Where is the description section of the game's page? (Forums : Support : Where is the description section of the game's page?) Locked

I have a question about the change on each game's main page. There used to be a fully expanded 'Description' section right under the images slide if I remember correctly. Now it's gone, and I have to click on 'Read more' on the summary to see the full description.

I don't understand what could be the motives behind the change, but since then I haven't been able to use this page for promotion since no sane person would click on that small 'read more' button. Please tell me how to rectify this, or please please please change it back. Please.

We are working on bringing it back, just contemplating what to do as at the moment some descriptions are quite long people are finding it challenging to get to the downloads and other content on the pages

I'm polling people to see what they want here: Moddb.com

Yeah it's kinda weird change. Hope this small read button will be gone by the end of the poll, but anyways, just leave your feedback their as INtense already said

Hey guys,

We have re-added the descriptions by default on profile pages. If your description is less than 450 in height it will load per normal, however if this height limit is exceeded your description will still show but we have now added a "Read More" button which will drop-down the remaining content. We have had to change some positioning settings to accommodate for this feature so if you notice any serious issues regarding the layout of yours or anyone else's description please let us know.

Keen to hear everyone's feedback on this latest change and hopefully it's a step in the right direction for accommodating for the different types of descriptions across the sites.

I appreciate that the description page is at least partially back.

While I would really love to have it the way it was before, if this is the direction you are taking, I would like to ask for more height, and a more visible 'Read more' button. 450 px is not enough.
