    Anyone else think the new logo looks kind of creepy?

    I thought it was the same logo only vectorized.

    When I clicked on topics I viewed I get nothing. This is with Safari on my iPad.

    Working now.

    #103 1 year ago

    This quoting concern is already addressed in other forum designs

    They use the text fading away and a explicit 'click' text to make it clear

    On my iMac, using Safari, I can no longer view Pinside correctly. Here is a photo of how Pinside appears. Any advice?

    On my Galaxy Note 8 phone, Pinside appears correctly.

    #106 1 year ago

    In the Top 100, under Custom Rankings, why is there not an option to filter by manufacturer? There are options to filter by decade, etc, but I don’t see an option to just look ratings for a specific manufacturer only.

    #107 1 year ago

    The numbers on the side aren't working again. The link works correctly but it shows no new messages when there is.

    #108 1 year ago

    After clicking one of my favorite topics with a new post (green circle), when returning to favorite topic list the other topics with unread new posts (green circles) have lost the green circle indicator. I have to navigate out of favorites then back into favorites to get the green indicators back.

    #109 1 year ago

    Nice logo!

    #110 1 year ago

    If no one has mentioned it yet, the favicon icon next to the tab (in chrome at least) is still the older logo.

    Sadly, ever since the changes were made, there's now a thread where Ted is showing his chest hair. I don't come to Pinside for pics of chest hair. I'm using Chrome on a Mac if that makes a difference.

    That’s a bug in Chrome. Not Pinside. Something about how it loads style sheets... more hair.

    It all.looks good and clear on my Droid phone

    #115 1 year ago

    So, If I am looking at "topics marked as favourites", and then click on one of the threads showing there are new posts, and then when I go back to the "Topics marked as favourites", the topics all show as read, I have to reload it with the star icon for the "topics marked as favourites" in order to get the list to show which ones have unread posts again. If that makes any sense.

    Thanks, Dave

    #116 1 year ago

    The large topic title in front of the blue background is no longer using the dots font. Using iPad 3 on the latest supported iOS version.

    Finally, embedded videos. Thank You. This will save me a lot of wasted time! Things are looking great with this update.

    One thing that bugs me is the search feature in marketplace. When I get a game to sell that I havent had in a while, I always go to the marketplace to check the value. I like to check current, and then I switch to archived. But I must enter the name of the game for both of them. Is there any way to make it that if you are searching in the marketplace, that if you switch to archived, its save the game ?

    #119 1 year ago

    One thing that I've noticed (not sure if anyone else has pointed this out - I did a quick skim and didn't see anything), but there's one particular thread that the topics tab keeps telling me has 3 new posts since my last visit. When I click on the green number, it takes me to the latest post, which I already saw several days ago, and there are no new posts since then. When I go back to the topics page (not using the "back" button, but actually clicking on the topics tab to essentially refresh it), instead of the thread greying out to zero new posts, it once again tells me there are three new posts.

    It's only doing this with one thread (for me, at least). Namely, this one: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/walking-dead-le-sound-replacement-v-09

    Are you sure the posts aren't being made by ignored users?

    Do I really want a shortcut to one Pinsider? Header is pretty wide too.

    You don’t see the point of giving people credit for their showcased photo?

    Quoted from gtxjoe:

    Regarding mobile version feedback. I am starting to read more often in landscape mode, zoomed in to the post content. The eyes are not what they used to be... When I do this, I can no longer see the poster’s name.
    Any chance you would consider shifting the username to where the post # is? Here is what I see on IOS

    That's kind of difficult, because I would have to alter the page layout on the fly in response to zoom actions made by the user.

    A better solution might be for you to keep the page zoomed out and then we find a way to increase (post) text size. I could make it a setting, or something like that.

    Or maybe get a bigger phone?

