Wiiloveit

Could we have an option to report specific comments or users please, since I've noticed a lot of incidents recently involving users not willing to edit comments, and instead posting lots of new comments, however there isn't a way on the forums to let you guys know easily enough. I'm not going to name any names here (cough geek-master cough), but from looking at a couple of the forumites, this feature would be greatly appreciated by the rest of us.

If there was a way to contact the specific users themselves as well, that would be great.

If you are to have email contact between users, then I think it would be important to do it in a way that keeps each members email address hidden, like they do on yahoo answers for example, if you could do that then I think it could be a good addition to the forums.

Oh, you've done it. Well done, guise, although I think the yellow triangle sign in the normal news comments section will take a bit of getting used to.

Is it only me who thinks that linear forum style suck. Havn´t seen it for quite some time but wasn´t the "old fashion" tree style a lot better? Then you could answer someone more directly without having quotes all over the place. I think it was/is much easier to follow a conversation in tree style.

I like things as they are.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

It's particularly bad for the news part of the site. I see the bright, yellow triangle and I'm overcome with this strange compulsion to want to click it! I think the muted exclamation point was a better interface.

In the forums, Quote and Report should probably be switched. From a usability perspective, the link on the outside is more likely to be clicked on accident.

Thankfully, if you click report it will open up a command box asking if you want to report the post. But if you do it by accident, and we get an email to report a perfectly valid post, then we'll be getting the duct tape out...

I think the layout is fine. Changing it would probably cause more confusion in some respects as people are getting used to how things are. Then again, that's just my views on it.

@nanaki how about a fiery red button instead of light orange? It´s bound to be a lot of accidental clicks. Mainly by me being an idiot et all.
