      Don't like it personally in comparison to old forum. I miss/can't find "Activity" and "New posts" pages. Also miss the Subscriptions page.
      Save changes in profile settings doesn't work for me. Click doesn't trigger anything.

        Some words about new forum. It's not bad. Need time to get used to it. It should be possible upload audio files for example: WAV. I can upload picks or videos but can't audio files. It's a bit annoying especially on Sounds and Music forum. One more thing. On the UT Game Feedback please add sub-forum "Weapons Balance". It's very important and currently every posts and threads about weapons balance are in mess and hard to find it. These infos should be in one place, where we can add some ideas, stats, discuss etc. Please do it.

          How exactly is it not better? Keep in mind that it is made by vBulletin devs in the first place, it basically has all the good stuff from vBulletin plus more good stuff. It also doesn't have the wealth of security issues that vBulletin has.

          The only valid argument I've seen so far for not using Xenforo over vBulletin for these forums is the point that Lynx_ made:

          It would just be a large undertaking to change everything and fix login integration.

            There are no plans for change. We'll just be working on making this a much better experience. Upgrading was just the first step.

              This is also something I would like as that is by far my "most visited page".

              On the positive side, the bloody "nospacewhenreplyingtopostinchromebug" is now gone.

                That drove me nuts!

                Also, I made the forums wider so that annoyance is gone too.

                  Is anyone else getting this? Could you get me a screenshot of what you're trying to do?

                    There was a link to "New Posts" on the main page and also another link to an activity feed.

                    I think this link is replicating the New Posts link if it works for others: https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournament/forums/search?searchJSON={"date":"lastVisit"}

                      There was a link b4 called "new posts" that would list the most recent post on the forums that is missing since the upgrade. I forget how the "activity feed" differed from that. I'm not sure what's going on with the profile and subscription stuff as it seems to work for me.

                        I was actually talking about the saving changes in profile thing. I'm painfully aware of the new posts button missing

                          The 10 chars limit is somehow annoying ...I know why you implemented it but sometimes it's not useful.

                          And the Quotes should get a darker background or a frame so we can see them faster and don't mix them up with the normal posts.

                          Is it so when you hit the thread title that you get always to the newest post? This can be annoying as hell when you have to scroll up or go pages back to read the original post. A simple marker behind the shown nickname of the last poster (like in the old forum) should be enough to go to the newest one. But maybe a tad bigger so we can hit it better on our mobile devices.

                          Oh and get better smilies those shipped with the original forum software look stupid.

                          Ah because of smilies ... a suggestion. On UT99.org we implemented the Editor interface icons as additional smilies for tutorials.
                          Maybe this could be useful here as well. To explain stuff and so.

                            Well, it's, interesting...

                            Very very minor gripe but since it's logo related I would like to mention that the tournament is slightly higher and smaller than "unreal" and I'm never going to be able to unsee it :P

                              Omg. Well, the new forum (and the style) has some advantages, but boy it's not intuitive in various cases, it is bugged (like "dashboard" only shoes the "last activity" feature) and the there are things like the new WYSIWYG editor where you can only apply text formats if you use the full styled editor, you can just use the "source" view and apply the formattings with the buttons. The buttons are disabled when choosing the "source" view.

                              And what I also miss is the "Full site" cookies based preference on mobile platforms to switch from mobile view to full site (the same as on desktops). You can request the full site on some browsers, but that's not the same.

                              Where can I manage my attachments ...

                              Btw. for anyone missing the "new posts" / "Activity" page:
                              You can find the new latest activity stream under the dashboad, which isn't a link you can press on the main page. Not sure how I redirect to that page. You can also find the "latest activity" button in every thread on the top bar
                              https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtour...rums/dashboard


                              Overall, a forum update is the right step. And approach a more fluid forum is way to go. But so many features are either removed or disabled.


                              Edit:
                              The dashboard latest activity doesn't seem to update.

                              Also, why is "Show signatures" default to off when I had it on, and it is default to on for non-registered users...

                              Edit 2:
                              Seems like "Friends" and alike is totally missing. Additionally a notification about a friends request is now gone (without actually denying or accepting it, not even sure if you opened the specific page).

                              Repying to private messages cannot be done with quoting previous text. You need to copy-paste text and reply to specific paragraphs manually (granted, you needed to split quoted text previous as well, but you had the actual "bbcoded" text).

                              Browsing pages with the new "non-loading" page-switching isn't very practical. The animation is just too slow (if not even useless) and it even scroll on browser-back.

                                Current setup is very confusing to me. There's nothing to click for "new posts" and my own profile isn't showing half of what it did before.

                                Also, my signature is missing from my posts.
