Good thing about old site that there no giant reply box that cover 90% of the screen following you and easier to go to last reply in phone. And cant go to laatest reply . I have to scroll dwn manually to reach to the latest reply. Yes i press that jump to last reply button and its not working, yes i press to latest reply on the forum page. It direct me to the first post regardless.

And its hard to add in word in between in mobile its like the the allignment is off or something.


Dont forget that ovesize switch button keep following you when zoom in . You need to have like magnifier to use in phone. Espicially the screen that is small like mine. Dont let me started about the overlay that is as bright as the sun itself.
Edit: forget to add it eat up the internet qouta because it too longer to load and more stuff to load in and sometimes it jam up my phone and nothing i can do about it except to wait for my phone to perform auto restart(i hate ot when i cant take put batery and insert it back to the phone). The tprture of waiting it to be auto restart is painfull.

The new site:
  1. kills the concept of pages - Yes. Rip new page memes
  2. takes up more RAM and is slower - YES YES
  3. has a shitty search system - Actually it's pretty decent, and I prefer it over the old search system. The devs just have a small annoying bug to fix which I reported not long ago dealing with automatic search loading
  4. has a shitty wiki (that has no search system) - What are you on about? You can search the wiki using the new search
  5. makes it so you can't double post (believe it or not, people double post for reasons other than trolling) - I don't really care much about this one, but they should fix it at least for mafia.
  6. removes BB code such as invisible text - They should bring back invisible text
  7. displays the amount of edits your post has gone through even if someone else has not posted yet - Why is this a bad thing?
  8. makes posting a pain - Posting in mobile is worse than hell, kids
and much more.

I agree that the mobile version of the site is broken to shit since you can't remove the "reply box" if you accidentally press reply and you literally can't see anything. Either post something to remove it or clear cookies. Reloading the page doesn't remove the reply box which is super annoying.

The only reason I use the new site is because of the new search system, which is fairly better in comparison and gave me an easier time finding certain posts (the old one just kind of sorted them randomly for some reason and I never understood why). I'm forced to use it anyway because the old search system is dead and, well, it can't be used anymore. Oh, and tower-quoting is fun, too.

Other than that, the new site takes so fucking long to load (no, it's not my speed connection) and, compared to the old one, which I've been using during 4 years with no issues and almost-instant loads, it's excruciating and a huge hassle to use.

And no more new pages. Yeah, fuck that.

because it allowed us to correct our mistakes with no one else noticing
also why does that look like a mod post

Things I like better on Old Site:
1. Faster
2. Showed PP weighting for scores on user page
3. Has pages so is quicker to look through long forums
4. Easier to look at convert scores on maps
5. Collapsible tabs on user page
6. Recommended difficulty didn’t show converts and gave me my exact SR recommendation

Things I like better on new site:
1. PP score of your play and top 50 scores on the map shown
2. Shows exact SR of songs when you hover (unless it’s a multi-mode mapset and then it’s broken)
3. Addition of the 6th difficulty color for maps 6.75+
4. Shows exact AR, CS, OD, & HP values for a map
5. Achievements separated by mode
6. Exact numbers for replays watched by others

please understand

peppy's dev blog hinted at a new user page, so maybe other things will change too?
i also imagine they'll get to work making the new site more streamlined once lazer gets released

Eventually, we get used to being on OT crack that it has become the norm.

Didn't you hear about the OT!Bar incident? Apparently 2000 barrels of 99% alcohol got washed away in the forum lanes last posting

The beat that I can give it is that it tries to have a mobile site. It's pretty trash though.
