Things you miss from the old CD


#1

What do you miss about the old CD that isn’t featured on Discourse?


Things you like about the new CD
#2

I really liked signatures. They were actually the main method by which I remembered who was who.


#3

Being able to see a persons team number right next to their name…


#4

Reputations, I was elated when mine crossed the 11 bar threshold


#5

That and team association…

I liked being able to see what subteam someone was on, what team they were from, and what their location is


#6

And then that linking to TBA…


#7

Not entirely sure if it’s accurate or not, but it feels like navigation is a bit slower now. Lots of relatively short delays.


#8

The fun quotes at the top of the page


#9

Yeah- vBullletin (perhaps due to its age) ran really quickly and seemed to have much less in the way of load times or animations.


#10

I miss the style of the front page, along with reputation. Always felt nice getting rep by other member on my posts


#12

I was bummed when i just saw that. And that all the reputation disappeared. Reputation kinda helped me consider who was a reliable source. :confused: Also it won’t let me upload my profile pic. :frowning:

EDIT
Just noticed when you reply to someone in a thread it doesn’t “Quote” the post you’re referring too. :frowning:


#14

Signatures, Team numbers next to names (With TBA Linking), WhoAmI pictures, and the 47 favicon.

Oh I really hate this “Body is too similar to what you recently posted” nonsense


#15

Agree, although I understand the old PHP/Web 1.0 style may have been intimidating to new users, I mostly preferred the density of information and quick load times of the previous style. I wonder if we can find some sort of old-style theme to address some of these issues.


#16

A gray/orange theme


#17

Try highlighting the text you want to quote and then click “quote”.


#18

You can highlight the text you want to quote and click the “Quote” popup - a little less convenient than other options I’ve seen, like a simple “Quote” button in that area where they have the like button and such


#19

@indubitably While not exactly the same, the dark theme option (found in the Interface settings) makes the site feel a lot more like “Chief Delphi” to me.

To stay on topic, I miss the density of information. Everything feels more spread out and blank now.


#20

My major hurdle is that the front page defaults to “Latest” when “Categories” would be a lot more approachable (and like the old CD.) I changed it in preferences, but it might be good default.


#21

I honestly wasn’t a big fan of reputation. However, I don’t like that my user button is invisible. Possibly just a profile pic issue.
