Forum's may de unavailable temporarily as permissions are transferred in the leadup to the creation of an ArmA2 English section. Please be patient, this is temporary.

OK folks, no doubt you can see the changes;

*The ArmA1 specific forums now have their own parent forum. All existing forums were relocated as it's subforums.
*ArmA2 has its own parent forum. The ArmA 2 forum was relocated there and new sub forums created to mirror the original ArmA1 forums for ArmA1.
*The About Our Website, OFP and O/T forums have been relocated in a parent forum called the 'Common Room.' These will be for the use of all as usual but to illustrate they are distinct from the game forums, they have their own section now.

Permissions should be correct. Please post any issues you discover or email/PM myself, Deadeye or pMaster. You can alert Cervo if the matter is urgent.

Hmm... could we have the English sections expanded out? Like before? Might not be as tidy, but it makes it less difficult to navigate the forums... unsure.gif

What Dave said, it's a bit too compact now if you get what I mean.

I agree, I dislike the current layout. Expand the majority language :\

It's a little hard to expand it out unless we remove the common room and have those 4 forums under the English heading as they were. The ArmA forums must remain how they are elseit will be too confusing for new users from ArmA II as to where to post.

With tabbed browsing now part of most browsers its not that difficult I've found - the two ArmA forums are identical once you are in.
Give it a week or so and see. No-one likes change.

Reverted the common forums to their old positions whilst retaining new ArmA forum layouts.

Mainly because I am not yet quite evil enough to adopt the facebook 'change it and wait until they forget' method of dealing with resistance to a new layout.

Not really much of an improvement... unsure.gif

The ArmA sections are still far too clunky...

Should I worry I didn't realise until you just mentioned it that there was a difference? ohmy.gif

Hey, next time I could just ignore everyone until they adapt.

As for 'clunky' its beats 'cluttered' which is what we get f every forum is replicated in full for both games with the following confusion for new forum members.

Basically my position is I've made a concession and also implemented my own wishes which were agreed upon by site staff and were not vetoed by Cervo.





Because I can. happy.gif

To be honest, I'd rather have a messy forum if we know where everything is and it's easily accessible! It's not like the Queen visits the forums. And even if she does, you don't like her anyhows, so you should intentionally make the forum messy! tongue.gif
