      You will also notice that the reply nesting has been reduced to only one-level, and the main reply box has been moved to the bottom of the page...

      No, that was always the case. We're looking at that as well. In fact, we're getting a bunch of good info just based on this thread. Thanks Mark.

      I'm omessiaho.  Its cool that you are thanking me for my input now instead of being glib or calling it "hostility".  Its always neat when biases are so clearly shown.  Imagine how much better our relationship (and the forum) could have been if you just got over the name.

        Omessiaho ? I know I speak for much of the forum when I state the obvious:

        -you've been spending excessive amounts of your time during the past months criticizing and whining about why you don't like the ESP forum, yet you stay here....

        deal with it lol

      Cool to see the quotes and the reply box laying low. I had always seen the nesting as an alternative to quoting. Letting you reply inside a post versus making a new post. Its almost works like facebook where you reply to someone's post, and clicking on the comments to open them up. Now lets add a black theme ala the page header to the honey do list!

    • exhibit-sbt

      I am in favor of a black theme that doesn't fade out the forum page directory at the top..   

      Agreed with killing approved members bs.   It was a good idea on paper, but obviously fails in execution.   

      Make a goddam sticky thread for noobs with help and q&a and delete the 'conduct thread'.  Its not welcoming in the slightest. 

      The proper smiles actually are important.   I want to type :lol and it mean something.

      I don't think the forum can really be fixed at this point but here's what I would do if I was in charge.

      1) Get rid of "read more".

      2) Kill nesting.

      3) Fix the bugs!

      4) Make a functional mobile version.

      5) Fix the goddamn images on the main page already!

      6) Unban me.

      7) Hire a real developer to make a completely new forum without us having to register again.

      8) Stop posting here, the "community building" is pandering and its kinda cringy.  You have your blog but never use it.

      9) Crate a clear set of rules that you expect people to follow and then get rid of them.  We aren't monsters and the mod is capable of keeping things in check

      10) Admit you fucked up.  I know this would probably be the hardest but I bet it would earn back a lot of good will.  Its worked for countless politicians and basketball players.

      Basically, I was a member of these boards since 2002. That's 12 years. Jeff K you have the nerve to tell someone like RK that you're looking forward not backwards? The forum has been COMPLETELY RUINED and you have successfully drove pretty much all the traffic it once had away with this ridiculous crap. Do as RK says and implement the system as it was, it wasn't perfect but then what is? This board is far from it. Implement the old board and just add a 'like' feature and you're good to go, some members may even start to come back

      I 2nd omess' motion

       

      i can't even post my new gear day pics even after uploading them to this system or post links to them. What a pile of bullshit

       

      ESP has lost a customer in me, and it purely down the boards. I'll stick to Suhr and James Tyler for my new customshop quality guitars going forwards, which are far superior to anything ESP could possibly put out, and I have 5 ESPs. 2 will go on sale shortly and I will never seek to buy another one again.

      I can only get the author's name in the first quote on multiple quoting.

      The reply button makes no sense now, so refraining to use it is the best idea in order to keep the correct line of time from the top to the bottom. It would be wise to get rid of it if possible in case that anyone who does not know how to use a forum doesn't mess the line. Also I made a big post but I accidentaly clicked delete and without asking for confirmation the post was gone so there's that. Plus the edit and delete post options sometimes won't show so you have to refresh the page to fix this.

      Honestly, switching to ezboard or the like would have instantly made the forum much more functional. I imagine it'd be much less of a hassle to do this than fixing this thing, but whatevs.

      Ugh, this duplicates after the ...read more.

      1. nested quoting doesn't work right (only puts the last author)

      2. no multiple quoting yet?

      3. where is dynamically linked original posts? like, I want to click a thing on the quoted post to view the original post

      As most of you may know, we're at the Summer NAMM show at the moment, which starts tomorrow... feel free to drop by and say hi if you're in Nashville (public day is Sat Jul 19). After the show, we'll start to take a look at some more changes to the forums. It might be time to make some larger changes than we'd initially planned. Stay tuned. :)

      How are the Suhr and Tyler forums?

      Having the OP comment show up at the top is confusing at fuck.  I clicked page 3, the OP pops up, there's nothing to differentiate between it and stuff you post after it.
