NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...now you just gave that secret away!



For about 2 weeks we have a problem with the notification links. When I go to my notifications and click on the article link, I get linked to the main page instead of the article. Before 2 weeks I got directly to the article. Why have this been changed? It's very uncomfortable now to check comments on a previous comment, because you need to search the article manually.



I'm having an issue with image uploading. I have 3 images I'm adding to my post. All 3 are under the 500 Kb limit. Upon hitting submit, the screen goes white and nothing appears to happen. I've seen the a couple of times before but wasn't sure it it was just a notwork issue. Opening another tab to check the thread usually proved that the post was published just fine....but not this time.

If I hit the back button, the editor reloads with the content still there. Same problem if I resubmit.

Win 10 latest.
FF latest.

If the issue is the images are simply getting too close to the 500 Kb limit, I can remotely host them.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

I don't know if the length of ongoing threads like the official MS and PS ones for example have been discussed before, but I find it a bit tedious to see the latest heading and then jump to the last page of the thread and work backwards to get to where that particular discussion started my solution would be to divide these threads threads by month so when it appeared on the main page you would see say the official MS thread June edition and so on.

Subscribe to the threads and then access them from your VGC Buddy.  It will take you to the last unread comment.

Small update.

- Sales topics were merged into one "Sales Discussion" and it's now in "Gaming Forum"
- Used to be lots of dead space on mobile to the side, Talon has fixed that.

I think I'm going to need a little more detail - or, at the very least, a screenshot of what your notification list looks like (along with the link it's taking you to)? This sounds like a bug of some sort.

I'm looking into this...

If you click on the "number of new" link in the Hot Topics box on the front page (or, as SpokenTruth recommended, clicking the thread from your Buddy List), you should be taken to the last post you read (not the end of the thread)



Question: How would you feel if we merged Music, Sports and Movie Discussion into one called "Entertainment Discussion".

General, Politics and NSFW would remain separate.

Here's a tiny glimpse at the new front page we're working on. We're thinking of trying to cut down so it's not so much scrolling, we merged Sales topics as that was just an obvious decision but we want feedback on others.

Everyone is welcome to give your thoughts on what Ryuu asked. And yes we have a new front page in development.
