Welcome to the new forums!

The new forums are adequate for how they are used.

My biggest gripe with them is that I come here to read the posts, and occasionally post something, not to look at the header art and welcome text. Having to scroll down a screen to get to what I came for makes them much less worth going to. Both could be smaller or overlayed to reduce the fluffy overhead here.

I understand you guys would rather keep what we're all used to, but change can be good!
I think it'd be better to accept this is the forums we're gonna use now as we cannot change back, and focus on how we can make these forums better. :)

(like hoping the grepo smilies will work again)
We can make them better.. by making them look like the old forums lol

Really though.. this beige on beige on beige is boring. Too basic. The Header at the top for the game is too big and pointless since there are no longer menu options at the top..

The layout is too confusing.. i prefer things being more tightly grouped so we dont have to scroll down so far just to see 3 thread titles.

While reading threads I can only see one reply w/o having to scroll further down. The space in between is unnecessary.

Basically just take a screenshot of the old layout and go from there..

And thats as helpful as I am willing to be.

Maybe they can put menu options back up there :)

fix it so people can use forum on mobile. the blue menu bar covers the text box. Then when trying to scroll up or down so I can see 1 maybe 2 lines of text, it is made extra difficult by the pale yellow links for support and apps that are virtually impossible to spot against cream back ground so they keep getting pressed, which takes me away from the thread I'm trying to post on. Its not hard to figure out if the forums are unnecessarily difficult to post on, people won't bother using them.

Likes are not reps. Reps were to show how helpful/knowledgeable someone was so were a good way to gauge if the person was going to be worth taking advice from. We have lost that feature and now have no way to -neg people. In addition to missing the old rep system I don't like some of my previously hidden +rep are now public likes. I think there should be a way to unlike things. Not just to remove the some of the things you made public, but 'cos it's easy to hit like by mistake when scrolling down on mobile so there should be a way to correct accidents.

I'd like to see rules change so animated pictures can be used now.

Guys, I have been granted by the gods of the new Grepolis forum the secret to the access to the activity stream as we knew it with the old forum. Lo and behold! Here is how to see the activity stream:

First, click on that button in the upper right hand corner of the forum, just below the big Grepolis banner:

Then a window will open, click on this:

And ta daaa! Here's your activity stream! :D
 
It doesn't do the same thing. The "What's New" button shows threads where there is an unread message. My solution shows the activity stream as we knew it on the former forum - each new post is shown separately :)
Thanks. Why can't they just ONE button that says "Activity stream" just like the old forums?
 
omg this is awful... I'm totally lost here
Looks like Barbie's new home in Vanilla Paradise.

Hey Inno, this is Grepolis! A War Game, remember? Why do you always need to make things worse?

You'll get used to it. :D I've had no problems navigating now that I've learned how everything is set up.
