Are You Happy With The New Hpc?

Recommended Posts

It's a big no-no from me.

I don't think it's unreasonable to expect new pages to load up in less than 30-60 seconds. This is my biggest bug-bear. Apart from the fact that every other aspect is shite but tolerable.

Edit: By the way Quorky, i'm using Firefox instead of IE6 - as other posters have suggested - and it's still slow as shite.

I'm not that bothered about it, at least on my pc set up its not that bad.

Anyway, isn't this site best for its quality of the content via the rag tag bunch of posters here, and not appearance? Unlike my posts and input :P

If update scripts are running causing the server to grind to a halt, fair enough for the slow down, but which numpty decided to run the scripts now instead of the middle of the night?

Trying to be a bit more constructive,

The black buttons are far too large and intrusive, they need scaling down and toning down. It is very hard to read a post when your eye is getting constantly drawn away, very, very bad design.

On the thread listing page, links are no longer coloured so it is difficult to tell if you have read part of a thread or not.

The page numbering of threads using pretty buttons is far too large and distracting, it also forces linebreaks into thread titles that screw up appearance and ease of use.

CSS is broken in FF/Flock, text can breakout of the layout.

Some Quote blocks have been broken and some haven't?

On a positive note,

The 'watch feature' looks interesting and is a welcome enhancement.

The change of text colour inside of quotes from the old blue on white to the new black on white is also welcome, large blocks of pasted text should now be easier to read.

One other thing,

The rating system doesn't work.

The rating system floats over text obscuring it.

Introducing a rating system into a community 'just because' is a really, really bad idea. It can completely change the way people use a forum, usually for the worst.

Currently if people think a post is excellent or rubbish they reply to it and add a (sometimes) well constructed, thought out comment that adds something to the conversation.

This 'healthy debate' is one of the main features and attractions of how HPC works, you really don't want to screw that up without giving it some serious thought first.

Disable the rating system at least for a few weeks when you have had time to think about the benefits/drawbacks.

The new format is b0lox, it's a major turn off. Why fix something that wasn't broke. And the word filter has been updated :angry:

Well, i'm pleased to say that the lack of speed is no longer a problem. Still, that just leaves the garish Lego icons and buttons, and godawful pastel blue background.

Quorky, perhaps you should have posted this poll on the main forum for greater exposure. Somehow, I don't think our 30-odd votes in the 'no camp' will have Fubra quaking in their boots.

Ho hum.

I'm still waiting to find a useful change. Is it only cosmetic?

Oh just noticed one. I now have to click twice to subscribe to a post. Probably won't bother then, life short, less emails = less participation in site.

The new design doesn't scale properly for larger resolutions.

The old design was fit-for-purpose - why the change? Is it new software or just a new skin?

There's already a poll on the main forum, I thought I'd post one in Off-Topic for the OT crowd.

Is this a joke?

It looks like I designed it for Gawd's sake.

Personally, I can't see how to access my PM's amd everytime I change pages the borders shrink and I have to manually stretch the page.

Coupled with the God awful fonts and sizing makes it all-in-all very unpleasant.

Doesn't look like the mods are listening though does it?

Maybe Dr Bubb could chart the results! There might be a "top hat" in it somewhere.
