a moderator's time just to add a little extra spacing, and it's causing me anxiety because I don't know if my thread is just gone into the ether lol

  • When you are typing on mobile view, the "draft saved at" message obscures the "Post Comment" button for a while.. kinda mildly annoying.. pls look at the positioning?
