Thanks for at least seeing my point of view. Another thing which is terrible, but necessary is everyone having to adblock the site now to make it usable. The site is very boggy now, that can't be disputed. I get onto this site from many different computers...work computers, home rig and laptop, smartphone. Some computers better than others. The site is slow on most all of them now. This was only one of two sites that I disabled adblocking on, but just can't do it anymore. I'm looking for any tweaks I can get to make it run smoothly. Hopefully some optimizing can be done on the default layout to speed it up. Having to write browser scripts just to make it bearable is not ideal.

For now, this is the only way to go about it frown.gif

I hate to say it, but the ball was dropped pretty hard on this one from the developers side of things.

I am surprised that none of the dev team has come to discuss this in public.

Thanks for this.
I started a thread on how to block ads when using Internet Explorer but I wanted to ad this info here too.
This worked for me.

In internet explorer .....

Click Tools -> Internet Options

In new dialogue, Click on Security Tab

Click on the "Restricted Sites" icon (red circle with slash)

Click on the "Sites" button

Where it says "Add this website to the zone", type:

http://partner.googleadservices.com

Click "Add"

Great stuff OP; it'll piss off Huddler, but it's quite nice to have a forum that's actually a forum now, and not some piece of internet bloatware. thumb.gif
post #77 of 89
WOW this is a LOT better. Honestly this is how OCN should have been when they moved over. No offense but I (along with a lot of other people here) can't stand useless clutter and wasted space. The whole carousel and right column thing are just useless to me. Many thanks for this.

Edit - How to get rid of the "My Albums" thing, "list," and "rig" stuff in my profile?

Edit 2 - I love you OP.

"remove right side content"

I believe this is the only alteration I made. It was nice to remove the in-thread side clutter.

You're not the only one obviously, but I like seeing sig rigs. I'd say it is the main component of this site that makes it stand out from the rest. Sadly, you are missing it now. When non-members are just lurking, there is nothing to draw their eye anymore. Sure they can click, but nobody clicks. I rarely clicked to see what somebody's "other" rigs were, why would I click now to see what their main rig is?

The point of having sig rigs is not just so you can help troubleshoot a problem. The point of the sig rigs is also to help keep everyone as current as possible and excited about technology. Not in that everyone must have the latest gear, but everyone might KNOW what the latest gear is. I don't visit the Nvidia GPU section everyday, but if I see in someone's sig that they have a GTX 680 (I realize it's not out yet), then I will be more apt to go investigate that card. If I'm a newbie rocking my Athlon 64 X2 chip and I'm lucky enough to come across this site, I say to myself, "Wow, look at this entire world of cool stuff I never knew about! This guy has a 10 core processor and I didn't even know they existed. I'm going to pee my pants!!!"

I think sig rigs are an integral part of this site that has been changed for the worse. Just my opinion though. We can go on talking again about Skyrim, BF3, or whatever else the flavor of the month is now. Who needs the gear? We can all just get thin clients and still go on this forum, right?

I like having them hidden with the option to see the specs in a drop down box. With the old system they were always shown, however if you wanted to see the specs of their other systems you had to click the link and go to a new page.

I think it could work if we had the main sig always dropped down, so long at it is not a different background colour (which it is now), the different background colour makes it stand out too make and looks out of place.

I believe the main purpose of entering your system specs, when the website launched, was to give technical helpers more help in troubleshooting user problems. If a user says "my graphics card doesn't work properly, I have used these drivers: link" and does not mention the graphics card make and model it can take a while to find this out and the thread may have a tendency to die off if the user doesn't log in for a few days to check any potential answers. I quite like having it hidden, but easily available on the same page. I only really click it now when dealing with user technical hardware issues (troubleshooting). That's just how I feel on the matter, it's good to hear different opinions though smile.gif.

I wish that there could be an option to limit whats displayed in the sig rig to only important parts. For troubleshooting, its not necessary to know what kind of mouse pad the person has or what kind of chair they sit in. Just my 2 cents.
