This new layout is hard to get around.

Am I the only one that is having a hard time?  I mean I'm sure I'll get it after some wandering around but it's definitely a little harder to navigate through.

You get used to it.. It is a bit slow but they may be working on that.

It's a combination of sluggish connection times, and a poorly connected forum, but i think it will get better over time, in other words no you are not the only one.

After a while it becomes much easier and it's really well set out imo

It's different from anywhere else I've been, but it's easy to get used to. Just make use of the Favorites.

Seems alright to be, a tad confusing at first but after 15 minutes or so you get the hang of it.

When I visited Comic Vine before this site launched I only looked at it for 5 mins but it seemed difficult to navigate, but I haven't had any problems with giant bomb so far, it's been great.

I only problem I have with the site is that it's going very slow. I had a big write up on the role of Playboy X in GTA IV and when I tried to submit it, I got stuck at the loading screen and couldn't do anything. =(

I have no qualms with navigation.  It's pretty simple stuff really.

All the topics seem to just be listed, and there's not a whole lot of organization which can be a bit annoying.

The problem I have is that these forums have no organization, it's just "OMG STUF!!1" everywhere. So there can never be one or two forums you visit because that's what you want to talk about, you just click "Recent" and then post in whatever. I personally really dislike it myself, and I don't think it's going to change anytime soon (Since this is basically just Comic Vine with certain words changed) but I've never been that big into super-active forums anyway, so what do I know.

I think fixing the personal profile stuff would be more important.

Im ok with it, i just need to spend maybe another hour around the forums and i'll get the hang of it...you will too just keep cruising the forums.

the forums are a pain to navigate, they need to work on organizing it

It would be nice to have an actual forums index, with General Discussion, Off Topic, and then the platform specific boards.  The platform specific forums are dead because of the current setup, and when you click favorite, you generally just get a mashing of different posts from different forums.  I'd like to simply see direct links in a drop down menu when you click favorites.  This is the main reason 90% of the posts are passing through here.

I guess it just takes a little getting used to. It seems most of the navigation revolves around the search functionality.

Need to tone it down a bit till more people get the hang of it then start adding "features".

Well considering this site is still in beta, I think it'll improve.
The way the topics are organized are pretty straight forward and simple, but if they could just organize them in a better way would be much better.

I'm completely lost. Is this a current topic that somehow got bugged and it's showing the wrong date on the posts, or did you post in a four-and-a-half year old topic about a layout that's been, well, more than replaced by now?

Not to be 'that guy' but I don't really think it's that different. It's a little slower but everything seems to be in the same basic spot as it was before.

I'm still annoyed at the lack of YouTube because the new video player's "Auto" setting doesn't seem to be very good. The videos sometimes don't play in HD even though I can pick 1080P on YouTube and all is fine. (same with Netflix)

It has to be a bug that non-premiums can't choose YouTube or 720P/HD on the new player...they wouldn't paywall that

...right?
