Posted:Hello,

Im shure that malcom has been working his butt off to get this up, and i dont mean to sound ungratfull, but I have to register my intence adverse reaction to the changes. Only by giving feedback like this do i think we can get the board to its best operation.

A list:

I dont like the new post smileys, whats coleman gonna use?

Avatars are making the site even slower.

I dont see the point in treaded threads, this isnt slashdot.

I dont like the new layout, clunky as fec, huge space for the name of thread started (normally pretty short) but tiny space for thread title.

Dont like the star rating on threads, its pretty redundant cos you know how popular a thread is by the number of posts.

Dont like the fact all my pm's have gone

dont like no member status.

dont like the colours

it looks like a pre-www bbs

what and all the collaps buttons and stuff for? for threading, but no-one is gonna use them. where is the button for replying to the whole thread? why you go and make it more complicated instead of less?

there are other things, an ill pop back as i work my way round, but you really ought to know that it makes me feel like abandoning hop all together.

I'm afraid that to not have people listed 4 times you'll have to do the delete-add thing for everyone. frown

(at least mine has...)

and I actually like that you can now add any thread as a favourite to be updated, instead of just the one you started yourself.

(or maybe I never got it that we could anyway).

Posted:hey i think my member number changed too. odd....

ya i like the favorite threads thing too

tho one thing i don't like now is on the email notifications for PMs, it doesn't put the content of the PM like it used to. that way i could keep a copy of every PM even if i deleted it frown


I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:i like the new HOP
malcom has done and excellent job and would have spent alot of time and money on it
i love the way you can personalize what you see
it could use a little bit more gadgets and things that do stuff here and there
(im refering to all the technical stuffs like bb? whatever they are but they sound useful)
but lets be thankful that malcoms working hard at changing and adding things to our lovely little HOP
why dont we watch it grow before our eyes
