Personally, looks alright (But needs a little more texture, something to look similar to the ue4 editor would be pretty cool.) but it seems there were fixes to something that wasn’t broken, in turn breaking it.
In the old forum, there were things that needed improvements and fixes and I’m guessing that rather than work on it with the old forum software they wanted to just switch to a new platform. I think though that many of the issues that people have with the new forums are just the big change rather than things actually being worse, it’s always annoying to try and get used to something new.
The notification feature is noticeable broken. The only reason I know this thread exists is because I receive an email for each reply to it. I’ve never visited this thread until now, all my notification settings are set to ‘Never’ and I’ve unsubscribed to this thread (in the received email) several times despite not being subscribed (tracking it) to it on the forums. I’ve contacted Epic support directly and they are “looking into it”.
Agreed. This new format is absolutely horrible. It looks like someone started the website thinking it was for an iPad app or something.
Please fix the navigation. The old format was way better; should have just done a re-skin and re-optimization.
Also, I can’t even edit my old posts!!! This means that all my marketplace asset forum posts are absolutely useless at this point. R.I.P. Unreal Forums.
Things been fixed as far as functionality goes. I still don’t think this is as effective as the old site for forums, but this looks like where it’s going to stay. Glad I’m at least able to modify my old posts again.
