Most of the 'behind the scenes' work on a number of the site's features is now complete, leaving us with content to add/update as and when we have time, so we're looking at a couple of things that we can do to improve NEB.

Instead of us debating on what we think would most likely to be found useful by the site's users, we thought it'd be worth asking you all directly. That's more likely to give us a good range of different things people would like to see on the site, and also see if there's a big interest in one particular idea.

So, please, give us your suggestions. We look forward to reading them!

I think it's in a pretty sustainable format as-is. I don't personally anything outside of pushing on archive stuff is going to benefit the community with any noteworthy level. I check the forums daily and nothing pops into my head, I don't think "Oh woldn't it be cool to have X?" at any given point. I wouldn't want to see things changed just for the sake of changing stuff, a part from skin refreshes or whatnot. Speaking of which, good job Smile

Keep up the good work!

Get the Tapatalk app, that’s what I use when I use my mobile instead of going on the NEB website.

I agree about unread posts. Stumbling around at the moment trying to find what I've read and what I haven't

Hopefully this reply makes sense. The screen doesn't seem to want to scroll at all. I'm unable to zoom out to see the whole screen. Just the area I'm typing in. 
This includes the 'post message' button, which isn't in view. 
If I manage to post this message, it is because I have gone through the 'preview post' button.

Going to third the comments about the unread posts. It means I now have to view a thread that holds no interest to me which, as somebody who is starting to use the forum less and less, can be a pain when all of the posts build up.

Thanks everyone - I was hoping to obtain some feedback on ideas for new features rather than the new theme, which was only rolled out to everyone as more and more people had chosen to use this theme without it being formally rolled out, and it 'fixed' the issue with Archive/Bygone Era.


Unread Posts is still available on desktop view (but only shows when you actually have an unread post), and is planned to be added to the mobile view as soon as possible.

You can use the old theme temporarily, if you primarily view on a mobile device, via your user settings.

Choose 'North East Buses' under Board Style.

Obviously a temporary measure, as we'll be rolling out the new theme to everyone, once the last few things are sorted with it.

I've found that, when I go to the Unread Posts section, it just takes me to the thread in which the post is located rather than to the most recent unread post. Have I missed something in how to identify when there's unread posts in specific threads only, and then go to those posts? The old version of the site seemed to do it perfectly!

Was just about to mention that.
