Helly Crytek Team,
first of all I'd like to say that it's really nice to see some changes to the forum. However I'd would like to suggest couple of things as a user and webdev. Of course my apologies if this is being taken into consideration already however in case you didn't catch this or didn't replicate it on your site here are some things I'd suggest. Please consider them as honest feedback
1. Search function seems to have some js conflict - talking about dropdown div for search icon. It disappears after clicking/focusing on search input. So it's not really possible to use it.
2. Lack of redirects. When new forum has been introduced domain change I would suggest implementing some 301 redirects - it's gonna be useful both for users as they still would be able to find topic they have been looking for (coming from search engines) or external links. That would of course mean migrating posts to existing domain. As with the new design/forum all the links throw out 404 error pages which is really frustrating, that is due to lack of posts being migrated and change of subdomain. Simple redirection would be beneficial both for users and let you keep all you're rankings / link juice / SEO exposure within organic search results. Hope that makes sense. It should be very clear and simple thing to implement for your webdevs.
Also some redirections from crydev (simple url rewrite rules) would help users to find lots of useful stuff as it bothered me that many links to very useful posts throw out 404 page so everytime I had to simply change base url in browser manually.
These are my major suggestions and again my apologies if this is intended or being resolved already
Just trying to be helpful here.[Moderation Note: Merged this post/topic with 'New forums and website updates' as it made more sense there as in its own topic. -Nic]
