Forum UI stuff - need opinions(53 posts)
@Lighthouse: I didn't know that. Also wikipedia says RTF was made for cross-platform document interchange in 1987. I didn't know Microsoft made any format for cross-platform use.
On forum ideas, I don't know if it's possible but if well one is writing a reply or editing you could get a notification of a new post that would be cool.
At the moment you make start writing a reply and then submit it and find out the post was already answered.
just a thought as I am reading this topic ... I know that in a normal forum the newest entry goes to the bottom.... but I have noticed that if you are following a thread then you have to scroll all the way there. wouldn't it be more efficient to post the newest post at the top of the first page?
I think he means posts in a thread. It may be more efficient, but I think it would be far too disorienting to newcomers.
Also, perhaps a reply button by each post would be useful?
Hi taybay, I find the reply button like they have them on other Fora very confusing. It breaks the flow of the thread.
Last post on top is not such a bad idea. I think we would get used to it. Smash has a point. Rolling down all the time is kind of annoying.
It's a fairly standard convention to have latest post on the bottom... I've rarely ever seen a forum or comments system that works the other way.
Remember that your posts are also read by many people that don't participate... hopefully when solving a thread for one person the solution is preserved for others to follow.
I don't know if theis is the thread for this but sometimes when I look at a post on the forum someones post will not show up. It shows as a blank post then I have to highlight it and it shows just fine. Make sense? let me know if I should start a new post.
do you know when you are going to implement this super cool new UI? also I had one other suggestion ... Is it possible to put the last few topic that you have participated in some where on the main page of the forum?
