Since there's been a lot of people saying they dislike it and not as many saying they do, I just want to say I actually really like the new prefix-based instead of subforum-based layout of the main console forums, I find it so much easier to keep up with everything in the DS and Vita forums (the two I currently try to keep up with) now that I don't need to check like 5 places each to see all the new updates. Maybe its worse with the more active forums like 3DS and Switch which I only occasionally check, but for me I find it quite nice.

(this isn't targeted at anyone or anything, just wanted to say my thoughts on it)

If they want to lump older systems or platforms with a fairly inactive community into one forum? That's fine. Sifting through current platforms is such a mess, though.

Here's a weird bug: when adding screenshots to a review, I imported a heap of shots, but clicking the delete button on the top right of the thumbnail adds the screenshot to the review as a full-sized image rather than actually removing the thumbnail from the selector.

EDIT:

Main Review Content > Styles > Block Styles > Grey Box styling shows whilst editing, but not when you preview it...

DS is an old platform, but there are still people working on new projects even now. I strongly disagree that the consolidated forum is better. There used to be many different subcategories: game discussion, translation/hacking projects, hardware/modding, emulation, homebrew, etc. It's really hard to navigate now with all these lumped together under one giant forum. I know the rationale was to "increase engagement," but in reality there's not necessarily much overlap in interests in the different aspects, even if they're all related to DS.

The filter tags in theory should help, but they're vague and prone to user mislabels. 'Hacking' and 'Translation' and 'ROM Hack' seem to be used interchangeably. 'Gaming' instead of game discussions, bring up a whole bunch of help threads. In fact, 'Gaming', 'Misc', 'Hardware', 'Hacking', 'Homebrew', etc are all filled with people seeking technical support.

It's hard to pick out the project announcements and actual discussion threads from all these.

On top of that, each of these subcategories used to have their own pinned threads, but many of them are lost to the depths now. Some of the threads I referenced a lot in the past include pinned threads of recommended games in the game discussion subcategory, and pinned threads of translation resources and on-going translation projects in the translation subcategory, and these are just gone now. I don't know why it's only the 'Homebrew' and 'Hacking' topics that get sticky priority, when there's so much more to the NDS platform.

It's making the browsing experience rather unpleasant.

Also a HUGE annoyance is that when the bottom banner ad refreshes, it gets rid of the on screen keyboard. You have to then click on the text field again to bring the keyboard back up. It has happened 4 times just typing this message.
Yes. This happens to me too sometimes, really annoying. I guess the ad refresh is somehow stealing the focus. If I press the x to hide the ad though it seems to work, at least those times I've tried.

I wanted to talk about a problem that arose days ago: after exceeding 10,000 views in this thread did not receive the 25xp as it is written in XP and Leveling Up.
A similar thing happened to me on my birthday(a month ago),i had not received the 10xp as written above and i had lost more than 30xp after the renewal of the site,but i had not opened any threads and received likes during the temporary mode,because there was a warning that anything posted during this mode was being deleted,has anyone had a similar problem to mine?

Note:i visit the site daily to read the news, the various notifications etc ...,from my smartphone(Galaxy Note 9 Android 10).

I'm trying to update a save file I posted for Metroid Dread earlier this week with a newly completed one on Normal mode, but for some weird reason the Editor refuses to take my .ZIP file. It only wants images and video files for the Attachments. If I try to force it to upload the ZIP, it says it doesn't recognize it as a valid format.

That is nothing new. It was like this before the upgrade as well.
I'll give you a like for your message. The 1XP should make the level go up.

Edit: Okay, this is strange. Never seen this before: "Level up in -1XP"

I'm not sure if this is a bug with the new gbatemp or with my account, but I can't seem to post blogs. there's only the save option.
