Call of Duty Ghosts General Discussion

We're making quite a few changes to mobile, and we'll properly QA the theme changes prior to releasing them, so we should have some improvements for you guys next week.  This will include pinning the header to the top to free up some of the real estate and reduce the size of the space icons (so there are two per row) to reduce the amount of scrolling needed. There will be a lot of other improvements to make it easier to post.

We'll go ahead and tweak some of the colors to improve readability later today (both the white on white for the share and the blue font used throughout).

The ideation module has been enabled, currently only on the General Discussion forum.  We'll expand it to other sub spaces in the near future. There aren't any standard widgets for integrating twitter so we would have to look into custom widget or HTML to make that happen.  We'll see what we can do.

The lack of the more button is definitely a bug in the widget, one that Jive is working to resolve. We may have a workaround and we're currently testing it out.

The top rated and top liked widgets we added to give users more options for browsing content, partly to compensate for the lack of the More button.

I'll also discuss with some of the teams here your suggestions regarding the forum sub spaces, as well as the support space and how ATVI is handling.

The idea space is currently orphaned so the ideas don't show on the general forum and you cant move them there, which does sort of miss the point of it   http://community.activision.com/ideas/3203

I thought the twitter widget came as standard with jive , maybe i was wrong sorry

thats fair enough and now you've explained it the additional sections do make more sense.

Small bug with the up/down vote - refreshing page allows multiple votes but doesn't show as an extra vote, first vote gave +/-15 (I think) all subsequent votes gave +/-5

For the ideas, what space did you create it from?  I just created a test one in general discussions and it did show up in the recent content. I also added a recent ideas on the right rail to verify.  I've since deleted my test but it seemed to work as expected.

Edit: Just reread your post.  Try creating an idea from here: GHOSTS GENERAL DISCUSSION.  There should be the Create Idea on under Actions.

As you guys may have seen, we just pushed an update to the theme, which includes the enhancements for mobile.  We'll be doing an official post shortly with all of the enhancements, but wanted to let you guys know first.  Let me know if you have any feedback or issues with the updates.
