Latest UG Improvements - comment and rate here
 
Fellow UGers!

As most of you have already noticed, there's been some major changes introduced to UG during past few weeks, namely:

- news are being updated every day now (including Saturdays and Sundays);
- Lessons section got featured on main page instead of Interviews;
- like/dislike rating system for News, Interviews and Columns instead of 1-10 rating;
- comments upgrades (avatar display, Top Comment, reply branches)
- brand-new articles series like WTF? and UG Newsbites

Let us know what you think of these improvements here in this thread.

If you wish to submit an idea for Tab Pages, News or something else to make your favorite site look and work better, welcome here.

Cheers!

I like these changes.

EDIT: Has the size limit for avatars been changed? Yours is much bigger then mine (lol.)?

I'd noticed the lessons where interviews used to be, and I find I'm reading more lessons than I used to read interviews.

Control panel still says 50x50 or 19.5kb for me.

Can I get a big avatar like yours?

WantsLesPaul 08-13-2012 11:40 AM

Wouldn't call it big. More like above average.

laid-to-waste 08-13-2012 11:40 AM

you should change the max avatar size to 100x100

He cheats, although I like the current size limit.

Seems cool. I don't know about the rating system, though

I know it said to post suggestions in there, and i did, but im going to make it agian in here.
I think that we need a calender or some way to view news articles posted on specific days. There isnt really any way to do it now, which makes it difficult when you have been away for a few days to catch up on the news. There are those links to choose the different news categories, but you cant see all of the news posted on a specific day, which is what i would like to be able to do.

I support larger avatars, I know vbulletin can do it.

LostLegion 08-13-2012 12:56 PM

We need to update this version of vBulletin. The most recent one is version 4. We're on version 2 or 3 I think

Damn

WhiteStripesIII 08-13-2012 01:21 PM

Let's revert to UG exactly as it was in 2006 when I joined. Change is bad.

This version of vBulletin is modded and altered so much by the UG team, that an upgrade would lose so much of the work they've done. It's not worth it.

Also, I personally think the Interview section should go back in its original position on the site.

whoomit 08-13-2012 01:29 PM

I think they're all really good updates.

A couple new fun widgets would go down a treat as well :p:

Colohue 08-13-2012 02:19 PM

Have interviews been stopped altogether?

They just did one with Steve Vai and it wasn't on the frontpage, I've liked all the other updates but that's just silly.
