Hello! Yes, I have returneth!

Because of the success of the other survey, which was about the download browse page and the download page, we also wanted to give the folks who love to check out the discussion forum a chance to give their feedback! This one does include a few misc questions for creators that we'd love to know about as well as community-related questions, although those aren't requirements to answer.

The survey is completely anonymous, so please behave, else we'll have to tell mom!

Here's a linky to that survey: https://goo.gl/forms/3Fyetkwqh9fMXaZt1

If you want to discuss it more in details or have some great feedback to share, here's the thread link to it: FEEDBACK - What I love/hate about the discussion forums
(For the download page one, please check out this thread: The user experience survey - the download pages

Thank you very much if you're participating!

I can't find info on this. Maybe because I am getting old and senile...oh well. I made an error in opening my vacation destinations and only opened one. There is no link to open another one. Is there any way to open a second without having to create a new one?

I did the first survey anonymously (since I forgot to sign in), but I remembered to sign in this time.

Does that make any difference or not?

I still use classic.modthesims.info because the newer version gives me a headache. I'm not the only one.

I commented in the first survey that I'd be happy to test/offer feedback on designs, but could you specifically ask for volunteers to test who have vision-related problems? I know there's one regular on the Sims 2 discussion forum here who has commented about visually triggered seizures that keep her from easily utilizing tumblr, which is an extreme example of vision-related problems.

Hiya @Sunbee !

Just really out of curiosity, but is it like specific colours that make it more difficult regarding looking at the current (non classic) theme? I mean if we know what to focus on maybe it's something we can take into account when developing the site and stuff? I guess it's also that I'd love to know what's better about classic than the current theme, mainly because I personally love the current one for its colour scheme and big images on the download pages, etc. I can see why though on the discussion forums though!

@Starry Might Nah, even if you are signed in the replies will come in anonymously

@Lyralei
I really don't know what it is about the bootstrap theme: I just had my eyes tested a couple months ago, and they're 20-20 and 20-15--it's not my eyes, whatever it is. I use the site for half an hour in bootstrap and I have a pounding headache. I don't know if it's color contrasts or what. It feels blurry, which it isn't actually, but it feels like looking through the eye doctor's corrective lenses that I don't need, which is probably absolutely no help.

@Sunbee
Have you tried Bootstrap -Bluefish? (it's an official choice in the Style menu and works well for me. I have one eye that's 20/30 and one eye that's 20/200, with astigmatism.) The regular Bootstrap was problematic for me as well.

Oh hello, must've gotten my threads mixed up then. Read a comment the other day on the ever-helpful SimSecret from someone who was scared of MTS because it "looks like the 00s". I think they have a valid point, it kinda does. As I was saying in one of the other feedback threads (since there are now at least 4, if I'm keeping track correctly), less is more.

Also I don't remember the story behind the BlueFish theme but it hasn't been the default for very long, and I remember considering it a major visual improvement when I first started using it.

Look out for BRIDGEPORT'88 - it's the hottest new show on YT this season!
Already renewed for '89!

(Oh, and follow me on my Tumblr.)
