    I liked having comments oldest to newest. That makes more sense to me, because you don`t start reading from the back. We`re not Japanese!

    The comments still suck. It was better the way it was before, and it was easier to follow. Now you have scroll through pages to get to the first posts and read them BACKWARDS. Seriously, no one else (that has a brain) does this. MySpace blogs, ANY blogs, will show the first comments first, not the most recent ones.

    This is just annoying and I don`t read them anymore.

    Normally I`d say newest-to-oldest makes no difference to me, but I just gotta take exception for the case of game walkthroughs. Sometimes you just need an early hint and you don`t want to read step 28 when you`re still stuck in the room with only a paperclip, an onion and three spanish midgets.

    Thanks Fancy. That really was one thing that bothered me about the new comment system. The other stuff, I can adjust to(and probably everyone else), but the way it was with just the 5 comments on her and NOT the official page was annoying. Thank you, again. :-) ...do the smileys work again?

    For what it`s worth, I really, really don`t like having to read the last comments first. It doesn`t do much good, other than making first posts pointless, which banning has already done. Just an opinion.

    the new comments system would make sense if ALL comments were about the link. but they aren`t. sometimes people start having arguments and/or conversations in the comments section and you have to start from the last page and read backwards to know what the heck is going on. also in the case where some have to span two comments in the case of 1000+ characters.

    nomotivatn: you`re supposed to give the onion to the midgets. they all start fighting over it and in the midst of battle, you lash all their legs together using the paperclip. then use the result as a sort of flail.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Dude, I know that game. What you do is smash the onion on the smallest midgets head. Then when they all start crying, poke their eyes out with the paperclip. After they are all blinded, they will run around, just dodge them until the biggest one drops the key.

    I had the same thought as duckinfuh, in that in this particular case it`s better to arrange the comments from the oldest to the newest because we do respond to one another`s comments.

    and who really reads youtube comments anyway?

    If the posts are backwards, then the page numbers have gotta be backwards too. Or else I`ll have NO idea which page I left off on if I`m in the middle of a discussion. It was page 4 last night, but it could very well be page 9 this morning.

    BUT OH MY GOD YAY FOR HAVING THE FIRST 5 IN THE REGULAR COMMENTS SECTION!

Stop complaining, its been said 3. More improvements are coming, fancy just tried something, nothing wrong with trial and error. The new things coming make up for this no doubt

    TS, I love you dearly. Fancylad banning you was harsh.

    But if typing like a fecking epileptic chimp hammering away on the keyboard were against the rules, I would have banned you myself long ago. And then called the FBI.

    I don`t have that problem Dainty, but there certainly are some bugs in the system (example- try clicking on murrymalty`s profile, via his name- does everyone get "Account Closed"?)

    Don`t worry, I`m sure as Fancylad throws more bananas at his pet developers, these little kinks will get ironed out...

    a.k.a the site is laggy due to updates

    sorry for saying the same thing as some other people but I dont much care for the comment system either. It was easier to read before, at least for me. Just my humble opinion :) oh and YAY FOR CHATROOM!!

    Hey Fancy, just a note- it`s not just Murry`s profile (he was just one I picked at random from this page), but it`s happened to a lot of users- most probably haven`t noticed it yet.

    Yeah, I find it kind of funny how so many people say we ALL have a problem with the comments system... It`s a bit to get used to, but now the most recent comments will be read/replied to as well, meaning that if you don`t comment on a link until a day after, you`re not just ignored.

    I agree, Kasu-Chan. I was one of the most outspoken opponents of the new system when it first came out, but now I kinda like it (sure some kinks need ironed out, but the format works). Personally, I think it encourages people to post as everyone has a chance for their comment to be read. A lot of users were disinclined to comment on older threads because no-one would ever read them. I think the new format fixes that. Just my opinion though.

    Anything new will take time to settle in, we can`t say that this is a bad system yet, just users were used to the old way and thats what they know. Sometimes change can be shocking, but in the end it can be great

    VOTE! Fancylad, use your new voting widget! The voice of the IAB community demands to be heard!

