Oh my, so this turned into a mess.
My point was that I had offered up some constructive criticism in other threads and that I had tried to get over the 'it's new and I don't like change' and I still didn't like it.
I don't like the mandated colour scheme, there needs to be a couple of alternate themes (one of which needs to be black on white)
I don't like the layout
I don't like the search functionality (there doesn't seem to be any) Even when looking for something I posted!
I don't like the way sub folders nest into the parent folder. At all.
I want to read 'open discussion' I don't care about 'Add me'. I can either see all the Add Me posts or I can wade through a sea of rubbish in Open Discussion to get to what I want to read.
I don't like the way it quotes
I don't like that it pulls the 'wrong' name though from the Pixel account
I don't like the lack of PMs
I really don't like the way the emjoys are implemented
I'm not a big fan of the editor either.
It feels like a 1st release that hasn't really be tested by anyone that has had to use it as a message board. There feels like a lot of 'oh look at this cool thing that it does' rather than any 'OK so it does this, this and this and then we've added this other cool stuff.
It's taken me 2 days to reply because I'd missed that this has had replies.
I switched all the notifications off, because I hate being meithered, but the forum is so unfriendly to browse I might have to switch them back on just to follow discussions.
I'm sure that his project is someone's pride and joy and I can understand some reluctance to see it as anything but a resounding success, but it is worse than what it replaced in almost every conceivable way.
abhik66's posts above say it better than I have here, but this feels rushed out before it was ready and whilst being very pretty isn't great to use.
