We, the undersigned, petition Betfair, to return back to the old Betfair Forum interface or at least implement the basic simplistic features onto the new one which made the old one so great!
- A scroll bar for the topics area, why make it hard to go from one area to another?
- The ability to be able to constantly refresh a page, with that instant feel to it. The forum page only, not including the top frame where our balance and various other tabs are. This method is far too slow.
- Remove the speech bubbles, waste of space! Please allow us to read a dozen messages without requiring to scroll.
- Generally make the feel of the forum quick, the new one feels and is so chronically slow! This includes posting, generally browsing from page to page and refreshing.
Other flaws, which you have already recognized in your 'Known Issues' post.
- Fixing the reply screen, bold, italics, smileys etc vanishing/displayed wrong.
- Hitting refresh bumps you down to the message, and thus meaning you having to scroll back up to hit refresh/reply again. Annoying.
We don't want to have a kick at you for the sake of it, but we are genuinely annoyed, bewildered and frustrated at this seemingly pointless change so sort it. Yeah?
