Forum navigation, can it improve?

Recommended Posts

I sent an e-mail to the web master weeks ago and have not heard back, so I thought I would propose my suggestion to the community and see if you are experiencing what I am.

I have a smart phone and often browse and post on the forums away from home.  This involves some zooming in and out to search and read categories and threads, however, I find the current set-up difficult to navigate on a phone.  Chiefly the "page" selection at the top and bottom of each category.  Currently the way to get to the next page looks like this:

« First page… 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 …Last page »

In order to get to the next page I have to zoom way in so my finger tip will choose the correct number.  I proposed that it could be changed to this:

« First page… Previous page… 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Next page …Last page »

There is more than enough room for this and it seems too intuitive to me not to do this.  I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Eh, this isn't exactly a top of the line forum.  I'm sure there are many improvements that could be made.  It seems the entire Fantasy Flight Games website uses the same forum.  I dunno if there is a technical support or general discussion area.  Maybe you can post there?

I already sent it to who I thought would address this kind of issue, but received no response. So I thought it would be worth asking others that use this forum if they felt similar.  If not then it may just be me and no reason to persue it any further.

I've had the same thought a couple of times. My only objection is that fixing this issue would be a bit like putting a new coat of paint on a house that's infested with termites--they have to take care of the root problems first.

Namely.. how frickin slow the forum is. typically it takes 15 to 30 seconds for a page to load.

 

 

15 to 30 seconds….your lucky….hell, it took a minute and half just to load the page so i could make a response. These forums suck!!!!! The forums not the people on them.

They guys who actually built the forums seem to be Edge Studio, which appears to be associated with Edge Entertainment, which in turn somehow appears to be the French and Spanish distributor of FFG products. They're definitely Spanish and not French, too, because the file and path names for all functionality are in spanish (like "edge_atencion.asp" and "edge_contacto.asp").

So I guess if you want the horrible and sluggish forum functionality improved, you'd have to ask those guys. My guess, preferrably in Spanish.

I didn't see this much enlightenment coming from my question but thank you for the information.

I thought all the slow load times were due to my connection speed.  At least the X-Wing product isn't having the problems this web site is!
