Would heavily appreciate groups you're not a member of not being in the Recent Content section by default. Just makes sense, doesn't it?

Also echoing my sentiment that I hope I can filter out certain subforums from it soon. Please god I've had enough Current Events.

Anyways...

Seems a little redundant, doesn't it?

Why did we get rid of sub forums? That was such a great way of searching for specific things...

the recent content box will be updated soon
I'll be honest, after using the forums now a couple days...the lack of subforums is truly awful. The site as a whole is a mess to properly browse anymore, I really hope an option is added to bring them back :/
we are investigating solutions, since a lot of people are asking for it. Bear in mind that absolutely nothing is lost, we still have the old board active on the old server, we can pretty much bring back everything the way it was before, anytime we want it. But we are trying to think of solutions that will bring improvement, not just to "go back the way it was before".

I understand the sentiment completely, and having a more refined forum use experience is a good thing, but I personally don't think it was broken the way it was. The subforums there had their own legitimate uses, and there are definitely cases where users may want to use one but not the other. (Someone who wants to participate in a console's forums without delving into the hacks section?)
I'm all for "go back to the way it was" personally. I liked that, and I still think it's a solid setup.

I have already mentioned a potential solution, but it seems like not a lot of people realize the potential of groups yet, so my post went quite much unnoticed.


The gist is that I think that the change is much preferable for users who are willing to/can adapt to this change, and "powerusers" who can make use of most features the forum software offers.

The problem is the sudden change from one system to an other, and it's completely understandable that a lot of people are upset because they are heavily confused.

I suggested a temporary or permanent transition period, where "sub-subforums" act like just now clicking on the subforum itself, except a tag combinatory filter would be applied before being redirected back to the subforum.

This however requires a new feature to be implemented: tag combinatorics.
Currently I can't find a way to search threads by using AND and/or OR operators on tags, meaning that this change is actually a downgrade, despite its list of pros over traditional "sub-subforums".

Edit: grammar
Also feedback: edit reason textbox is missing.

Hi, not sure if this has been reported already but, in mobile, when it turns to automatic dark mode, the page numbers and arrows are VERY hard to see, they're barely visible.

I'm using Chrome on Android 10, Samsung S10e

The alert badge is repeated on the hamburger menu button on mobile, which is pretty redundant in my opinion.

You'd be surprised, but it's actually not that redundant.

I don't remember how I managed to do it, but I managed to once desynchronize the two numbers, so it seems like the two are slightly independent of eachother.

On mobile I have two alerts that are not in the alert bell button but in the other side and I don't know what the heck they mean or now to make that red two next to the G in GBAtemp V8 go away.

something odd happened yesterday. I don't know if it's something I did, but I tried to join the "wish you were here" group by @Foxi4 , and the request was sent to my pm box. I tried to allow the request, and it said, "you do not have privileges to access this page" or something to that effect. shouldn't the request have gone to Foxi4?

    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

  • 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

  • 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

    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.
