Were you a member of the old site, Stefan? I liked much of the old setup better. The old boards? Definitely more.


Yep I was, membership was on my old account and under another username. I had a few hundred posts to my name, I think around 500 I don't remember.

Really? Guess they layout is ok, but the boards leave a lot to be desired!


It's looking good so far but yeah I agree, forums need some work still.

There are a lot of things that need fixed here. The layout is wonky, the way we're supposed to read the forums is wonky.


The Admin needs to be more involved in the day to day MBs. They also need to be more consistent with enforcement of the TOU/TOS. The quote function needs to be fixed. There should be PM function. The report function needs work, if/when someone needs to report another member &/or post/topic they should be able to explain why and what they are reporting.


I am glad that they finally gave us an 'edit' function. And that they finally posted the topics in order of newest/last post shows first. But there is so much more to do. This site and the MBs should not have been launched as fast as they were. They said it had passed all of their tests yet when launched there were, and still are, many bugs/glitches and problems abound. Since it was and still is in Beta, they shouldn't have closed the old ST.com until this one was up and running a lot better than it is.


I will say that there is potential here, but they need to fix it faster than they have been so far.


 


*Edited to add* when you edit your post you have to fix the original post and restor the paragraph breaks, since the edit function runs it all together.  Also wanted to add that there should be a function where we can choose to stay logged in if wanted.  This being logged out whenever is wonky.  Some get logged out after they log in and go to a forum, others stay logged in until they go to post a reply or a new topic.


Also the 'Notify me when a reply is posted' option should be unchecked unless we really do want to be notified. 


Okie, I'm done for now    ( I just put this emoticon after my but I bet it won't be in the same spot when I hit 'submit' )

Honestly? The layout kind of sucks. The primary design is great, don't get me wrong, but the current implentation is not very user friendly. Reading topics backward? What a strain on the brain! (oooh, rhymey!)


 


Fowler has pretty much covered the basics on this board's lack of functionality. Yes, it's in "beta", but they told us it was ready!

I think the op was referring to the website and not the boards.

Then my thoughts on the website are this, not real easy to navigate. Seems like things are missing. Episode lists are....well....they look screwed up to me. And some of the things in the store...OY

In apperance, they aren't too bad with the first look. The black lettering is easily read agianst the white background. Some of the statements made in some of the articles are not completely true. But I suppose that CBS is stating something that might be true to them or for them.

Maybe I had just gotten to used to the old ST.com and it's layout. But I thought it was pretty easy to navigate and the site Admins would try to answer a question fairly quickly. At least it was that way for me. And that is for the site and not the MBs since I didn't join those until after the mass firing. But for the site itself, I didn't find any problems with getting a reply &/or an answer from the Admins in a timely matter.

For me, I'm not really getting a sense of family or community here, yet. It seems like an open house. Come and visit and spend your money and just ignore the holes in the wall and the leaking plumbing over there. :: shrugs :: Anyway, that is just my opinion and feeling about the site as a whole.

I have never seen a message board with this type of backwards posting order. I've been on some where you could set it that way if you preferred it (I can't think of any reason why you would as it's a total pain), but never was it the default.

That's hardly a productive or helpful or useful response. If it's so bad, why bother coming here ?

My post is a succinct statement of my opinion. I reject your premise that is is not useful. Others are now aware of my point of view.

The issue of my continued presence is twofold. Firstly, it is not easy to give up on a habit I have had for many years now. Secondly, I return in the hope of seeing an improvement to the current disarray within which, amongst other annoyances, individuals are able to create and post under multiple accounts even though it is against the rules.

Fair enough. But how do think your post will help the people who building this board improve it?
All it will do is put them off side IMO.[/quote]
Should I wish to provide feedback to the admin there are other more direct ways of doing so. The opening post states a love for the board with no further expansion. I think that it blows and I do not offer any expansion.

I think the website is okay, but they are a few glitches that need to be fixed. But the boards still need a lot of work.
