    I disagree that the forum upgrade is a step back... but it isn't strictly an upgrade, either.

    It's more like a side-grade if anything. There've been some good changes, and then we have some less desirable ones. Things like Like/Dislike/Helpful react buttons were honestly to be expected because they are everywhere these days, and the only nice thing about them is that they're anonymous insofar as they don't outright name who is pressing what button. I would agree that they're prone to starting circlejerks though and that they aren't really used as "This is good advice" or "This is bad advice" more than they become "yiss +1 QFT" or "no gfy" reactions.

    But that's honestly more due to human error than forum functionality.

    I agree on many of your other points too. In particular, editing lockouts for posts is asinine and stupid and I wholeheartedly disagree with it - especially because OP edits can be so integral to conversations when new people poke their foot into a thread - and I don't enjoy the limited options for avatars. Why bother giving us avatars when you make them so pitifully small and when they clearly don't scale very well? (Seriously, just look on the left. The resolution is awful on avatars at that size, yet they're fine when small icons. Who the kitten organised these things and let them ship like that? As a forum designer, I'm offended.)

  • while its nice to see the new forums and every thing it can do :o even works with #Twitter too nice to see it all working with out any bugs at all so far. but wonder how long it last. now if they would only done this with #GuildWars2 I would bought the new pack .but still at least these forums will be much better than the old forums ever was B) :p ;)
