    Re: Features - Five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site

    Keep it coming guys, good work

    Comments:
    The screenshot used doesn't tally with the current layout - bottom icons etc in different order:
    .
    How do new visitors know what the vault icon looks like? It's mentioned on the /vault/ page but not shown. (I know but others might not.)
    Finally, could we have a link to the vault in the My Hexus page please?
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Loving the Vault and In-Line Commenting, keep up the good work

    Noticed the In-Line commenting is ordered in reverse... could we keep it the same as the forums please?

    Re: Features - Five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site

    I've said it on twitter, and I'll say it hear - was kind of expecting to be underwhelmed when DR tweeted that there was a great new "ZOMG" feature coming. Then I started playing with Vault, and went "Oooooooh!" Love the idea.

    Don't know how much I'll use it mind - if I don't have time to read stuff I tend not to be on Hexus anyway, but we'll see how it goes! I suspect I'll use it more to bookmark reviews and things that I might want to refer back to when on the forums - I'm forever having to search for a CPU or GPU review when someone asks about comparitive performance, and the valut will lete me store away the most useful ones for easy reference.

    OK, so maybe I do know how much I will use it

    Just had a quick look at the new mobile site on my phone aswell. Much much easier to use so thats very welcome!

    No link to the forum though, does that mean we are going to see a tapatalk integration?

    Re: Features - Five ways to make the most of the new HEXUS site

    Well done guys, when you updated the site i did think it was turning for the worse! However after looking at it for a bit it really is ALOT better although i would make the suggestion it is quite graphic heavy with adverts with regard to the myhexus box its surrounded by images/ads but thats a personal preference to have stuff like that out of the way(id rather have it in a tab like the left side).

    Only just read this so nice to know about these features, vault is incredibly useful (yet to use though hehe) as i always tend to be opening 7 tabs to see the newest stories and read one by one but sometimes i need to reference it the next day or something and so being able to find it easily is a great addition. I also love the new mobile site, im so glad you havent gone down the terrible road of FORCING mobile users to use the mobile site, i generally dislike most mobile websites unless im out and about without wifi as my 3g is terrible speeds! So nice to have the choice and both the main and mobile site work well on my optimus 2x so good work guys!.

    Keep it up .

    We are never going to upgrade the forums or make any improvements.