    This is a democracy after all. Albeit, a democracy ruled over by a autocratic demagogue who usurped the previous pretender to the throne (what ever DID happen to Buddy by the way? And what are those muffled noises coming from the basement at IAB HQ?), but a democracy nonetheless!

    Vox Populi!

    Davy, the problem I have with it is the page numbering.

    I can`t just know what page I was on before, or what page I had a discussion with someone before, I have to search for it.

    That, and the fact that if we`re doing it like this (Youtube way) then we might as well be able to quote and reply to each other. With an actual quote button.

    Opie, once again, its change. Think about it, this is a little more organized...and first posters dont get there glory this way. First comments first, but as more come in they move down, and late users still are noticed. As for quoting, just use copy and past like we always have. And for remembering where you posted, well its not that difficult, and with the chat on its way actually talking to eachother on the forums wont be as used

    Hey, maybe you can let each person decide how they want to see the comments.
    For example, at the top of the page you can provide the choices "Old Comment System" and "New Comment System". That way every person can choose what they prefer and be happy.

    For non-logged in people, you can show the comment system however you want.

    I know this may seem like a lot to ask for (Sorry...) but don`t you want everyone to be happy? * hopeful smile *

    Nerd, I think if Fancy`s writing down bugs and things he`ll change, and going out of his way to design the site like we want it, why would I settle for something that I might not be 100% behind?

    I know it`s change. I`ve been wanting change on IAB for a long time. And we are still in the midst of change, I`m just giving my two cents.

    ^^ Snivellus, "at the top of the page you can provide the choices "Old Comment System" and "New Comment System". That way every person can choose what they prefer and be happy."

    That is a splendid idea, and not as difficult to facilitate as you might think.

    Remember there was a discussion some time ago about changing the site`s colour scheme (to a resounding "NO" from the masses) and one voice on the forums (sorry, can`t remember who) spoke up with the wonderful idea of making it user-controlled, so they could choose any colour scheme, or stick with "IAB Classic". The same could be done for comments.

    Keep coming with suggestions, pet peeves, ideas, and bugs (try to keep it helpful/constructive rather than b*tch for the sake of it!), fellow IABers. This is the chance for your voice to be heard, Fancy said he will be checking this thread and writing things down!

    Please explain how listing the comments from "Newest-to-oldest" makes sense? Considering that newer comments have a tendency to be a response to older ones, and how rediculously irritating it is to read up to down then go back up again, I hardly see where this form "makes sense." And there`s no such thing as "more better" and even if there was, I wouldn`t call the changes so far "better" anyway.

    Yeah I`m in a pissy mood. F off.

    Wow, thanks guys. (I feel special now. XD)

    Anyway, since davymid asked us to keep coming up with suggestions, I do have one. However, it is not comment related in any way.

    Well, you know how at the top of the page there are the little tabs (Latest, Popular, Most Bookmarked, etc.)?
    I think it would be good to add "Archive". So, you can write dates (March 1st, March 2nd, etc.) and put in all the posts that were up that day.
    That way, a person that misses a day, a week, or even a month can go to Archive and see what they missed instead of going to page 28 and having to refresh in case a new post pushed a post from the bottom of the last page to the top of the next page.

    I have had to do this SEVERAL times now and I find it to be annoying.

    OK, don`t quote me on this, because it`s in the talks stage, but I just spoke to my developer and we`re coming to a solution where people who are fans of the old forums and people who are fans of the new forums will both be happy. it`s a high priority situation. there, i`ve said too much already, but when it happens, we`ll never have to have the "i like the old forums" conversation again.

    You mean when I type on this laptop ultra fast and don`t use Word?

    Yeah.

    And yes, the old OF`s turned in to spammiong grounds.

    hehenerd, you were banned too?

    I woudn`t realy called it harsh...banning me for life would be harsh. But yeah...things...got out of hand,. That=`s what happenes when you are on a old forum which normally isn`t posted on...or seems like it`s nor watched on a regular basis.

    So, it was well deserved.

    So as I said, a "You are benned/temperorilly suspednded" email would be nice, which would include telling us for how long.

    Can`t wait to see your solution Fancylad.
