Non-urgent (but annoying) suggestion: Can you make the filters stay put after browsing away and coming back? For example, I always had the News sections sorted by First Post rather than Last Post and while I can still do that with a few clicks, it seems to reset between visits.

@Cyan If you scroll to the bottom of the Forums and click Groups, it lists them without pictures.

The option "Collapse Similar Threads by default" does not seem to work.

When you give a "Like" the "Like" button does not change to "Unlike".
This is normal operation from now on?

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
You can see my preferences below. It should work the same way as before looking at that, but it doesn't:

Seems to be a bug in one of our addons.
I've applied a quick fix for now until the author can update it.
To get the old XF1 behaviour, those first two checkboxes should be unchecked (which is the default)

You can view them by clicking the arrow:

Someone made a suggestion to make it visible by default earlier, I would sort of agree.

Yes I know that, but why is that there in the first place? I thought it was fine seeing them in their entirety by default. Surely, we can have an option to universally display it without clicking the expand arrow?

Some ads don't play nice.

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.

Have you considered doing a 'Support' or 'Help' or so thread prefix? That seems like it might be useful to me since people asking for help threads are fairly common and currently people just seem to be marking them 'ROM Hack' or 'Homebrew' or something not super relevant since that's what the subforums were before and there's not really anything better I guess.

On mobile when pressing on a thread that has new posts, it seems like it doesn't always take me to the new posts, sometimes going to the original post on the first page instead. I tried twice in a row on one thread (in the Switch forum fwiw), first time I went to the original post, then I went back, and second time I went to the new posts.

Not just for that reason, but also in general, please could the "Jump to new" button that exists on the desktop site also be added to the mobile site? There looks to be space for it in the same kind of area to the right of the page numbers. Some links in certain parts of the site (eg. the front page headline links iirc) always take you to the start of the thread rather than the new posts anyway, so it would be really useful to have.

Ignore function is inconsistent. When going into a thread now, I can see most ignored posts and members. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Also have to fix my icon, I guess?

Oh, and now I have to block certain sections again. GROSS

It's hidden in the ⋮ overflow menu, but yeah, it definitely seems like there'd be space for it if the page selector was left-aligned.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • 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

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • 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

  • 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.
