(yes, they atually do test before they go live)
They really screwed-up on that one then (sorry no smiley, you know my feelings on those smilies).
Actually, I have something positive to say about this new forum. I just clicked on my own profile and then clicked on “View all posts by this member”, and the way it categorised the search automatically was absolutely first class, really nice! Rather than just list in chronological order, it separated my posts into the threads I’ve been posting in, and I can even see at a glance how many posts I made in each thread because they get stacked under the title of each thread.
Yup, I think that’s very nice (good design), which makes it all the more puzzling that we don’t have such basics as being able to get back to the Bryce Index from the top and bottom of a thread. It’s as if someone who understands this stuff went on holiday and let a novice take over for a while, and they forgot about that part.
So, I take back a bit of what I said, but the part about the missing essentials is still very relevant for comfortable use of the forum.
