Revert back to the old layout on CurseForge.
The new one looks like simplified garbage. Make sure to leave your reasons in the comments. 128 people voted for the old improvement and CurseForge didn't even consider it and just declined it. Starting a new one until they at least make the new site functional.
~Too much white space takes up the screen and is not utilized properly, leading to my next point. Text is too small, making this abundantly obvious. The UI looks like it's trying to fit into a phone screen, a device that doesn't use mods at all. This makes everything look awful from the notifications to the mod pages themselves.
~No text highlights like the old UI. Combined with the small text, it's harder to tell what exactly you're clicking on.
~Toolbar is nonexistent. Why get rid of something that worked perfectly fine? Why is the feedback at the bottom of the page instead of the top where everyone can read it? Are you trying to shield yourselves from any criticism?
~Notifications lead to the wrong version of a file. I want to download the main .jar file of a mod, and I get deof/API file instead of the one that everyone is going to use. Trying to find the right Minecraft version of a mod is insanely difficult to do, unlike in the old layout where it was neat and organized and wasn't shoved away to make room for the 3 files I don't need. This makes the files tab for mods confusing. It needs to stop assuming the mod files I want and just list all the mods like it did before. Files need 5 seconds to download? Why? Now you're purposely trying to irritate everyone using the site.
~If you're designers are somehow attached to this ****** layout, could you at least enable the old design and keep the new one? The old notifications are still active and that's the only part of the site I'm willing to use.
Post any ideas in the comments of issues I missed.
CurseForge is knowingly and purposely trying to **** off it's userbase by refusing to listen to what the users want.
yeah agree, i still now use google to search for mods and packs...its less steps. Also, why did twitch remove the mod support filter for resource texture packs and the filters on the website doesn't work right when trying to apply multiple filters.
I hate the current state of internet websites thinking everything has to be simplified, minimalist garbage. I thought CurseForge was going to be one of the rare sites that didn't follow this stupid trend, but i guess i was wrong.
I would just like to know what suggestions they're declining. They can't decline all of them because the suggestions themselves are asking for fixes to the website to make it easier for the user.
So this got declined again, is there a reason why beside the generic response? Anyway this layout still licks, the "if we wait long enough maybe they will get used to this and not notice." isnt working. There were some good suggestions in here on improving the site and would be up to 250 votes by now. I think the old embedded java version in the twitch app suggestion I posted awhile back was declined by a bot as well.
Hopefully the team will improve curse but so far not much has changed since this revamp.
That's what I've been suggesting to them, but they refuse to upgrade their layout. They think this trash is actually good.
If this hadn't been declined twice, it's vote count probably would've been over 200 by now. Far fewer people vote for a re-posted issue.
This will probably die out at this rate, but let history know I was at least here till the end :P
If they're not going to upgrade to the previous layout again, hopefully they at least improve the new one over time, though I won't hold my breath, given the way they've acted so far.
The CurseForge team running the Minecraft mods page is actively trying to make it a worse page, and people are just going to accept it.
About the download timer, there was this
I swear the bots that run this page only look at the title and none of the recommendations under it.
3 times a charm. Waiting for a human being to respond to this instead of a bot.
