3 Stars and a Wish for nu-TES

    Well, more than 3 stars, and more than one wish. Five of each.

    A five star site!

    • It looks good
    • It is fast
    • It is easy
    • It is fun
    • There's great functionality. Is this the word that I mean? There are loads of things that I didn't know that I needed until the nu-TES provided them. These could easily make a whole raft of extra stars

    Overall it is a pretty impressive re-vamp.


    5 wishes

    • Visible markers for conversations and alerts, say a yellow dot on the top RH avatar
    • Thumbs up emoticon
    • Back to Top and Back to Forum at bottom of every page
    • A Contact us on top menu, giving details of the TES.Community@tesglobal.com e-mail
    • Not to lose formatting - especially of links - when you copy and paste

    OVERALL I am very happy with the site. Many thanks to those who commissioned, developed, implemented and are still tweaking the nu-TES

    Best wishes

    My schools does 2 stars and a wish. So...

    [1st star] Being able to quote without having to enter "rich formatting"
    [2nd star] Easier and quicker to navigate than the previous version
    [Wish] Option to view "New posts" in just the forums I watch, rather than across the whole site

    * Being able to save drafts
    * Seeing that more messages have been posted as you type into the reply box
    * Additional features such as permalinks and spoilers
    * Multi-quotes
    * The friendlier community spirit that seems to have been generated by the change
    * Tagging
    (That's 6 stars I know! :D)

    Wishes - Pretty much the same as Theo! :)

    We definitely need a clearer indicator that conversations or alerts are available

    Bottom right hand corner, just above the thick black line. There's a blue box with a little white arrow and the word 'Top'.

    Is that arrow big enough? @Spiritwalkerness :D
