This New Gamespot is simply awkward and confusing.

Interesting update. Although, as others have expressed, I hate having to scroll up to go back to the board. Also, a visual marker to indicate when new posts have been made in threads I've viewed would be nifty.

I want to be able to see my previous forum posts and how many responses there have been since I last viewed.

I was able to access my previous posts on this new site design by looking at my posting history.You can;t access any posts you made in the last day or two before this site design went live.

It's nowhere near the old system, though. I don't want to leave the site but I might if they make it this difficult.

Don't forget why you here in the first place. It not about you, it about Playstation 4.

It was extremely difficult to log in, and the forum outlay is very hard to follow. Why couldn't they update it but leave the look the same? You know, update behind the scenes stuff only?

You take it to nearest president and trickle down theory from there. Make sure to visit embassy if anything as well.

@freedomfreak: Posting from the mobile version now. You're right, it is nice. Loads quickly and is easy to read.

I can see why the desktop site looks the way it does. Definitely a focus on responsive design, just not executed perfectly for desktop yet in my opinion.

My favorite features are the mobile version, and the following two links:

Those are brilliant additions, and I love them both dearly.

I've found zooming in to about 110% helps me with reading through the thread names and the posts in threads. It isn't a great solution but it's better than the normal site view for me.

How do I set it so the most recent posts are on the first page when I open a topic instead of the last? Can't find any tool options to do so. Probably staring me in the face but I am sick of looking, it's cutting into my gaming time. ;)

Well, I hope things simmer down soon here's my checklist for the techs staff.

1. Takes forever to load the site.

2. Spoilers are now revealed. HTML issue

2.5. Fix the HTML, images don't appear when using the proper code

3. Cannot access with FireFox

4. Google chrome cannot open the window to choose a profile pic/avy

5. Stacks don't save properly.

6. Add a visual icon to tell us if there's a new post in a thread (like in the old GS, it was a feature I apparently took for granted)

...well that's my checklist. I hope the staff can get it fixed quickly and painlessly.

I was wondering why I lost almost 1000 posts, and they I realised it was because the AU board was deleted. WTF GameSpot? That's such a lame thing to do. :(

Not as accessible and easy to grasp as the old one ..... the quotations system is better tho.

Also the new SW layout doesn't show numbers of the news posts in a particular thread after viewing it.

There are improvements but if I had to choose, I would pick up the old one, period.

The forum is now a little confusing, i think you guys need to make the Sticky threads in a different color so that we as users can differentiate the Sticky threads from user created Threads.

Another thing is that its a little slow and avatar system not working.
