This is usually on the bottom of your post, but there is no option for me. Can someone please help? I've tried going to incognito window.

Same here. No quote or reply options at bottom of posts. The only way is to hit “reply to topic” at top of page.

I’ve tried to post an image but that’s not working either.

Here we go:

The entire web page layout is off too, it doesn't take up the whole screen anymore but is bunched up in a column.

No edit, no reply/quote, no flag button and the layout has shrunk a little.

Yep, on desktop everything is too compact. Hope it's fixed soon.

I want to add. When I reply a post, the person’s user name isn’t in the text box. I use an iPhone XS Max.

Actually I also cannot past a screenshot or include any picture graphics either.

Yeah, not sure if it's a bug or a new design. GameSpot's web technicians haven't been super awesome in the past..

You know if they wanted to cut down on editing they could have at least limited it to only 5 minutes after the post you can edit it

But yeah if they eliminate thumbs up that's like the death march starting, I remember when joystiq did that and it went downhill quite fast

Yes shit is toxic here but that's not how you fix it, that's a big problem on the internet not just here. What about slashcode self moderation?

Previous forum layout was x1000 better

Everything is super small now on my phone and super squished now on my Desktop.

Oh and not being able to quote or reply to anyone.

Looks like someone did something and things are back to normal. Can we please not have this happen every couple weeks?

Nice that it's back but the layout is still odd though. Just glad I'm able to reply/quote someone again.

We were aware of the issue. It should be resolved now.

Sucks though because the compact forum is still present for me. It looks zoomed out and is kind of distracting.

can you fix the layout issue too. the gamespot recommends and list of forum widgets does not need to take up a third of the screen and eat so much into post content.

edit:

e.g. all that on the right of the post is just literally a waste of space

this is much better for post content and still leaves room for the widgets

The widescreen formatting option is still broken.
