One big issue
In reply to MarceloLI, Oct 4, 2012

In my pro profile, I have e-mail notifications DISABLED except for private messages but the little box underneath a new forum post, is ticket by default..!!!

I don't want to receive messages from DPR every time someone reply in a thread.

I know that I can un-tick the box but it is really annoying to do that every time I'm posting.

You guys new to work a lot fixing all those bugs and bad decisions against the users of this forum.

In my kindle fire is impossible to read the forum, every time I click on a thread or something pops up a new window with advertising form Amazon..!! Annoying..!!

This is not an upgrade this is retrograde.

Sorry but it is the truth.

This is the part of the forum layout that I would change also.  The new forums are oriented by sensor size.  So I like Alejandro's suggestion, essentially like this:

Nikon DSLR Consumer

Nikon DSLR Pro

And I wish you could see more thread headings on the screen at once.

Well, I fully agree with you on this one! The new layout is not even close to the previous one!

Many reasons for not liking this new layout and I am sure you will all point them out.

And how do we reach page 20?!! We have to go through several pages as preeviously you just had to put 20 in the field page and you reached it in one step!

And many more examples like this one where this new layout does not make sense!

But, having said that, they surely have precise reasons why they use this new layout. So, it is hard to understand without knowing these reasons.

I agree, the older layout was not broken...why fix it.

I don't think you have to as I'm not getting any notification with it checked

You guys new to work a lot fixing all those bugs and bad decisions against the users of this forum.

No bad decisions IMO, but the do seem to be aggressively working on bugs.

In my kindle fire is impossible to read the forum, every time I click on a thread or something pops up a new window with advertising form Amazon..!! Annoying..!!

I don't think dpreview can affect the parent company in a way that would get them to change the kindle fire browsing apps

This is not an upgrade this is retrograde.

Disagree

Sorry but it is the truth.

I honestly don't think so

I think the older software may have been responsible for mant/some of the increas in furom crashes in the past. An upgrade seems reasonable. For me Win XP was not broken. In the end, I'm glad I upgraded.  Feel the same about my D70

I post rarely but lurk often. I'm afraid this new forum layout is positively dreadful. Very difficult to read. Ugh!

I have no issues at this stage - however, I do not see myself a"power user" :-).

A change is as good as a holiday.  I think people should just give it a chance and rather provide constructive critique.  DPReview is at least not sitting on their laurels.

Have fun!

Easy to explain this one. It's like MS windows. It needs redesigned from the ground up as the code is aged, but they just constantly tweak it and bloat it so it uses more and more memory and becomes less and less efficient...updates updates updates.

Agreed, I still miss the harmony that existed between the two formats before being divided (D1D2D3 D100D200D300) ... not to mention any FX format is DX too ... but the D1 & D2 are not FX (Welcome to the Nikon FX SLR Talk Forum, the place to discuss Nikon D4, D3, D2, D1 and D600, D800, D700 full-frame digital SLRs.).

And I wish you could see more thread headings on the screen at once.

Maybe, but easy to get used.

Don't dislike it but can't see how I create a new post and have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find 'my threads' etc. Could the short cuts be placed at the top?

Who is the genius that came up with this one?

NO, I do not like the New and Improved dprevies.com.

Hover your mouse over your user name/avatar, to the right of this message window. Both message bookmarks and recent forum activity (was "My threads") are listed there. I'm still getting to know the new interface, but it's good to keep in mind that...

The new forum is full of bugs. Post a response, and you go back to the first post, an in the threaded mode. So you have to change mode, and go to the last page to see your post. Show a photo, and some posts are obscured and unreadable. And so on.
