Forum Layout after Maintenance has problems...

After the forum went through maintenance yesterday, it changed the layout and now there are a few problems. I use the forum on my iPod touch and I notice the forum now loads slower.

Another problem I noticed is when you are in a thread it usually shows the names of the people who commented in that thread as well as the amount of stars they have and underneath their name it would show their post count, but after the maintenance it does not show their post count anymore.

One more problem I noticed is when you are in a sub-forum it does not show which posts have been commented on and which have not. For example if I am in the ps3 forum, it shows the threads that are in the forum and if a thread has been commented on it would show "Re: Then the title of that thread". If a thread wasn't commented on it walls just show the title. But after the forum maintenance it adores not show which threads have been commented on already. Now it just shows the title of the thread and that's it. This is very annoying.

I was wondering if there was a way to fix these problems on the forum. Can you guys relay this info to the appropriate people or something like that? The forum is very difficult and inconvenient to use now on an iPod touch. Like I said, before the maintenance I had zero problems with the forum.

Hi there,

Thanks so much for the feedback.  We'll definitely forward it to the appropriate parties.

Are you experiencing any other issues accessing the forums from your Ipod Touch?  Any login issues?

Thanks ^AH

Thanks for the  update.

Are you using Safari by any chance? If so, can you please try another web browser to see if it loads faster?

Thanks ^AH

I am using safari. The slow loading is not a problem anymore. It seems to be fine. The other problems are still there. I also would like you to know that on the iPad and iPod touch there seems to be a problem with autocorrect now but only on the forum after the update.

1. It is capitalizing the second letter of the first word for example : EXample or HEllo. This only happens at the start of a new paragraph.

2. One other problem I have noticed with autocorrect is that after the forum update, autocorrect on the iPod touch and iPad seems to be changing words that should not have been changed. As well as changing correctly spelled words to incorrectly spelled words. This only happens sometimes and it's kind of hard to explain. It would be better if you could test this out for yourself so you can get a better understanding of the problem.

Glad to hear the loading issue seems to be resolved. Keep us posted should anything change.

We'll definitely look into the auto correct matter and see if we can reproduce it on our end. If you notice any others issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thanks ^AH

Another problem with the layout appears when we open the link of a thread with www. at its begining. Google is currently indexing most of the threads with www. at its begining and the style looks deformed. example of this thread:

while it works properly without www.  http://forums.activision.com/thread/200753648#.UiLYhT89WyE
