I echo the above sentiments.

And I love the new yellow and blue symbols. :) Is there a reason though that there are so many different ones instead of just one for unread and one for read?

Thanks.

Re Topic Symbols:
Stickys and announcements have the classic symbol.
Normal topics have the '89 batsymbol.
'Hot' topics have the Gotham Knights batsymbol.
Locked topics are all Knightsend.
Moved topics are all Knightfall.
Announcements are all KnightQuest.

I was wondering if we were going to get the topics back in the Last Post part of the forum?
It was kinda helpful to see the topic last spoken into rather then just the username.
No big deal if not, I was just wondering if that was coming back!

So far the forum is looking better, more hip and reputable, i like it so far.

But theres some things i've seen it need improving (i know its not done yet im just giving some heads up)

-First the icons from the topic, some are blue, red, orange, yellow, and with different bats, what is what? before it was red for topics with unseen replies and i think yellow for an already seen with no new replies. I think all those icons are unnecesary and confusing.
-The forum moves a bit slow.
-I cant see at the forum index at the right, like before, the latest topic discussed with their appropriate author.

Again, not complaining, just giving some head ups, and I would like to make a suggestion, make the background grey or dark, its too bright like it is now.

Cheers. :batman2:

The forum seems to be faster for me than before, so that may be your Internet connection.

I haven't looked at the last topic listed yet for the sake of spoilers. I'm currently considering whether it's worth bringing them back or not, as during the lead up to Origins we had to avoid putting spoilers in topic titles. That was fine for people that wanted to avoid spoilers, but not for others. 'Fourth Assassin Leaked' isn't exactly the most helpful topic title. Without them on the front page we can have the best of both worlds.

Yeah, the site's much speedier for me now. Only bug I've encountered so far is when you add to a post and you were the last poster on the thread - your previous message duplicates.

You've probably noticed that there are a few more ads around the site.
Obviously, these are to try to build some revenue so that we can buy more prizes for site competitions. The ads we put on will always be relevant to the community; namely Batman and Arkham goods only.

If you're going to preorder Arkham Knight through amazon anyway, it would be appreciated if you do so via the widget at the bottom of the news page. It won't cost you any more, but amazon will cut us a very small percentage.

Cheers.

Odd. I'll look into it when I get the chance.

Well thanks to take the time to respond, but isnt all that symbol thing unnecesary complicated? im not against change but if it wasnt broken why fix it?

It seems like it was indeed my internet connection, sorry about that.
And about the bright background?
Thanks.

It's still very simple. If it's blue, you've read it. If it isn't, you haven't. There is just added information now for those who want it.

No, the background's colour scheme is staying.

The observant amongst you will have noticed that there is now a YouTube link at the top of the page, as well as on the Social Media menu on the news page.

This is because we are getting ready for the PS4's new software update which will allow us to share gameplay videos directly to YouTube. We feel that this will be a great way of sharing Arkham Knight with our community.

We are not looking to go into competition with BatmanArkhamVideos as a source of news on YouTube. We will still be using his videos in large part for ArkhamverseTV and we won't be posting news videos. Our channel will be purely for trailers and user made challenge map footage. We will let people know how they can share their own footage with us so that we can post it on YouTube closer to the game's release.

We're also looking into posting our podcasts on the YouTube channel with enhanced features (if we talk about a screenshot, we can show it; if we play an audio clip, we can show the video too). However, Episode 7 of the ArkhamCast will be posted up first as a test of how long it takes to render and upload with just a static image.

Ooo, I'm liking the sound of this. I just subscribed to the channel, I'm looking forward to seeing what videos you'll be posting in the future :)
