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?
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 😶
Hi all, well, who ever has access to the forum backend,
Since the Forum Related Issues sub is gone, I will put this here...
EDIT 2: Found the buried What's New sub (inconsistent title) with Gordana's posts, but given the other things in there, it looks confused as well... There is also no option to move my own thread? Though it doe not really belong there either...
What is the difference between the "Design => GDL" and "Developer => GDL". There is also "Design => Library" and "Developer => Library" though I guess that could be differentiated by queries regarding the default libraries and custom libraries.
EDIT: Ok... since posting this, I have realised that the Label List on the right side of each sub-forum is generated by the user assigned labels / tags on threads... This explains the duplication of labels between sub-forums and points to an issue that will most likely create confusion, more so since each sub no longer has a description below it regarding it's content and threads can be created without ever setting foot in them.
Are there label tiers? Is the label input when writing a post smart? Labels should probably be listed together with each post on the threads list.
ps. Any chance we can get the Post Preview function back? Preview is at the top right of text box as pointed out by Vistasp
pss. Does regional spelling make a difference with labels? ie. Not English (US)
These should also be moderated before they are added to keep them relevant and to prevent pollution.
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.
