We are happy you joined our Graphisoft Community!
Bearing in mind that we freshly launched this platform, your feedback is crucial to keep improving our community.
Would you please share your impressions, comments, suggestions?
It really adds so much visual clutter.
Employees and mods need to stand out, thats it. And maybe total new users. But atleast the bot problem might be fixed with the GSID-tied login now.
Everyone should by now have received their proper titles based on their posts count. Those "Beginner" and "Newcomer" values were given to people by the system by default but after the Archicad Talk accounts were linked, the titles were re-assigned based on that. So all should be good by now.
Rest assured you are in good company - same here.
Anyway, this relegation business seems rather odd... any official comments regarding this?
I guess the forum software took a bit of time to update your Ranks after linking your Archicad Talk profiles. You guys are now Participant, Booster, and Participant, respectively, so it is OK now.
I appear to have deleted one of your posts.
It was showing twice so I thought I would clean up and delete one of them.
However both seem to be gone.
I am still learning as a Moderator what all the new functions are.
Fortunately I have an e-mail of it - so here it is.

This badge system is a silly joke. Don't you guys have some useful work to do? I guess we'd like to know who's employed by Graphisoft, who's an admin, and who's a moderator. We others are simply The Rest!
@Gordana Radonic There is a return to top of page button after the last post in the page footers. Please can we make this float so when I get bored of scrolling I can get back to the headers quickly?
It would also be handy when viewing old to new that we can GOTO the last post.
Edit: Just realised Home & End keys work, but the click options would still be more intuitive.
Regarding the display concern, in the Community, we have an option to switch to Linear mode by going into My settings section (click on your avatar at the top right corner).
Here, under Preferences > Display, we can select Linear format.
We can customize it further by clicking the Linear Layout on the left column.
I hope it will help you with browsing our new Community!
Thank you very much!

@SeRohde Agree. This is in part a result of the migration process apparently ... and the default CSS/HTML for signatures.
If you edit your signature from your profile... you can place the content between <small> and </small> tags to at least make the font smaller, which makes it stand out less. Any HTML tags can be used there.
A global change to signature appearance would be helpful, though, as so many users will either not edit their signatures... or will not migrate to this platform, leaving their signatures as they last appeared on the old forum platform. Hoping that @Gordana Radonic and team might be able to do that.
I can confirm that this doesn't work, Karl. Seems like mods are indeed getting the special treatment!
But yeah, in general the CSS of this forum is just a joke.
Shouldn´t the time of the last post be shown somewhere? Now it shows the time of the original post.
Also, is there a way to go directly to the first unread post when you click a thread? Right now it takes me to the first post.
I´ll stop spamming this for a while 😶
Why does Graphisoft think that it can do everything itself without consultation with its users? All the users of the Architalk forum are probably users of other forum platforms and know what the pro and cons of forums are. Why was there no consultation as to which would be the best forum platform to migrate to? Platforms like Discord have already gone through all these issues and created a platform that works for forum users. Why does Graphisoft think it can do a better job on its own? Clearly it can't if we are going by the replies in this Forum. These are not petty little issues being made by Mr Grumpy, Some of these issues are actually good features of the Architalk platform that have been removed! Seriously!
Don't get me wrong I am pleased that Graphisoft is finally working at improving the communication with its users, it is a good thing. BUT it seems that the whole process has been undertaken with the same ethos that Graphisoft has had for the last 2 decades in so much as it is just doing what it thinks is best without engaging with its users and working together towards a common goal.
If this Forum isn't fixed to align with users requirements you will find that engagement will drop as users find other avenues/forums to communicate on.
