We need the Origin Friends List Pane complete with Private Chats.

The format needs to be improved. There's too much padding everywhere and it's difficult to decipher what's a title/link/body text, where one section ends and another begins, etc...

Battlelog Integration? The ability to seamlessly toggle between the Forums and the rest of Battlelog is kind of a big reason the forums are so active. Despite the forums becoming much quieter over the last 12-18 months they're still way more active than most other niche communities.

    I agree with all the above.


    Also, how about that 120 seconds in between posts? I understand it is to cut down on spam, but that was never a problem on regular battlelog to begin with :|
    Now i could understand like 30 seconds or 60, but 2 minutes is really way too long. And the fact that it stacks, makes it worse. If you try to post before that two minutes is up, well buddy you got to wait ANOTHER 2 minutes....

    Stuff like this makes this forum a pain to use... I cant say I will ever fell at home here unless stuff like this is dealt with.

    I can't say I've run into that yet. It was on the old forums but it was way less than 2 minutes. More like 20 seconds, if that. It was irritating enough then, sometimes you just want to reply to two threads quickly.

    agreed. thats ridiculous.

    30 seconds is plently. and it shouldnt stack.

    at least show a timer or something so i dont accidentally reset the timer when i jump the gun by 5 seconds.

    Good feedback.

    Thanks everyone.

    One of the reasons for the time is the fact that on this forum, you can post right after yourself, unlike Battlelog. We've already seen a bit of that in some threads.

    I'm always open to suggestions. Let's cut it down to a minute - how's that? Test it out, see if that works, and we'll continue adjusting.

    Regarding the editing time - I think I can bump that up a bit.

    What's next?

    Would be helpful if the original post had unlimited edition time :p

    Since i've made quite a long threads, the longest one of them reached the Battlelogs symbol cap and took around 1 year to finish it o:)


    This one, my in-dept tutorial for jet usage / jet scrubbing

    these kind of post became impossible in here :p

    or then someone has to have a lot of time to type that in one go :D

    i want to be able to choose themes. I prefer a white background, others prefer dark, I think that shouldnt be too hard.

    and the posting spam lock shouldnt stack either. if it says a minute lock, it should be a minute, not "oh, you accidentally jumped the gun by a few seconds, lets reset the clock again."

    It doesn't stack, but I see what you're saying. What it does is actually add temp post-ban for 2 minutes. I can reduce that as well.

    THEMES - Not likely. We will be branding it soon.

    I'm getting used to this background already, after using BF3 background for 4,5years this felt weird at beginning

    as one might guess

    Nice to see the mods are actually taking the feedback into serious consideration. Awesome job.

    Okay. So the spamblock has been adjusted. It should be much friendlier now. (Don't you just love the fact we can adjust the forums within minutes without a downtime for the forums? I DO!)

    Like I've said before, gaps between return/enter presses are way too large. Should be standard one line for one key press.

    Actually id say this is a good thing. Should help out with those "Hard to read" threads where people don't know how to press the enter key twice for organization. Even though we rarely see these and just see walls of text more, which this wont help at all with.

    Speaking of which, can we make some sort of rule against walls of text lol?

    Well then add one extra line per enter, not three.
    Also, make it only 20 posts per page like on Battlelog.

    This forum looks just like the competitions forms.I think it is better to set yourself apart from the comp. rather than being just a copy. Here is the link,you be the judge.

    I would much rather see a forum with multi skins that could be switched at will. Maybe a theme for the color blind people out there. Or maybe a background theme that promotes the next dlc or content.

    the forum is being updated as it goes along, this is essentially just a skeleton forum.
