How do you like the new forum?

Recommended Posts

Hello;

Some feedback from my side: Still very hard to find Hotfixes. I would assume that they would be located in Updates section (Where the SP3 is for Airbus). Maybe there is a reason to why aren't the HF located there?

We are working hard on making access to files easier, should not take long.

Huh, so this is why i've been getting error "The page you are trying to access is not available for your account. " when trying to download A318/319 & A320/321 hotfixes or not ?

 

I guess so but i'm not sure. If you please confirm this :).

I can't seem to reply to topics like the aerosoft CRJ, etc, not sure if this is just me but I would like to just have an input into some of the products in developments, I can reply to other topics, it's just the products in development I can't comment on.

Due to the big ID/Avatar box on the left, short messages take a lot of white space vertically.

On my big 27 inch screen the forum will display only three(!) forum messages at a time. Can you improve this?

Also, for some reason my messages have double line height between the paragraphs. Can I change this somewhere?

The paragraph issue is a known one. The new editor is far (really far) better but the interpretation of older messages has a few issues we'll check out. I'll check on the other issues but we really wanted to have a lighter (less dense) layout. It's 'modern' and 'flat'. I do understand this might go against what experienced users might like. 

Can you add the option to filter new content by forum

Is that an option? I'll check.

I think the download files are still being indexed. Can you try tomorrow?

Hi I get the same error on the Hotfix links saying "The page you are trying to access is not available for your account. " I  was able to get them on previous version of the forums, I am logged in correctly?

Any thoughts?

I actually think your profile looks pretty good:

That was most likely a spam post that was deleted by one of the mods immediately including getting the account banned.

I do that actually a few times a day...

yeah, I'm also deleating one or two per day. Spammers are active again in the last days.

When viewing the new forum for the first time there were like 250 spam posts or so! Should all be gone now though.

It's sleeker and far faster than it ever has been. It has some drawbacks in the UI department, for me at least. However, I do like it.

I guess "flat look" is back in if you go by Microsoft's recent OS's as a "vision of fashion".  Personally I'm not a fan of the flat look as it removes key visual cues as to what is enabled/disabled and what currently has the focus.

 Flat is a mobile device solution not a desktop solution.  Windows 3.1 was "flat" ... but I guess it's more like fashion over form ... retro 70's look came back "in fashion" ... maybe if I wait long enough all my 80's clothing will be back in fashion ... big question is will I fit into my old 80's clothes! ;)

So not a fan of the new UI, but I'll deal with it.

Cheers, Rob.

EDIT: FYI, I tried to reset my password, got new link, clicked link and entered my new password and got a error but it continued to log me.

I like modern and simple/minimalistic, but I do not like wasting a lot of valuable screen estate, meaning big screens but little info and a lot of scrolling. I hope you can tune it a bit.
(you asked my opinion, now you got it
;))
Oh, by the way, please do not permit giant bannered signatures, it will spoil the new look 
:P

Fast, modern... in one word: Superb.

Congratulations.

 

EDIT: The circular avatars while looking good, don't fit all photos. I guess we can adapt, but still...

I am gonna be totally honest.I really do not like it. This forum looks very amateur to me and I cannot find hotfixes. The old forum was very nice! If you are gonna keep this, PLEASE change the CSS to something nicer! I will say that it must have taken you a lot of time to make, and I congratulate you guys on that! I could never make something this good!
