  • New Updates to SimplePlan.com
    March 28, 2012

    Hey everyone, 

    We've updated SimplePlan.com to a new platform! The great news is our new platform gives us more flexibility to make improvements and add new features to SimplePlan.com faster than ever.

    Below are details on what you need to do to access your SimplePlan.com account on the upgraded site and what’s different as a result of the changes.

    Don't worry we have your existing profiles saved!
    1) To access your SimplePlan.com account, go to the login page and follow the instructions.
    2) Here are some differences as a result of the changes:

    So What's New? SimplePlan.com still looks the same

    First off, you'll see that the style of the site hasn't changed, and things look the same. This is intentional. All the changes and upgrades are happening behind the scenes. It does mean it affects some functionality of the site such as:

    User comments on profile walls have temporarily been disabled

    At this time you will not be able write or receive comments on your user profile wall. We know this is going to be missed, and we promise to bring this functionality and more back to SimplePlan.com in short order.

    Don’t worry – we saved your old profile comments and will restore them ASAP. The discussion boards are still fully functional and can be used for site communication with other members.

    As always, please report spam or other flag-worthy content to the WebCrew. You can do it on this Spam Report thread.
     

    Logging in with Facebook is easier than ever, and now you can login with Twitter too!

    Connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts if you haven’t already. To do so, hover over your username in the upper right, and click Edit Profile. Then click the Social Publishing tab.


    Uploading videos isn’t just for YouTube any more!

    You can still post your favorite concert footage of Simple Plan to the Fan Videos section, and now you can use more sites – like Vimeo and TwitVid


    Comment and forum activity history

    Comment and forum activity from your user profile pages are now removed. We felt like these created messy and long scrolling pages.  Please let us know if you strongly disagree with this decision and did find this feature useful and we will discuss adding it back.

    We're looking forward to keeping the site running for a long, long time. These changes are a huge step to doing just that, and soon we’ll have much bigger and better things to share.

    Love,
    SimplePlan.com WebCrew

Oh I agree with Veronicahere! The site is really slow when I come on and I didn't have this problem before. I hope this can get fixed.

Sorry, I don't like it very much because is slower and I have a lot of problems with the add of photos...

I don't mind most of the new changes I've noticed so far. I really haven't noticed many but there a few things I dislike. I don't really like the comment box and I don't like that our profile pics are a lot smaller than before. Can they go back to the original size? I'd also like to see the name of the person who comments first instead of the date and time. Oh and can you please put back how much comments we have posted and how many views our profile has gotten back on our profile page? I like to see who is a regular SP fan to the site and I can tell by how much comments they have posted. Well that's at least one way to know.

i dont like this new platform!!! :/
frankie_2's picture

I would like to see my previous comments on posts. Maybe move it somewhere in our profile, put it in a tab so we won't be needing to scroll down. Current UI is adoptable but I would like to see the things I used to see before. Thanks for upgrading, it doesn't take long to load anymore! :) Cheers!
