Hello!

For those who know me, you know i've been around for a bit and fro those who don't... um.. i've been around for a bit.

I've recently taken a leave of absence due to, you know, life and such, and since i've come back, the Vine has gone through considerable changes. So tell me y'all, is the Vine better for the changes or worse?

I'm sure that there might have been threads about this already, but i couldn't give a dead Robin at this point. I want to know what YOU think as i see many good and many bad things about it and would like to know your opinions.

It has quite a few bugs at the moment, but assuming they get fixed soon the rest is ok.

@feebadger: I like it. Some aspects are kinda weird but once you get used to it, it's not bad at all :) It DOES take some getting used to though.

*mumbles something gay about it being slightly better again now*

:P

This. Right now I don't like it because I can't make lists on Mozilla Foxfire...As soon as the major(and then later minor) bugs are fixed then this will be okay maybe even good.

The look is clean and nice enough, but I think the forums aren't quite there.

Pretty much this.

The basic functionality of the site - the wiki, has been greatly improved.

A lot of the other functions of the site - the ones that made it unique and a destination site are still pretty buggy.

That said, the tech team has been doing an awesome job implementing fixes - it's only a matter of time before it's the best site of its kind.

It's amazing, outside the mobile site.

I got lost at the beginning but I like the new clean look, it´s just going to take some time to get used to it..

The images upload system has been greatly increased..

@bumpyboo: how do you mumble something gay?

@bumpyboo: does that mean you have do describe everything you do as "gay"

sounds really inconvenient

Not as inconvenient as having to explain your in jokes to strangers. The comment makes perfect sense to the person it was addressed to ;)

@betatesthighlander1: Definitely. And you were right to call me on it, I see how it looks out of context :)

*handshake of peace*

@bumpyboo:

was there ever a point where you mumbled anything latent? or a point where you mumbled anything bicurious?

HAHA! XD I like what you did there.

Oh yes, definitely :P

One think I didn´t liked is that we can´t see anymore the online users, right?

#23 Posted by Betatesthighlander1 (7462 posts) - - Show Bio

@bumpyboo: are....are you being sarcastic right now? i mean, i'm aware that those were some cheeky puns, but i don't think they justify capitalized laughter in a legitimate or sarcastic voice. I mean, if you actually thought it was that funny, thanks for expressing that.

#24 Posted by BumpyBoo (7597 posts) - - Show Bio

@betatesthighlander1: No I learned pretty quickly to never be sarcastic online. It doesn't translate well. The capitalisation was a mix of amusement and surprise :) Genuinely made me chuckle.

@bumpyboo: oh, thanks

*continues to scream something Msub about the removing the quests*

Visual design is nice, but I still like the old one.

This site looks polished and all but it still has its own bugs.

Actually, you can. It says "online" in a small little tag in the top right corner. Its a small one, so it probably won't catch your attention.

I couldn´t find it =/

in the top right corner all I see is my avatar - inbox - A/A (Light/Dark)

I like the new design, it's aesthetically pleasing. It's troublesome to find some of the character forums, but besides that it's great.

#29 Edited by ShootingNova (15194 posts) - - Show Bio

@higorm: No, top right corner of a post. If they are online, it says there.

oh, that´s right, buy I meant the old style which appeared a list with all online users..

#31 Edited by deathbymanga (661 posts) - - Show Bio

my only complaint is that before you could see if your friends were online. but now you can't at all. there isn't even a tab to see if people you follow are on

#32 Posted by ShootingNova (15194 posts) - - Show Bio

@higorm: I thought I saw the follow list some time ago. I'm not sure; ask a mod.

Yeah I´ll probably do that..

Hulk don't like the new design. Ever heard the phrase, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?"

#35 Posted by lykopis (10756 posts) - - Show Bio

1) no more window where I could see friends' status updates

2) no more window where I could see friends'new blogs

3) character limit for wall posts (so much for my rambling, inane gobs of mental verbosity to which I could annoy people

4) image gallery is possessed. POSSESSED

5) I am coping. ;P

Except they were legally obligated to do so.
