Thanks a lot for this post and thank you for bringing in a redesigned IF. Its very much needed.. I have checked the new link and it looks really amazing.
I understand its in BETA stage...that means, its still under construction. I am able to log in and get to see some of my Personal mails. but not able to check my personal posts or the threads which I have created and manage. I have created and manage threads on IF to write my own fan fictions. May I know if anything will effect what we have contributed so far? Will it have any effect?
Also, I always wanted the authority to deactivate my account if not delete it completely. Can we not get that feature in this new india forums that we are about to enter in? That'll be really helpful for those people who would like to take a break from here for some reasons but can't actually do so because of the constant feeling of checking on their favourite discussions. Trust me, we all end up procrastinating things that's important because we can't lose the fun here. In that case we can just deactivate our account for set periods like a week, a month or like so and we can't reactivate is back before time. That's perhaps a lot of work for developers IDK but that'll be really awesome add on. Thank you!
Interface is really good and I liked there r separate tabs for tv forums , bollywood and main homepage ..
But I hope before u guys go live and launch it , few things r fixed like one cannot see their avatars , signatures nor the forum banners .. a lot of creative people on IF take time out to make signatures and forum banners for which we hv contests too .. if these options r not available in the newer version then forum will loose traffic as lot of creative members will leave the platform .. so hope forum banner , signature , avatar features r retained ..
Also pls chk every buttons r properly working especially quote feature , our dashboard , edit profile , pm box , my posts etc .. these r some of the imp features of IF and members should not hv any problem using these features ..
Last but not the least ,from a DT pov ,pls make sure all the Dev team right features r properly given to all the mods , viewbies , CMs,GMs once the site launches so that we can immediately help the members with their problems ..
