Will the collection and wish list area contain the number games on the list? It was a nice feature to keep track of how many games there were on the list.

I strongly second this.

I'm finding a lot of people don't know how to "delete" a post. It is meant to be the "Hide" button correct?

 

I'm not sure what could be done about that besides changing it to say "Delete" instead.

 

Just throwing that out there, idk if anyone agrees

What's the status of the game collection feature?  It is very barebones right now, but it used to be my preferred game tracking tool.  For example, you can't search your collection, nor sort by system or letter like you used too. 

 

Any ETA when those features will return?  The game collection tool of CAG was one of my favorite features.

Grimace, you can filter by letter and some systems.  I don't know if it's much use to you but with the limited functionality, I loaded my entire collection from the list view, copied and pasted it into Excel as text, and then did a little work to get it so I could import it into Microsoft Access to keep better track of the data.  I explained it here: http://www.cheapassg...post&p=10881369

Oops, I must have missed the filter buttons, but I see them now.  Thanks for pointing that out to me!  Hopefully being able to search through your collection by text will be back soon too.  :)

Posting replies to threads with a lot of followers should be faster now.

This happens more times than it works fine, but when I go to bump my sale thread the reply box doesn't appear. It's just a blank empty space. This even happened last night when I tried to reply to a PM.

 

OS X & Chrome, if that helps.

On the forum list where it shows the topics in the forum, the listing of the pages isn't right.

 

It doesn't happen on all threads, though one example is at the top of this forum, the "CAG on your mobile devices" thread.  That shows pages 1, 2, 3 and 6->, which should make me think that the last page of the thread is 6.  When you click on the "6", you end up on page 6, of 7.

 

Some others:

(VGD Forum, page 1) http://www.cheapassg...-175-at-target/ (shows 1, 2, 3, 7->, though has 8 pages)

(VGD Forum, page 1) http://www.cheapassg...als-thread-vii/ (shows 1, 2, 3, 247->, has 249 pages)

 

It sounds like the page index for the thread isn't updated right and that what you think is the last page isn't the last page.

It happened again tonight, so I took a screen cap. I can't post because there isn't a box to type in.

Hey John & Cheapy I have a fairly quick design suggestion to fix this problem I noticed in the nav, it's happening mainly for users with longer profile names. When signed in the DIV containing all of the profile info is getting pushed underneath the main nav bar.

 

My suggestion would be to replace the "profile name text" with an icon, or button graphic. This change would give you a fixed-width element to manage going forward, as opposed to text strings of varying width.

I've run into that a lot on Firefox. I haven't encountered it since upgrading to the latest version (going from FF 3.6 to FF 23 is a big leap!), but I also haven't been on the site a whole lot since then.

I dropped my wireless keyboard and some key press or combination of key presses brought up a quick navigation pop-up for the forums to make it easy to get to other forums from the thread I was on. What do I need to do to bring this back up since this is a much-needed feature that I didn't know was available yet on CAG 3.0?

I don't know about searching, but you can definitely sort by system.

There is no option to sort by older systems like NES, SNES, Genesis, etc. (at least I don't see them in the drop down menu). 

 

Also, when searching for games to add, the way the systems are listed in white font on the pastel colors is almost unreadable.  I have to get up close to the screen to be able to see which system it is.  Genesis, NES, Lynx, GG, N64 and most of the classic systems are almost indistinguishable from each other.

This isn't really all that important, but will we be able to see thread ratings (how many stars) from the list again someday or will we have to click on the threads from now on to see this?

Are you talking about the quick navigation from the community link at the top of the page or something different?  If that's what you're talking about the only way I know to pull it up is to click the navigation icon next to the community link.

Thanks. That seems to be what was triggered, though I don't know how my keyboard brought it up. Now it's a lot easier to get around the site in a similar manner to the forum jump menu on CAG 2.0. That needs to be moved and changed to be more obvious what it is since I would've never guessed that it was a forum quick jump menu.

bulleted and numbered lists don't always appear, rather I think the auto format tags aren't working properly.

 

 

test:

  • b
  • u
  • l
  • l
  • e
  • t
  1. n
  2. u
  3. m
  4. b
  5. e
  6. r
  7. e
  8. d

edit: It seems numbered doesn't work

Yeah I mean who would of guessed that tiny icon next to "community" (I mean "community"? Really? We couldn't just use "forums"?) would open the drop down navigation box.

 

Am I missing something? Is that the universal icon for "navigation" or "drop-down box"?

I don't even bother posting in this suck thread because all the replies are condescending in nature with a tone of "how could you be so stupid not to know that...." "or what are are you talking about... this website is awesome and obviously everyone should like it as-is."

 

CAG doesn't have a huge user base all things considered (when you keep it in perspective with other sites) and there are over 1,800 posts in this thread.

If everything was gravy with the website and people found it to be as slick and enjoyable as the minority that were involved in its design/programming this particular thread wouldn't still need to exist

Yep, every single reply, all of them, every last one, I mean there just isn't one that isn't, is like that.   :roll:

 

I make the best of what is available on this site and have faith that Cheapy and John are working on things.  And you were never curious to see what happened if you pressed that thing?  I'm also saying that it's possible that questions have been answered in this thread by John, Cheapy, and other users.  Yeah, it might take some digging to find it.  

 

So to summarize: your giveaways are done, you don't like the site anymore, and you make it sound like your life is absolutely, positively, Lord Jesus, take me now because I just can't go on, RUINED because of it.

 

And yet most of us don't have that reaction.  How about that.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but the deals forum (or any of the forums) need icons back. On CAG 2.0 I could just look for the Best Buy icon and know it was Best Buy related thread. Now I need to read all the titles to see what each thread is about. It's working fine, but those little icons were great.

Yeah... I'm not going to get into the middle of your feud there with GBA because I know its got some history, but I will say this in response to what I quoted from you:

 

Why is it that someone would be expected to hunt through this thread to find an answer to their question when it has as many pages of posts as it has?  Why is it wrong for someone to ask a question about a new feature (that can be answered by ANYONE, not just you) instead of searching for an hour or more for a specific post, when they have no way of knowing if they'll even find anything?  Do you seriously expect everyone to read this entire thread?  If you really feel you need to respond that way then just leave it alone.  Let someone else answer.

 

If its really that big of a problem, then why not put ALL the changes and additions to the site in one big list for everyone to look at instead of expecting them to go through this entire thread???

Ya know what I think would be cool?  If we could hide threads on the main deals page.  I actually count 11 threads on the front page right now that I would hide if I could.  Mostly ones involving PC games or clearance deals, which I'm just not interested in.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying those threads don't serve a purpose, just that they'll never serve a purpose to me. If I could hide them, then my front page would be a lot less cluttered.

 

I understand that "Followed Content" serves a very similar purpose, but if I only consulted my "Followed Content" list then I'd miss out on new deals posts.

 

Just a thought that popped in my head.  Thanks.

So after looking at the thread I didn't see this come up, though I may have missed it.  Are all of the platforms going to be added to the collection filters, or is it just going to be those modern platforms?  I went to filter my NES games and there isn't an option.
