The lights are on
Hey everyone, we know you cannot click to the next page of a forum to see the older posts. Rest assured we're going to get this fixed asap.
Also, remember to post bugs you find here: http://www.gameinformer.com/p/bugs.aspx
Another suggestion/request: Can a drop-down box be added so we can jump straight from one forum to another (eg, from General Gaming to Nintendo) without having to go back to the main forums page?
If I may, I have a few suggestions for the forum layout.
As a forum-goer for years now, I've become accustomed to the archetypal forum structure and layout. Boards listed categorically, and the constituent threads organized in a near vertical order. So far on the GI site, I've found it very difficult to enjoy it due to cumbersome navigation due to:
-No "quote" button. It's difficult for people to know who you're addressing.
-Thread listings very clunky. One page has roughly 10 threads on it, all accumulating to about 3 pages worth of space. This makes navigating difficult.
-Drop-down box is needed to jump to forums.
-The site needs more incentive for people to remain active. I've been fluctuating between active and inactive due to a particularly conspicuous lack of things to do/aspire for/complete.
-Needs icons indicating whether or not you replied to that thread; too much is reliant on text, making navigation, again, very difficult and cumbersome.
I agree with Vermanubis.
All of those changes would only make these forums better, IMO.
I would like to suggest a "last page" button to put on the thread when looking at the thread list so one doesn't have to navigate through all the posts of a thread they are flowing to get the latest posts
