: : Here are some suggestions for improvement:
: : - Perhaps it is best to show the thread above the message edit box
: : instead of in it.
: I think if replying to parts of the message (like I am here) then
: it's useful to have it quoted. I think that's why we retained the
: behavior (well, the forum upgrades are really visual more than
: internals, since we re-did the internals not so long ago).
: Maybe better would be to have it displayed separately, and then a
: "quote" button to put it into the box, quoted, if you want to write
: such a reply? That would seem to handle both cases, though would
: possibly complicate things a little...
: : - I found the "Latest Posts"/"Latest Threads" a bit far off. It
: : might be more logical to switch the individual boards and the
: : "Latest Posts"/"Latest Threads" around in the menu.
: Hmm, that's an interesting point; I'm inclined to do this. Good
: : Along the same lines, perhaps it is also helpful to place a button for
: : the "Latest Posts"/"Latest Threads" in the top of the forums (around
: : the "How to create your first post!")
: Perhaps, yes. Though part of me wonders, now we have the drop-down
: to jump straight to a forum of interest, whether many people will
: use the forum start page at all...
: : One of the features of the original board, which I found the best,
: : was lost in the present incantation: Latest Posts for the Favorite
: : Boards. Could that also be added in the new design?
: It's kinda still here today (both on the live forum and in the
: re-design). Go to any forum, then there is a drop-down that reads
: "This Forum" (with the word On next to it, in the settings area). On
: that, you have a favorites option, to see posts from all your
: favorite forums. However, given how little it is used (I just
: discovered and fixed a bug where it crashed if you are not logged
: in, which nobody else had triggered yet), there's certainly a good
: argument for making something like this more visible. We'll take a
: look at doing something better.
: Thanks for the feedback - I suspect we'll do the switch of the
: latest posts etc to the top of the list for the launch, then look
: into the other issues shortly afterwards.
In regard to the latest posts on favorite boards: Is it possible to make it a direct link? I had Heaven bookmarked to that list. In this version it is not possible to bookmark the latest posts on favorite boards.
For moderators perhaps a bookmarkable page, which shows the latest posts on the moderated boards (similar to the fav. boards)?
