Also, where can I find the feedback section?

Edit: Nevermind. Found it buried at the bottom of the page.

How apt.

"SO. MANY. of you hated the fact that “all” would show competitions and ask threads."

Why couldn't you have just had some sort of option to stop competitions and ask threads showing in the "all" tab...

Now if i truely want to see ALL the threads i have to have 3 different windows open for the website.. This seems like a backwards step to me.. Afterall the ALL option in no longer all..

you have the menu bar at the top hide when you scroll down isnt this suppose to show all the time?

@winifer Use custom :D The requests for this feature were constant, so we'll see how it goes

@hackerace We put in the sticky "Top of the page" button to get back to the menu quickly- that's definitely something we can look into though if enough of you dislike the disappearing bar (this was something requested by the Mydealz audience, so maybe it won't work for you guys)

Wheres Custom i can't see it on the new layout?.. Forget this one i've seen above how to do it! think that'll do for my problem.
Don't suppose it would be possible to have an option of setting the default landing page to go to this custom tab if it's set up?
I can see at the moment it's only got the obvious options like All, Deals etc

But I also can't seem to work out how to get to a list of the threads i've subscribed to?

@winifer Yep subbed threads will roll into the "Saved" tab in your profile - should be live shortly!

Re https://www.hotukdeals.com/custom? as your default page, yeah we will put this in profile settings for ya (party)

Initial impression (on a PC) is that each posting takes up too much space. The heat indicator (really necessary?) and heat buttons using space at the top instead of at the side of the post seem to be responsible for this. This also makes the uneven and aesthetically less pleasing than the old layout.

I'd also like the option to have all in the 'All' tab.

@SuffolkLad222 Thanks for your feedback! Aesthetically speaking, we want to give the new version chance to "bed-in" but we'll definitely take note of your thoughts.
You'll also probably be a fan of the Custom tab option above (regarding your comment on "all")

Loving the tile display on tablet! Thanks! :3

Does the "notify me when there are any replies" check box mean that I will only be notified when replies to my comment are made if I check that box?

If so, that will become tiresome very quickly.

Nope - go check your settings :D hit profile / notifications

And re feedback, hit the button at the bottom of your page to see the footer. Feedback lives in there :D

Since switching all of my comments are going for review before being published. Is this to become standard when the switch goes live?

When viewing Deals in 'text view', it doesn't state when a deal is expired, the title is greyed.

I can't view Misc or Feedback in 'text view'.

Infinite scrolling doesn't help when trying to access 'Feedback', etc, at the bottom of the page. Sometimes the page auto scrolls before I can click on 'Feedback'.


I can 'like' my own posts.

@juliet_bravo The selection of a single member to "unmute" should not really show [Unmute all] on the button; just [Unmute].

https://images.hotukdeals.com/comments/content/x8Hup/30925117.jpg

It is not clear if clicking that button will unmute everybody, or just the single selection.

PS. Where is the "Preview" option during "Post a comment"?

^ PPS. Note how the "juliet_bravo" text is not a link following the "@" above (in comment # ... oh, I don't know which comment, because the numbers are not there... presumably due to infinite scrolling now).

@juliet_bravo Re: Username changes (every 6 months)...

https://images.hotukdeals.com/comments/content/aMzCO/30925279.jpg
Will there be a viewable audit log of changes for a user (unless they have requested this information be kept private)?

Will such a change ripple through all their previous comments and quoted comments, so that we do not have the (current) "feature" where a user may have changed their name, but previously posted quoted comments still display their previous name?

@juliet_bravo

Changing "Your Description" & typing more than 160 characters; message indicating this is fine:

https://images.hotukdeals.com/comments/content/JCg5l/30925417.jpg

However,
if you click "Cancel", then [Update description] again, the original
(pre-edited) text is not shown; the entry field is just blank:

https://images.hotukdeals.com/comments/content/O4FKe/30925417.jpg

This is "fixed" if you reload the page again; the previous pre-edited description returns when [Update description] is used.

@juliet_bravo ^ It took three attempts to post my last comment (about "Your Description" changes).

Comment previews: The "comment" box is formatted to show you uploaded images, emoji etc while you build your comment - there is no preview functionality currently as the entire comment itself shows how your final comment will look, however if that is a problem for users we can definitely look into options

Agree re "Unmute" - it's unclear. Will get that sorted

Ditto hover text, good spot

---

@tregs click the "footer" button on the right to get to the footer. Good point re text only, leave those with me.
@shadey12 have put that in as a request with the app team

OK made a quick change re "Are you sure you want to delete your comment?"

Re username changes, previous usernames will not be visible to the public. This is something that we permit on other "Pepper" platforms, however we do need to see how it works for hotukdeals. It may well be something we revoke.

Can I just check with you both @tregs and @fanpages that you have this notification setting checked? (/profile /settings /notifications) http://prntscr.com/f8zkpn

loving the formatting of new posts how it previews your embedded items etc..

One bug i've found..

On Chrome (maybe other browsers) if you scroll through you notifications too fast, you end up causing the page to scroll instead and losing your notification pop up.

also where is the like to the Feedback section in the drop down menu?

Bit of a lag with update comments being reported...

On the non-gopep site:

@fanpages can you scroll down on this page and just confirm for me you don't see the same view as I, please? Which browser are you using? Perhaps it's a layout issue (on our side) as opposed to a missing buttonhttps://images.hotukdeals.com/comments/content/ZRE05/30925725.jpg
Yes you can edit your post without leaving a reason :D