    Quoted from Aurich:

    I have to admit I'm not wild about the changes to the quote boxes. There's a lot going on with them that isn't entirely working for me. Sorry to nitpick, but these are my thoughts:
    - the rounded edges feels out of place, everything else around them is squared off, it's not really clear why they're like that
    - the radius on the rounded edges is close but not the same as the radius on the circles for the avatars, which creates an awkward visual tension
    - the little in-cut shadow on the left side feels out of place, and visually distracting, I'm not sure what purpose it's serving, but combined with the avatar and the radius difference there's just a lot of noise in that upper left corner now. It feels added because you could, not because it was necessary in any way, and as an element that appears repeatedly across lots of posts I'd personally prefer it to be as clean as possible when reading
    - the new way of just cutting off longer text looks like a glitch, my brain registers it as something broken every time I see it, it doesn't look purposeful
    - in addition to the cut off text feeling weird, there's no visual indication that there's more text to read and you need to click to expand. This feels unfriendly to new users, but even as a Pinside vet I've already clicked a couple shorter quotes to see if there was more or not, because I can't tell if I'm seeing the whole thing or if there's a line break and more text that I'm missing. Having to 'guess click' doesn't feel good
    Just my two cents, but quotes are used a lot, we see them repeatedly in almost every thread, kind of a major element to the site.

    Great points. I have gone back and looked at the quote boxes critically (I must admit, I didn't spend too much time on it for the update) and have implemented some changes.

    Quoted from Rascal_H:

    I thought it was the same logo only vectorized.

    The old logo was also an svg (vector). I asked JP to improve the type (the old font was hard to read) and redesign the ball icon to something more universal and less, ugh, Junk Yard looking.

    Ouch. Look to me like you need to hold shift and click refresh. I hope that will solve the problem.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    Aaargh, this keeps cropping up. Does it happen for every topic or just specific ones?

    Probably related to the problem jwilson reports. I will invesitgate.

    I hope you did mark those images NSFW?

    In all seriousness, if someone makes off-topic posts in non-O/T threads, report it and the moderators can take action.

    Quoted from Crash:

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    I have started accepting member-contributed images for the Pinside header. As such, a photo credit box was nessecary. I think the font and text is small enough to be non-distracting. If it is to you... uhm... I'm sorry about that!

    That's cool & what I figured you were going for. I wanted to send you a few photos but when I go to click on it....it brings me to a PM to you. But there's no way for me to attach the picture files in the PM.

    Do I upload the pics to another site and send you the link in the PM?

    Thanks

    I'm usually in favor of a more streamlined look without everything being hypertext

    The photo credit, e.g. "Photo: Pinballphotos" links to the photographers profile page. The plus icon links to my PM box where people can submit photos. Its title text reads "Your photo here?" - I'm not sure what you mean either or what you dislike about it.

    I like the Pulitzer category but prefer it count words in all posts within past 7 days instead of only counting words in the first post of each thread. Might be easy to do and probably simpler than current queries.

    #137 1 year ago

    I really wish all of this...

    squish (resized).png

    Were part of collapsed panes that are not shown by default or under tool icons. There is just SO MUCH dead space you must scroll through to get to the actual content.

    I love the idea of stats, the gallery, etc... but I don't need it on every page, on every load, taking up 1.5x screens worth of space just to read the actual meat of the thread.

    Same thing at the bottom of the page... the actual place you put text is only like 15% of the page...

    #145 1 year ago

    Haven’t been able to pick up on any pattern of when this occurs, but a few times I’ve gotten a generic white page with just the text of “Could not generate unique token after 10 tries.”

    Usually refreshing a few times resolves it. Anyone else seen this?

    #146 1 year ago

    robin chrome on iOS is not happy with the header area on the new site.

    See on initial page load the white space left... and when scrolling the header often gets left in a bad spot... scrolling tends to get it back to the top... but it comes off again..

    Timestamps shown in PINSIDEMAIL summary screen are not being converted to your personal profile's timezone when its within the same day.

    Suggestion, maybe it should just show relative times "X minutes ago"/"X hours ago" just like forum posts do, instead of absolute timestamps. It already does when over 24 hours ("XX days ago"). Showing relative times in minutes/hours would be consistent.

    #150 1 year ago

    There is an issue with the top 100. When I click on it, NGG isn't #1. ?

    I have been noticing that after I go into a thread, when I hit the back button, all the green boxes that tell me about unread posts in other threads are gone.
