So far I'm not a fan of the new board. I like going up to the top and jumping right to a topic, not backtracking to one. KISS comes to mind. Maybe once I get used to it, like I did with playing GR, it'll be okay. Old dog, new tricks? New wine, old bag?

I do think the smileys are cool.

If you want you can use html too.

There are a LOT of things from a mod side of this software that I like much better than the old.

From the user side its tons better IMHO.

From the list of posts you can click on the name of the last poster and it will take you to the most recent post instead of clicking on the the topic name and going to the first post

Oh, and mods or someone can give you a title, like "administrator" or "chief spambot"

Glad to hear it Mark! They really listen to us sometimes then?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I'll (grudgingly!) concede a little bit though: some features are alright. The poll option is pretty cool. And the reworked PMs could be alright once I get used to them. The ability to have a "group PM" is quite good. Although they got rid of our ranks, they did keep our number of posts, so that's kinda the same thing.

But the navigation definately needs to be made easier, and I only just learned how to do all the stuff in my posts that I wanted, eg insert hyperlinks, change font colour etc. Now I'll have to figure it out all over again!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I've changed my mind. I _really, really, _really__ don't like these new forums. You can't even navigate between forums easily!!

I do not mind the reply function being in a seperate window.
I hate the navigation.
I like the smiley funtion better.
I don't like that some troops lost their threads, but hey, 20 years ago, threads meant clothes, so I can adapt.
I like that yagrandma got muzzled.
I don't like that I don't have goals anymore, like trying to get past lonely postman.
I like the 2004 NSX.
I don't like going to my profile and making changes and then can't find a direct way back to the GR forum.
I like dark chocolate.
I like the MG3.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Well, kinda, but not really! I'd already found that bit, which is a decent enough way to navigate, but it unfortunately doesn't appear at the top of all the screens (eg it's not at the top of "My Preferences"). Which means I have to go back to the main forums page, scroll through all the Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell etc forum links to find the GR forum links... Why can't we set it to always have that Ghost Recon navigation button at the top? Maybe make it a setting in the user profiles, to allow you to select which forums you want the navigation links to at the top?

That way, the Rainbow Six crowd can set that, we can set GR etc and everyone has the navigation they want...

Or am I just expecting too much functionality here?!? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
