Sorry, this one was a little late.

Big up to critikal, our lord and maker of all you survey.

Got a poll question you want to see on spiked? Let us know. contact mods@spikednation.com with “poll question” in the subject line.

Maybe I'm just too dumb to figure out how to navigate this new site, so can someone explain it to me. 

Where is the front page? Where are all the updated videos?

At the moment the recent videos page is the home page. This will be changed after the site racks up enough front popular videos.

Where do the new posts go? In recent? I couldn't find a submission I made, maybe it was just swarmed by people trying to get points so they can comment?

The first submissions I made took ages to appear. Now it is better, I think, but maybe this varies...

The comment section could use a little work, honestly.  The text boxes open is very odd places when responding and it's difficult to tell which comments are responses and which comments are root level.

I agree with FullAuto here.  It sometimes get confusing figuring out who is responding to whom.

Edit:  For example, could you obviously tell that I was responding to FullAuto's comment?  Or did it look like I was creating a new comment unrelated to his?

I didn't find it hard to tell you were replying to fullauto, but the further along it goes the harder it is to tell. I believe the issue is with the dual text boxes when you hit reply, but I'm not 100% sure.

The replies work better here in the poll than on videos. The reply box opens right below the comment here, but on videos it's down below the "add new comment" section.

I like the layout.

I don't like that when I press "back" on the front page it always updates and returns to the front of the page, I do not think this is a browser problem, I use opera.

I don't like that it is all one page neither.

Is the difference between the frontpage and the "recent content" that "recent" is sorted on latest edit ot comment date?

Will there be a classic recently added/front page set up?

I mean when I pres back TO RETURN TO the frontpage.

I don't like that I can't edit, btw. Not vitally important but it would have saved us all from me commenting on my comment.

Oh, and I don't understand why some are nationals and others are spikers although there is no real difference in points.

Also: I can't post pics or smileys in replies.

Same here.  If I scroll down the continuous list of videos and find one I want to see, click it, watch it, then click the back button, it does not take me back to where I was but back to the top of the list, meaning I have to scroll scroll scroll to get back to where I was.

I imagine it will take some time to become smooth and polished but I'm not sure I understand the reason for the new site, was there really such an issue with boths and spam? I haven't really been active the last year except for browsing gifs and weekly galleries on my phone.

Jut checked my junk e-mail an found this message from spiked nation:

daftcunt,
 
We are sorry!
You have lost the number of points required to be a National.
 
You no longer have access to the areas and privileges of the following role:
 
Role: National
Points Required: 5000.
 
 
Well,
 
I must say: Fuck you spiked nation!
 
Thanks for reading this.

I would have to say that the "points" thing seems very strange to me.  I can understand how it can have benefits but it also has drawbacks, such as making people who have been here for a long time feel as though they are hitting a glass ceiling.

Now I can't submit videos any more. Is this a temp glitch or what happened?

Still:

No smileys

No pictures in comments

Can't edit comments

[@daftcunt] I've promoted your rank to Short Spike for now so you should be able to use images and whatnot. I will hopefully get around to fixing the promotion system soon - obviously it's not working for everyone.

Another "complaint":
 

I find it dangerous that one can edit comments that were replied to already! This will destroy any attempt of a sensible conversation to be had, especially with the berg types or the troll types or the generally insecure!

I agree with your sentiment.  Like if I make an awesome comment that tons of people like and people respond with "I agree" and "definitely" I could then be ultra trolly and go back and write, "Grothesk's 10 inch cock always makes me shit blood the next morning."

Backdraft, that is one of my main gripes.  After so long I have no idea who is replaying to who.  On my screen your "response comment" to mine is lined up directly with mine, as though each and every single one of us are replying to PGFL1988's comment from 07/19/17.
