Clearly it would have made more sense to change the logo link to go to /forum.php and add a "home" button, so users wouldn't have to change the way they use your product. Instead, you make a poor decision and mock the users about it. Here's a hint, no one would click on the "home" button anyways.

One of the most useful features of the PbN iOS app, for me, is the "participated" tab, which only shows threads you've posted in. Something like that on the desktop site would be handy.

How would new people to the site know how to get to the forum then?

The forum is the most important part of PbNation. Of course we made that super obvious by putting a "Forum" button. Your way works for you but it actually doesn't work as well for new users. We can't just expect them to know.

I'll have to look into that. I click UserCP every time I go to PbNation and get threads I have recently posted in that have activity. I use it al the time. But I wouldn't mind some suggested kind of threads.

I like it if you mean paintball news. Have PbN links to threads like you are talking about? If you mean world news, that's not going to happen.

Actually it would work fine for new users. Instead of having the "pbnation" go to the home screen, have it go to the forums like it has always have. Then the Forum button actually say "home" and it go to the home screen.

Aside from you'd be taking away a glaringly obvious way to access the forum and replacing it with a less obvious one. If the forum is the most important part of PbN, shouldn't it be more obvious?

God forbid we use logic to fix the issue

Seriously, just bookmark the forum link if you guys want to be directed straight to the forum. The new homepage is an added perk and it seriously takes 0.2 seconds to click the "Forum" button at the top.

Could you guys possibly add the locker feature to the top bar or somewhere on the new homepage?

Much like it's intended use would make navigating into desired forums/threads from the homepage quick and easy.

A possible fix could be linking someone's rig from the photos of the marker subsection forums.

Just my two cents, but overall a great job. Thanks guys!
Was this ever replied to or have all the responses directed towards addressing the people crying over needing a forum button?

adding abbreviation style, if we have private msg's. it would be nice to see that before having to go to the forum to see if any. and able to click it to access it of course. all it would have to be is PM 1 or etc #'s or zero.

ReplyNews Ups


Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
