Cheers everyone


So we'll have a new help panel which we hope will help new members find their way around the site

You'll see on the right, those arrows will expand / collapse each category, allowing new members to find the answer they're looking for easily.



New thread tools

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af295/HUKDphotobucket/Quotelikeeditdeletebadge.jpg

So you can see the new quote button to the right now, delete post (you can delete your own post) and a "like" function which replaces rep. But ooooo we also have shiny badges! Members will receive these for certain milestones and we'll introduce new ones periodically. I'll mention those again shortly.


By clicking a member avatar, you'll expand a profile panel.

Here you'll be able to interact with the member by PM, follow him/her etc

My avatar looks horrendous in those screen shots you'll notice. We're actually phasing out animated avatars (don't all cry, it's for the good of humanity. Animated avatars are sooo last decade..)

Liking the fact that post count and rep isn't displayed unless you expand a profile panel :thumbsup:

Edited to add: count me in for the testing.

In your profile settings you'll be able to access everything and edit your own info much easier

PM panel is included in your profile also

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af295/HUKDphotobucket/PMPageprofile.jpg

I think it looks much cleaner and up to date and should be easier to use for everyone

Cheers Yeah it's a test account. Not particularly a multi but a test account so I can see things from member perspective if anything is reported broken or whatever. I don't use it on the forum at all Just for testing and fixing stuff

Help Panel
Will the search function work better than current search function?

If the title words of each category aren’t clickable, I’d prefer the expand/ collapse arrows to be on the left of the page, just before each category title.


Thread Tools
Will any of the badges indicate or symbolize a member’s reputation?

Will signatures be visible again?


Profile Settings
What about neutral feedback?


PM Panel
Looks good.

Original Poster Admin

Badges will be for a variety of things- hottest threads, maintaining above an average deal temperature, post count, assisting others, voting fairly, loyalty (logging in every day over a set period of time..) That kind of thing.

Neutral feedback- hmmmm good call

Search function - that's always something we'll try to keep improving but there's a certain element of "We can't please everyone"

PM - yeah I think it's looking loads better

Liking the look of it so far

Any additions to the forum tabs? [SIZE="1"](i.e Help section :whistling: )[/SIZE]

will there be one for trolling? I'm super good at that. And also, can you make a badge for people on the VB1/odb/whoever she decides this week hit list please?

Serious question... Can you either extend PM box limits or include an auto delete function. Its boring having to delete stuff

Banned

What happens to the current rep, do we all go back to zero?

what about allowing a picture or a link in the original post, seems strange to have to make a second post just to add pics/link.

Im up for helping with testing, am on here everday anyway some might as well give something back:thumbsup:

i have a few of those too, *air five*

just a few observations/questions:

no "multiquote" option or edit post?

Is the "like" thing basically just like other forums pour example MSE with the "12 posters found this post useful" then it names them?

Any chance of a dislike option?

When you say "above average deal temp" is there an average for different sections...reason i ask is that a hot deal average would be much higher than a voucher/freebie/competition average so members posting things in them sections would be at a disadvantage?

Have sigs been removed completely?

Any chance of making there more posts in a page instead of 15? so maybe a 15posts per page, 30ppp and 45ppp?

In your example of what a thread would look like, there is no "spam" button is that correct?

Again in your example of what a thread will look like, there is nothing to indicate that Andywedge and yourself are moderators.

You can change this in the options.

Goto Control Panel, then Edit Options, you'll then see Number of Posts to Show Per Page. You can have 50.
