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?
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.
