    I don't like that now I have to login every time instead of using a set link. the forum overall is now turtle slow for me, don't know if it is for others as well. I REALLY miss being able to go straight to the end of a thread with the last page button. I normally would do that on long threads then page back to where I had left off the day before so I could then read on and stay current. Now it's not possible to go right to the end. Miss the rep system as well, it was unique. Now we're back to the generic like system that every other site in the world uses. Funny that actually, the forum is now getting more generic same as the game is getting more generic. I know the forum is a work in progress and my hope is it returns to some of it's older state. It really was much better.

      I think the forum will get much better FPS if they have occlusion working and some shader optimization. Forum user AI may be a problem though because navigating through the forum takes a lot of cpu cycles. I don't think we can afford more than 64 forum users at the same time

          Do what you need to do homie. Right now between the interface and locked sections the forum is practically down anyway... Might as well knock out everything you want to do sooner rather than in pieces.

          /My two cents

Please be patient and we will get back a pleasing interface that is tailored to 7 Days to Die just as before. In the meantime please post what you like or want as far as features. For example, individual posts can be given a "thumbs up" that is publicly shown which is something we never had before.
                Wow even the forums are a placeholder for a future vision.

                  You shouldn’t need to login each time. There is a remember me box you can check. I’ve remained logged in just like before. My last post was 3 hours ago and I didn’t have to log back in.

                  You can also go to the end of a thread by clicking the green arrow icon at the title of the thread. Don’t click the title to get into the thread, click the little green icon.

                  Generic isn’t the goal. We will have a fully customized and thematic 7 Days to Die background soon just like before.

                    I was referring to unique features, not artistic backgrounds. As I said directly in my post.

                      Can I just say,... I love the new Private Message setup! It's set up as convo instead of separated individual messages. Soooo much better. Thanks.

                        We will look at the rep system. Hopefully we can have both systems as they each give interesting information. Personally, I like the post centered rep that shows public agreement or appreciation of a particular postt but no negative thumbing down. The old version had a negative aspect to it that was a source of problems for the moderation team.

                          The color (grey text on grey and black background) is strenuous on the eyes. Needs more contrast.

                          And there should be way more posts showing up on one page, why only ten?

                            Likes:
                            • Higher-contrast text, especially in the Search box. Please keep white or near-white on black or dark grey. Do not do black on grey.
                            • No more "go advanced" for the editor - it's all advanced, all the time woo!
                            • "Insert paragraph here" could be useful
                            • Floating search, page selection, and filter always at the top
                            Dislikes:
                            • No page list on each thread right in the forum thread list - made it easy to just skip to the end of a thread I've already participated in
                            • No partial quoting (old system did not have it either tho)
                            • If you opt to quote someone's post after you have started your reply, your reply is blown away (instead of just inserting the quote at the cursor)
                            • If you un-quote a post (de-selecting the Quote toggle under their post, changing it back from yellow to white), then your post is blown away again. Not just the quoted part, the whole post gets erased
                            Wishlist:
                            • Partial quoting i.e. select part of someone's diatribe and click Quote to only have that portion carried into the new reply (or even better, pop up a Quote button right next to your selection)
                            • Multi-quoting - select part of A's diatribe and partial-quote, then select part of B's diatribe and partial-quote it into the same reply at current cursor position
                            • (Unicorn request) - a "collapse all/expand/expand all" option so we can just see poster's name, timestamp, and first line of body and then expand the replies we want to read

                            vBulletin has always been one of my favorite forum platforms. Very customizable. I'm sure 7D2D forums will be back on-brand in no time.

                              For those that like to enter a thread at the last page there is a method. Enter the section you want, say News and Announcements. The right side of the thread shows the last poster. Beneath his/her name is a double arrow.....click that.

                                If you go to your settings you can change the number of posts that show. I have mine on 30 and it is working. Threads on the main page are still stuck at 10 with no way that I've found so far to increase. But once inside a thread you can increase the number of posts you see. I would also like to see more than 10 threads showing on the first page of any subforum.
