I’m not sure about other mobile browsers, but on my Lumia 640 with Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update the thread titles and the author name are on the same line which makes it hard to read.

Hmm… interesting. I thought it was only disabled for me. I’ll reach out to @jennywaboom

I just found that on some pages the font is really hard to read due to the
color which is really similar to the background-color.

You can see an example in the attached picture.
Does anybody else have the same problem, or is it just me?

We are working on the colors…we noticed the red writing on the brown back ground is hard to read…like we said…new forum about 24 hrs old…working the kinks out…any suggestions…send us a pm or post it in suggestions.

We can now post to the thread. You’re welcome to comment there if you have any more forum suggestions.

I know this is being really picky but the social media links on the top right of the website are not in the same order as the social media links on the bottom right of the website and they are not the same style.


#9

Another thing I find a bit weird is that we have both a upvote button, and the three “disagree, agree, and lol” buttons. Why?

Why not get rid of the upvote button, and just have the other three buttons?


#10

@rhrmn by the IOS 10 (Safari) same problem

I agree. xD

Either upvotes (likes) or reactions (agree, disagree, LOL), not both. Agree and upvote essentially reflect the same sentiment.


#12

We also need a member list by roles such as Microsoft, mods, sages, etc.


#13

I would like to be able to unsubscribe from threads as well. At the moment I am receiving a ton of notifications from the AoE:DE t-shirt giveaway thread and there is no way to turn off notifications from this specific thread.


#14

When I type a comment and then go to another thread without posting it still shows later in the Leave A Comment box. If I delete the text then refresh the page the text returns. Please change this so the text I enter in the comment box is not remembered or at least make this an option for users.


#15

The Age team is working with Vanilla Forums to fix this bug.

#16

The forum home does not show any recent topics because those topics are buried in child subforums. Configure the forums so parent forums shown on forum home display the latest recent topic from all child subforums.


#17

For the [“Questions & Suggestions about AOE DE” subforum](https://forums.ageofempires.com/categories/questions-suggestions-about-aoe-de ““Questions & Suggestions about AOE DE” subforum”), please enable the “Ask a Question” post option. This will allow users to see the answers to common questions at the top of the thread without needing to skim through all the reply comments.


#18

Please disable user avatars from poll threads or make them much smaller because they are spilling into the comment area.

#19

Now replaced with an Age of Empires II avatar, as Age of Empires I avatars are not available by default in these forums.

I think we need some official Age of Empires avatars to choose from! I see so many profile pictures (including mine right now) with a byte sized God-knows-what in place instead! :slight_smile:

Check out this Age of Empires wiki for all the avatars your heart desires. :wink:
