Hmmm. I've been away for a bit and didn't notice we switched until about 10 minutes ago.Honestly, I don't know what to think about the new forums yet. I haven't had a chance to see how responsive they are etc...Design wise however, the page looks like it was primarily designed for a mobile device (same as the new website....) and I am not a fan of that. Specifically, it seems that a lot of space is wasted, and I can see less content on a single screen now without being forced to scroll down. This is especially evident on the front page of the forums, where just the categories of the subforums takes up 3 pages on my laptop, and its a pretty big screen. I would like to see that view compacted some. Actual thread pages are much nicer to look at then they were on the old forum system. But moderator posts do not stand out nearly as much as I think they should. The Red border is nice, but a tad small and I didn't even notice it at first, combine that with the fact that you no longer have a unique avatar and I actually have to search for your comments in threads. I think that moderators, or at least Nexon Employees' posts should stand out immediately. You'll get accustomed to it in short order. Nexon employees have a reddish-orange border around their posts, volunteers have a purple/burgundy/whatever color border, and miscellaneous Nexon employees(customer service, etc) have a blue one. I have no clue what a reaction is, and am a bit disappointed that you guys felt the need to write an entirely new forum system instead of just redoing the old one (which would have kept all of those threads). Slightly off topic, but could you please keep it open for at least a year in read only mode. A lot of old discussions will be completely lost when you shut down the old forums.No clue what reactions are either, something to do with badges and like/insightful stuff. I don't think they wrote a new forum system in the way you're thinking. This is an entirely different forum software we're on now. Vanilla instead of, I believe, vBulletin. And I don't think they've said anything yet about the old forums being trashed completely, just read-only modeOverall, I have to say the forums are much nicer, easier on the eyes for sure, but they do feel like you took out what little individuality the old forums allowed us (no unique avatars, no more titles, I haven't seen any signatures yet, no way of knowing who has actually been contributing to the forums for a while. On the new ones everyone is a "new" user. One last thing I would change, is at the top of each thread where it tells you which subforum you are in (eg Home/Suggestions and Feedback for this thread), could you please add on the actual post to the end of that link like it was in the old forums?They're working on unique avatars, just gotta be patient man. Titles might be a thing, not sure yet. Signatures, honestly, are obnoxious if opened to the general population, so I'm glad there are none at the moment.

tangoran said:Can there be separate sections for individual class (or job, but that's probably too specific for now) discussion? Perhaps a "Classes" section right under General Chat in Maple Discussion and then the class subsections within that. I feel like this is most people's incentive to use forums -- to learn and discuss within the scope of their own job or class. Otherwise everything will just get drowned out in the general Maple discussion and no one will want to read through those posts. If you hope for the forum to expand a lot more you should cater for more specific discussions. I would definitely come back and check the forum constantly just to see what my fellow Bowmen are talking about. I definitely wouldn't come back often to sift through everything going on in general chat.
tangoran said:Also I feel the background is too dark. I think people are more comfortable with coming back to a lighter, brighter website. The current white/black color contrast is claustrophobic. Maybe make it a lighter color by default and/or give an option of a few colors.
tangoran said:Finally, eventually maybe have something to replace the latest developer posts at the top of the home page. All that text makes the page look boring. Maybe banners or something else instead.
tangoran said:I love the new forums and wish to see it develop into the main forum for players to use, so I hope you can consider my long-term recommendations.
