Exclamation 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'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.

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.

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

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.

I think they're all really good updates.

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

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.
