Being able to post is a like? Haha, you can quote people though. I think it's in the advanced reply.
- Being able to center text. SO much better than having to use little dots and coloring them black.
- Private messages!
- Friends lists, pretty swanky.
- Embedded pictures and videos
- The Events feature seems pretty cool and could be great for games or user created contests like Rogue's Hero HQ awards or maybe a fan fic/art contest
- The new smileys. They just don't look very good, too basic, I guess.
- no fan art/fic section yet. (It's coming though, I'm guessing).

all of my stats are gone that is a definet dislike, I had had my hero hq account for ever and have been getting back on to ramp up for the Amazing Spiderman and it doesn't look like I have VIP status anylonger and I think my profile was changed although atleast my gamertag for xbox and PS3 are still linked so that is a like!!! this new site looks really cool to that is a like as soon as the bugs are all tweaked out lol

Some of the new features, like PMs, and some of the other ones that I haven't tried out yet, like events and ideas, might be cool, too.
Basically, the new boxes for posts are generally pretty cool. Different font choices and all of that is pretty cool. And it's way easier to copy and paste stuff I've written from Word, since it keeps the formatting from word now.
Not having all the old threads, though that's supposed to change eventually.
A couple of weird bugs and design quirks. One is that pressing enter doesn't really work to bring me to the next line, unless I hold it down to go down multiple lines. Maybe it's an Internet Explorer issue, haven't checked yet. The other is when I go to my profile, it brings me to the main Activision forum, and it's a pain to get back to Hero HQ. Some type of shortcut to get back would be nice.

First to Jadryx: Thanks for posting this! This is a great thread and we'll be checking up on it.
As to the other stuff: The migration isn't complete yet, but I can say that we're working on ways to improve the navigation (near future), and that all the old forum content will be re-populated (medium to farther future). Once that happens, everyone who had previous content will see their points rise quite a bit.
One thing that probably isn't coming back is "tiers" of avatars. Under this forum framework, everyone shares the same pool of avatars, even the Admins. That said, nothing's impossible as we move forward. Also, we may be able to add additional avatars to the pool, so fav avatars from the past could return (usuable for everyone).
RE: the Activision Redirect: Yup, this is a known issue and the tech folks are working on it. Note: if you ever find yourself in a section of these forums and suddenly your ability to post or comment is missing, check that your URL is still starting with "community.herohq.com." If it's changed to "community.activision.com," just replace Activision with HeroHQ, hit "enter', and you'll be good.

Can you give us an idea on what you mean with medium to farther future? It'd be helpful to know whether it's worth making/remaking a bunch of threads if it's gonna be a few months before everything is back.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 6, 2012 12:52 PM (in response to Hawkeye)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
Honestly, not sure. Basically it's on the "this is gonna happen" list, but well after everything else. Considering that the threads will already be dated, I'd go ahead and re-start any threads you want to see; we'll deal with the Merge-Or-Not questions later.

Ah, thanks for the update!

Thanks! That's super helpful info, and presented in a really easy-to-use way.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 10, 2012 1:48 PM (in response to NewsLad)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
That was a very easy way to explain! I like it. It would be great if we could get something like that for some of the other new features (or explanations on how to do certain things that are different than they were at the old HQ) Just some kind of user guide or orientation.
For example - I knew how to put in a hyperlink at the old HQ but now I have no clue.
Also - are there new posting guidelines for pictures and video now that we can post that type of stuff? (obviously keeping things family friendly)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2012 10:50 AM (in response to Jadryx)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
Good idea, we'll look into whipping some of those up. Aside from hyperlinking, what else are you curious about?
RE: Guidelines, nothing yet aside from common sense. We'll make formal rules when the need for them becomes obvious (inevitable, but hasn't happened JUST yet!).
Currently Being ModeratedMay 23, 2012 7:48 AM (in response to NewsLad)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
I'm curious about some of the new features (EX - the "your stuff" section. What are events and ideas? A few of the changes in preferences like the difference between "flat" and "threaded") I haven't noticed a lot of other differences but I'm sure I'll come across a few as I am on the site more.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 24, 2012 8:33 PM (in response to Jadryx)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
I think ideas are used for something similiar missions. I was messing around with it once and somehow ended up on the James Bond Legends forum and the Idea feature was used in a Create-Your-Own-Bond villain thing, haha. Events are for like scheduling a get together, like if a bunch of people want to get together to play MUA2 some weekend. I'm sure News Lad could explain this stuff better though, it's just what I've come up with from messing around with it, haha.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 20, 2012 12:28 PM (in response to Jadryx)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
I just dropped in and everything's different. I couldn't even have my original name! I'm confused...

PM me with the e-mail you had on your account for the old forums and your original Username, we'll see what's up.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 13, 2013 10:07 PM (in response to Jadryx)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
is there a code to unlock the black suit spiderman edge of time ?
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2013 11:11 AM (in response to mrsinister707)Re: What do you like/dislike about the new Hero HQ?
That's probably a question for the Edge of Time section of the forums. Are you referring to the Toxin suit? If so, the code is "innerspider".
There are two other suits you can get with the codes "laststand" and "coldhearted".
Also, be sure to check out Arena Mode: "twospidersenter". Have fun!
