So sleek. So shiny. Still has that ‘new forum’ smell. Mmmnnnn.

Oh hi there, hope you’re well. Apologies for the delay, but we’ve finally made it to the other side and brought as much of the old forum content with us as we could!  As of today the community is now part of PlayStation.com and your community profile is your PSN ID.

Now this is the first launch, and we’ve included functions for a smooth transition from the previous forum – however we will keep working with you on new features to add in future updates. This is a soft launch, and not the end of our work on it.  (PS: I'd recommend using 'Last Updated' as your homepage thread filter)

Here’s a couple of key differences from the previous forum:

  • First time on the PlayStation.com Community?

You’ll only need to create your community account the first time you visit. Next time you visit the community you’ll only need to be signed in on playstation.com to contribute.

  • New Score System

If you had a rank on the previous forum, you’ll now have a nice shiny badge on your profile recognising your contribution on the community. These badges are unique and only available for previous contributors.

The new score system is simple and straightforward - upvotes and posts generate points for your profile. Remember it’s the quality of your content that’s important, not quantity.

  • Personalised Activity feed

You’ve now got the option to follow any interesting thread and community members, so when a new comment is added or the member posts, you can receive a notification. You’ll be able to customise your activity feed on your profile page.

  • Private Messages and Groups

As the community is now part of PlayStation.com and your profile is your PSN ID, there’s no longer separate forum PMs. Instead any private messages you want to send are now via your PSN messages.

 

 

FEEDBACK

Please look around and test out the forum, and then please use this thread for any and all feedback.

It would be really helpful if you could separate your feedback into 3: Forum Feedback, Feature request or Bug. That way it’s easy for us to look through at what’s just general feedback of the new forum, what’s a specific feature request, and what’s a bug.

    Will have a better look around in the morning, but so far so good.

    Feels a little slow though, is that just me? Or will be different once it is fully live?

    Bug

    Noticed when clicking reply, there's a good chance the box to input your message just won't show up (javascript issue I assume) I'm using FireFox.

    Just checking to see, can we @Groovy_Matthew mention people on new forum?

     

    Also due to a lot of older threads moving over, there's a lot of borked content that will no longer display correctly. Think we'll have to go through and delete the replies as we see them.

    Also curious - is the plan to merge all content about a game in a single thread (for those games not currently GT Sport / Dreams) just thinking that we have the power to move a thread between boards, but not merge it within a thread. We'd also lose potential SEO ranking i.e. the more threads people make with various topics in the title the more results in Google / more clicks - rinse repeat.

    1. All the in-built navigation seems to lead me away from the forums and I can’t find a way back, unless I use my bookmark. 
    2. Cant type in this text box unless I click on one of the top menu items (bold, underline, etc)
    3. All the threads seem to open on their first page, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to skip to the last/most recent page. Also it seems to post on whatever page I have open instead of chronologically.

    I see there is sort of nesting.

    It's VERY white.

    I have to scroll back up to the top to post a general post reply rather.

    I will see how it goes.

    Absolutely no idea what’s going on now or where anything is, seems no obvious structure, the “show more replies” is annoying already and how exactly do you find stuff. Is there just one big general section now? I don’t get it..?

    Also where’s my badge!?!!

    On a plus side I don’t seemed to have been signed out yet...

    Are there going to be sub-forums?

    Are the beta forums dead?

    How do I go onto last post on a thread? (that has already been read)

    Hello World........ Nope that's been done to death.

    HiLo :) So this is the new shiny shiny huh. I'll need to have a proper look around and see how evertything works and hopefully not break anything (if it's not already broken).

    Welcome home everyone.

    woo, its the start of the new forums :D. the place looks pretty cool (and white), all fancy and ready for some foruming action.

    glad we found it hiding behind Support hehe. hopefully we'll see some new forum boards, the old posts & threads, features, fixes and other bits & bobs pop up over time 8).

    Hmmm I'm not sure about this new shiny forum.

    So far i'm seeing what looks like a lot of poor design decisions.

    For instance why is the reply box at the top? That just discourages people from reading the thread which is where the answer will likely be found for their questions. Then if you do read the thread you need to scroll all the way back to the top to post something. 

    This new forum also has alot more white than the previous one had. Which will be a problem for people who prefer dark themes to minimise eye strain.

    If i try pasting a link on mobile it tells me i should use ctrl + v instead. That's not very helpful to a mobile user who doesn't have those keys. I would post a post a screenshot but it seems that is longer possible unless i upload it somewhere first. Which is not a very user friendly thing if you are trying to post a picture to help someone.

    I didn't think you could make nesting 2.0 worse than than nesting 1.0. Why do i have to click show more replies? Why can't i view all replies at once without having to continously click show more replies.

    I clicked on the notification that someone had replied to me, and it took me to the top of the page with it. I got to play hide and seek which was not the most fun.

    The nesting is a bit bizzare.
