whats everyone think of the new layout?

Showing 1 to 13 of 13

i have mixed views personally, i like how everything looks and how we can see who's online, thats a useful feature, however many of the links don't work well anymore, and i think we should be able to see what people have written under their profiles, like we used to.

Yeah I miss not being able to read people's profile pages. 

Also some weird happened to the discussion pages. All of the posts are said to be written by the same person, when they weren't. It's really odd.

Yeah both of the posts above say they were written by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch and I made a reply to a post yesterday and it said it was written by someone else, it is really annoying. Some things are also harder to find like the discussions page. I also think they should be improving other things instead, such as the mindmaps as you can only have one box shape and they print out tiny which is really annoying so I have to write them out again on A3 paper. I sent a response to them yesterday basically saying all that, if more people do the same they might get round to doing something!

yeah this is happening to loads of discussions, there are lots of problems that didn't exist before

Makes it hard to keep track of who is saying what. (I'm Grace Tilly by the way)

haha yes it's confused me, at first I thought you were like having a convo between yourself, or that the others had been deleted until I posted one :D I agree it's confusing to find these discusions as well. It all looks nice but I think the grey buttons aren't very good because I generally assosicate it with like not able to click sort of thing so sometimes it confuses me. (Lucy :) by the way :D)

I agree with this and I have also found that things are working worse rather than better as well; i thought it was good how we could see what subjects people take when you click on their names, that way you know who to inbox if you need help on a particular subject. This name is happening to me as well, on every discussion i make it looks like i am having a conversation with myself?? (btw I'm PurpleJaguar). Also, it won't let me ask questions it only lets me start discussions, is this happening to anyone else or just me?

yeah exactly the same happens to me, i had a really important question to ask for IT and it wouldn't let me ask it. also i miss not being able to see what people have written underneath their profiles and what subjects they are taking, instead you have to ask someone what topic and level they are doing which is annoying if they are not online at the time cause you ahve to wait ages for a reply. i like the new layout and the apperace of it but i don't like how every thing that did work, now doesn't work. also i fid that when i search for a resource under my own resources if i click the topics to narrow down the search it comes up with something like 'item not found' when i know that it does exist.

Yeah it was good when we could see what people had written on their profiles because you get to know what kind of person they are.

Yeah some of the hyperlinks are not working like now, at the top of the screen it says; 

home > discussions > New features on GetRevising

And when you click on the new features hyperlink it comes up with 'item not found' so you have to click on discussions and access it through that way again

This is really confusing why on earth is everything saying it is by 'the girl who knew too much'?
Also i agree, i liked seeing profile pages
I also liked the discussion boards not the new chat system, there should be a more obvious link to this

yeah and i think these little problems  should be fixed like only the person who created the discussion comes up on the discussion cause it is really confusing

I don't like how you can't see who wrote/posted something any more unless they put their name. Also, I find it really dificult to get on to the discussions page - I think this is why there's less discussions and replies now compared to what there used to be.
