Forums - Announcements - The Truck Stop - Website Development Updates - Keyboard navigation, yes or no?

Would you enjoy the forums having keyboard navigation (J/K to move up and down a post)?

I'd like that A LOT!
It would be nice to have
I don't think I'd use it

Hey there VGChartzians,

As some of you might know, there’s some pretty big changes coming ahead for VGC (you can read all about it in Machina’s fine thread) and I’ll have my part to play in those changes.As of right now, I’m working on merging gamrReview back into VGChartz and also doing some forum fixes on the side.

While I’m aware of a good chunk of the forum bugs, there’s bound to be some I have missed or forgotten about so the purpose of this thread is to:

1) Allow users to report bugs they’ve experienced or suggest new features they think could improve the forums. Of course, priority will be given to bugs over new features.

2) Keep everyone posted on the latest fixes and additions made to the site.

A little disclaimer before I go further: I’ll be working on the site during my free time which means I have a limited number of hours to dedicate to the project each week. Also, the merge between garmReview and VGChartz is Brett’s main priority so I’m going to work mostly on that front at first which means the forums fixes might be coming out slowly initially but please be patient and know they are coming!

In the next post, I’ll keep a list of things fixed, known bugs and requested features to keep everyone updated.

Ghosts posts in some threads have been removed. Tell me if there's other threads like this
