This one is a biggy, some images didnt auto resize to posting width, see:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/opened-up-my-scph-1200-to-repair-it-i-have-a-question.594377/

In this test, it did work - but some are now full pixel width.

Usability wise this was nice to have in the past.

Two other nitpicks of mine:

1. These profile summary cards on posts are now collapsible and hidden by default. I don't like this change. This is useful info about a user that can be viewed at a glance. It also creates additional padding between the user's post and their signature on shorter posts.

2. The hiding of buttons in submenus for the text editor is a bad decision. I understand you wanted to reduce what felt like clutter, but this is not a solution. This is the same problem Microsoft faced in the 2000s with Office programs. As the number of features increased, they put stuff in lengthy submenus and lists, which only made the UI harder to use. That's why they invented the ribbon UI.
I think the amount of buttons here was fine, though. There's no need to implement a new UI nor collapse options in submenus. Just leave everything out in the open, like in the old editor.
Also, I've looked in every submenu, but I can't find the option to create a bulleted or numbered list. Is the feature gone?

Yup, it's temporarily gone, although I have seen it being mentioned somewhere, but it wasn't clarified well, so that's why it was probably missed.

For now,
Code:
[LIST]
[*]lol
[*]nice
[/LIST]

[LIST=1]
[*]a
[*]b
[/LIST]

Notifications are no longer clearing when I press the notification button. It's not so much of an issue on PC where there's a button to mark all notifs as read, but on mobile you have to click view all, then select all, then mark them as read. It's a lot of work for something that took a click before.

Former staff names on the black theme are the same color as the background, which results in their names being unreadable in threads/chat.

EDIT: Also, when you choose to maximize the chat, it covers alerts/PMs and such until you scroll down so the nav bar jumps to always at the top. ie:

Not urgent. All news posts (not reviews) on the front page have the little fire icon next to them to indicate a highly active thread, no matter how many posts it has

It was limited time only.
Theme customisation should return eventually, but for now the closest we have to it is the black theme.
Awww, too bad, it reminded me of my younger years, when i had my first CD-burner, and was good with an english firm that is not there anymore... those NFO arts, crack intro's... i really am missing the art that came with hacks and keygens.

For items in the Downloads section, those with attached images have those images duplicated as clickable thumbnails at the bottom of the item's page. Seems redundant, and is rather unattractive looking imo.

The drop down menus on the top of the page no longer drop down on hover.

Edit:
Notifications are also no longer clearing when viewed, unless you go to the page the notification is from.

Edit:
I have been asked four times on two devices to enable push notifications as well.

did the option for how notifications are displayed on a tab get removed? I kept it to just showing a number in the title as when it adds that red dot it screws with the shortcut I have to the site by adding the dot there too...is it the end of the world...no...but still and annoyance

@blackb0x @hartleyshc @Titney

1) we have brought back the GBA forum :)

2) we are looking into the possibility of bringing back subforums and allow two browsing modes as you suggested - (browse all threads by prefix, OR browse by subforum like it used to). I can't say for sure it'll be done, but we are looking into it and we're taking this issue seriously, because after all forums are the core of our community. We may also study other possibilities, for the time being we're keeping an open mind.

@Cyan
your permissions should be fixed

@Sono @smileyhead
The editor buttons will be overhauled, this is just something we couldn't do during our prep. It'll be done in the coming days. It's a XF2 standard so we didn't "decide" that. Dont worry :)

@Scarlet that's a user preference, check your settings

Everybody else: thanks for your patience while we continue working out the kinks :)


---

Regarding the affiliate videos:
- the X/close button is back (mistake from & fixed by the ad network)
- the portal video no longer shows (mistake from & fixed by the ad network)
- the user preference "disable affiliate videos" doesn't work yet, we're working on it, should be resolved shortly.

As best I can tell, the user preference for this doesn't actually work.
Assuming its "Alerts pop-up skips mark read" I saw no difference with it disabled or enabled. Is it a different option or is that one broken?
I don't know, someone was saying that in the V8 announcement thread if you have the heart to check out all the comments page... I haven't looked into it myself

Not urgent, suggestion only :

is it possible to list all groups without the pictures ?
a list of title/description only, similar to forum's thread list maybe ? we could list more on the same page.
maybe with an option to switch the view from list <-> thumbnail ?

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
