Let the griping begin!



1. The lack of proper image hosting is a big problem when it comes to making original content. I am also concerned that with the taking down of the old website I have lost my nice screenshot placements in my reviews that I got sorted out for them when I posted them.
2. The forums desperately need more categorization. For example, you could add sections for Native Game discussions, WINE/Emulated game discussions, General Gaming discussions, General Linux discussions, General Hardware discussions, etc.. It would also be nice if some of the discussions in All other Chat could be subsequently re-categorized, but that would be a lot of work.
3. My avatar refuses to work, and I can not add a link to my homepage anymore.
4. I am missing the Shoutbox already.
5. There are no emoticons. I repeat, THERE ARE NO EMOTICONS!!!!!



Other than that the website just needs some gradual evolution and for everyone to take the time to be comfortable with it again.

On 3: it looks like any and all uploaded avatars refuse to work, plain and simple. Just tried to upload 3 in various sizes, it just won't work.

EDIT - Gravatar, OTOH, works fine. Better than nothing.

Emoticon down, repeat emoticon down!!

Jokes aside thanks for the input, I will be looking into all of it sharpish.

Edit > Added websites to profiles

Avatar uploading should be working, would help if when changing the upload buttons code i gave it an action to do...

Another one: the mail notification doesn't give a quick view of the replies anymore, and clicking on the link seems to lead to the previous version of the forum, ultimately giving a nice 404.

Is this on articles or forum? Both work fine for me but I will double check.

Hyeron commented on 16 January 2013 at 1:23 pm UTC

Mh. Seems to be fixed. Dunno if you did something, but it's cool now.

Hamish commented on 16 January 2013 at 5:56 pm UTC

Avatar working, website link working, forum categorization improving. And yet I can't smile...

EDIT: Maybe not, only seeing my Desura link on my posts.

Liam Dawe commented on 16 January 2013 at 6:07 pm UTC

Website links wheren't put into posts, they will be on the new version pushed later

Hamish commented on 16 January 2013 at 6:09 pm UTC

Well, I put it in my biography anyway, so I am good for now.

Also, there are quotes in the comments, and yet no reply option now.
