    The RPS Feedback Thread

    Tell me what you like or dislike about RPS. You don't have to be nice, but you don't have to be rude, either.

    The words are good! Very good, actually.

    The good:
    Excellent writing
    Sharp wit
    Regular, timely updates
    Focus on PC gaming, which is clearly the only thing that matters.

    The bad:
    If I allowed 1/10th the number of typos you gents produce on a daily basis to slip through in my own work, I'd be literally (and by that, I mean <em>figuratively</em>) crucified. So... jealousy, basically. I'm jealous of you, and that makes your site slightly worse. Maybe I'll be fixed in an upcoming patch.

    It would be nice if the RPS logo lead to the website's homepage, like at the old forum.

    Yes, I hate it when forums make it hard to get to the parent site. Your command is my wish.

    @Spectre-7 I'll wager RPS has fewer typos than the bally BBC.

    Is this the correct thread to kindly request that my postcount is decreased to -1, so I can feel special in a world of 0-post dudes and dudettes?

    As long as we're making requests, I'd like a second 0 by my post count. Just always wanted to be a double-0.

    I second praise for the words. The words are indeed good. Also, it seems to me that you guys have been engaging in the comments more recently, and I enjoy that too.

    So my niggle is only really a request for MORE WORDS or rather more of a particular type of collection of words. Specifically, the conversations you guys occasionally have among yourselves about a game and type up. I find the disputations and agreements interesting, and they are often really funny to read. I know it must require a big investment of time to all play the same game, and then all spend time contributing to what will be just one post, so I totally understand they might just not be practicable to do more of. But as a reader I do especially value them.

    'fanks!

    Also, more Horace the Endless Bear lest he become vengeful.

    Firstly, thanks for replacing that horrid old forum with a proper one. BUT! Why did I just have to register again when I already had a RPS username and login? Surely it must be possible to hook up the vBulletin authentication to the Wordpest accounts all of us already had? That'd also be quite convenient for having the same login names on comments and forum (you know, in case one of us needs to be reprimanded or so).

    Also, links are broken. If you're not allowing them, fine, but then why is there a little make-a-link icon in the rich text editor? That's just teasing.

    The post count not working is probably a running gag now.

    Theres nothing I dislike. That don't mean I like everything,.. I am neutral to a lot of things.

    I am neutral to the website (seems) using ajax to load comments. If thats means comments will not be indexed by google ... I am neutral to that. But if some day I forget the name of a game, but only remember some comment, and try to find that comment, and since are not indexed in google, I can't find that game. Then it will not like that. But I have to admit that is a rare occurence, and I can stilll ask about such game in this forum. All in all, I suppose is a tradeoff.

    @Ezhar

    BBCode links don't work, but good old <a href='http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html-markup-20110525/a.html#a'>HTML anchors</a> work just fine.

    I prefer the old forum. Change is bad, bad I say!

    More productively, I'm not sure that RPS has the volume to sustain discussions divided in this fashion, although I appreciate that you've hardly gone nuts with the sub-fora.

    So has the old forum simply vanished? Quite a lot of good, and ongoing, threads there, and nary an announcement that this migration (is that the right word?) was taking place.

    Also, I can't get at the comments on any of the articles. This isn't good.

    There was an announcement, but I agree it's a shame that the old forum is simply gone.

    You can find the old forum at <a>http://rockpapershotgun.com/rpsforum/</a>

    I have a couple of issues with the forum:
    <ul><li> No BBCode. Why!? Many people know how to use BBCode as it's used in pretty much every forum ever, and not allowing them to use it can only cause confusion. In my opinion, the choice should be between either BBCode and HTML, or just BBCode on its own. In fact, BBCode being off means quoting, as can bee seen above in this post, doesn't work.

    <li> No WYSIWYG editor. This goes hand in hand with my previous point shouldn't be that hard to implement, given that there's undoubtedly umpteen mods for it anyway.

    <li> No avatars. What was wrong with gravatars? There's even <a href = "http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=262196&highlight=gravatar">a mod for VBulletin</a> to make it happen.

    <li> The comments not working. But I know you're on to that already.</ul>
    Apart from that... Pretty damned good! Should be a much nicer board in the long term than the old one. Good job!

    I love the site and its articles so I thought I might as well join the forums. It's good to see a site focussed on PC gaming, you give attention to less well known indie games as well as AAA titles. Keep up the good work!

    Teething problems aside I quite like the colours.
