@PsychoGoldfish just released a big forum update!


Some improvements:


  • It uses the newer layout, so we're one step closer to people never seeing the old layout.
  • It should read and function much better on mobile.
  • We're debuting a new text editor so you can do fancier formatting.
  • Standard accounts can include two pictures in a post, Supporters up to TEN.
  • You can drag and drop pictures and in some cases copy paste pics.
  • Replies are made in a lightbox so you won't lose your place in the thread.
  • You can reply in-feed and never leave your feed.


Other notes:


  • We wanted to get this out with time to fix bugs before the holidays so expect some bugs. Let us know what you find! Include browser and OS in your report.
  • Post deletion and reactions are coming.
  • Layout should continue to improve as we tidy up small details.


Let us know what you think! This text editor will be making its way over to the blogs next if all goes well. You'll finally be able to blog from mobile.


With this out of the way you can expect a big focus on Art updates as we enter 2019!


If you're a new artist on NG be sure to read our welcome post.


December 19th Update - Bug Fixes:


  • If you made a commission blog post and then clicked the "Open for Commissions" link, your post might not have shown up because it hadn't been indexed in our search yet. This should be fixed now.
  • New forum users were hitting a dead end at the "Agree to Terms and Conditions" checkbox. This should be fixed now.
  • We made some project system changes in preparation for the Smash Collab and there was a quirk where content would default to Flash even when you didn't have that enabled. This should be fixed now too, @Luis.


December 20th Update - Animated Art Thumbnail Bug


  • If you upload an animated piece of art, your thumbnail might turn out broken. We're keeping track of the ones we see until this is fixed.


The Smash Collab is arriving soon!


Also reminder, if you want NG to feel more like an app on your phone, load NG in your browser and then do this:

THE OLD FO-


Honestly, looking pretty damn good. Nice to see the pace of updates picking up with all the new folks. Also nice that I can now read the forums without the awful panning around all over the place.


Good work!


One thing I noticed is that when you click someone's posts from their userpage, that page is still in the old layout; will that be updating soon too?

Looks good so far...

yeah, probably after new years. That's the last userpage area that needs to go to the new design I think, so that'll make me happy. Also going to get this new text editor into the blogs on there so you can blog properly on mobile finally

Good stuff, I bet it'll feel good once you can finally delete all the shared assets the old layout used. I honestly enjoy deleting large chunks of code more than writing new code.

totally does work better on mobile which is the only way I access the site so it's super badass


Edit: hey it seems we can only reply by quoting a post and there is no standard post reply button 🤔

So when looking on mobile I don't see a respond to this topic button, only the buttons that let you reply to the individual posts. Is this right?

I only see the buttons that link to replying to individual posts within the thread itself.

It was missing but should be there now - still needs some styling improvements on mobile but will get the job done.

That would be neat to implement "likes" to specific posts.

I’m looking forward to using this and upload multiples images per post. That’d be really useful for personal art threads.


i’m aware it’s early days, but how is this functioning with multi-page threads? I’m on the phone atm, and if I want to go to the latest replies I am scrolling down to the bottom of the first page.

It's the same for me. If there really is no option to reply to the topic, that's quite inconvenient.

That is something we have to figure out the best path for. We removed the top pagination on mobile because it's ugly and crowded there but we know people will want to at least get to the latest posts on the last page. We could add a Last Page or Latest Post link, think that would be enough?

I'm noticing list items don't seem to show up in the quoted text when I try to respond to this! Maybe not supposed to be that way? Was going to quote the...


Standard accounts can include two pictures in a post, Supporters up to TEN.


...and say you best add that to the Supporter benefits list too. :)


Awesome changes overall. Going to take some getting used to but so far I like it! New characters remaining bar, instant toggles for quote and code and such... it still feels like NG but works a lot smoother than it used to.


Regarding quotes: seems there's a visual difference between the : bits when you quote a post, and the quote format when you actually toggle it via the text editor? Thinking a unified style might be good there.


Regarding the lightbox: I'm not a big fan of those, so I'm happy you can still open the reply box in a new tab too (though for some reason only via right-click, not CTRL + click, if that's in any way site-related). It feels a bit more efficient using individual tabs if you want to keep reading while the reply box loads. Or any other content type for that matter. Always appreciate when that's a possibility. Like it used to be with the feed and inbox hmm...


Mood responses: they're everywhere. XD I both like and don't like those. Good things with moderation. Oh well.


Great things heavily overweigh any potential less great ones though. Looks awesome so far.
