- Development of the site
sadexpunk: some of that is there already, just in a different form.
hyperlinks to ‘my classifieds’, ‘my chat forum’ etc etc
Just go to you profile page and you can see every thread you have replied to and whether it has been replied to since.
maybe a way of tagging threads you want to keep an eye on?
Every thread has an "RSS feed for this topic" so you can subscribe to individual threads.
the way the threads are listed, so the threads stay where they were. or at least the option to choose how to display threads again. thats my main problem with it at the mo. i much prefer the way i used to be able to have it
I’m quite surprised at this. I thought nearly everyone has "Sort By Last Post" set on the old forum, which is the same as how it lists them now.
Sorting by when the post was first made means you miss the interesting threads that last multiple days and get 100+ posts. And you don’t notice when someone finally gives a reply to a thread from last week.Posted 9 years agosadexpunkSubscriber
whoops looks like ive not been concentrating properly 🙂
thanks for pointing those out chaps.
graham, i thought it was the other way round, and only a few had it set to sort by last post 🙂
personally, i far prefer the threads staying in the order they were posted. mebbes just me tho. be nice for the option anyways 🙂Posted 9 years agoaracerSubscriber
Would be an "interesting" exercise to see if you could determine who had it set for which option. I’d imagine the "latest topic" people would only post near the start of threads, and not be contributing much later on in the threads which lasted days. Would be far more likely though to post the first reply to an oldish topic…Posted 9 years agoCountZeroMember
Some of us browse on here who can’t right-click, so opening a new window is very useful. The reason being I don’t have a mouse on this thing, and I can’t be arsed to dig the laptop out. Otherwise I’m loving the site as it is, and I’m full of respect for all of you who’ve got it back up and running so quickly. Well done.Posted 9 years agofishaMember
in terms of the old data, rather than just having it merged into this one, why not simply have it as a read-only seperate database altogether. That way you can still get to the old information, but you’re not worrying about merging it all in seamlessly.
Apply a fierce limit on how many can query it at anytime, and a short autologout. If there is too many users, then just tell em to come back later.Posted 9 years agowwaswasSubscriber
fisha – I think the biggest reason for the db merger was for SEO purposes – holdign it as a separate db etc is likely to mean the rankings are affected for the site as a whole – it’s already drifted down a bit on some google searches.
no one who actually posts on here looks back more than 2 pages from the front for information anyway, they just post a new topic…Posted 9 years ago
