I'm thinking of suspending my forums-participation... RRS feed

  • Question

  • because working with that new view makes me more and more angry...

     - Return to a *one-forum-per-section* view and show the forums name as title
     - Return to displaying the last posters name
     - Return to show the *alert sign* in the threads-view, so you can easily distinguish between threads you participate and not
     - Return to include WindowsForms development in the current development choices
     - Return to a non-disgusting (IMO) color scheme (more friendly colors, not looking like an earyly 1980's tax-form (IMO))

    Hint: Forums should look like this: (a glimpse of better times)

  • Even better, give me my TechNet branding back. I miss my full width forum view.

    EDIT: One note - The PowerShell forum didn't show new threads with bold text before the "upgrade" and it STILL doesn't. So much for improvement.

  • ... additionally:

    Please implement some paging logic for long threads.

    See for instance this one:


    And please fix the bug that suppresses threads when switching to the next page. For instance page one goes up to around 11 hours, but page two starts at 21 hours...

  • Mike, did you notice your puny-fied avatar makes it look like a walking alligator?  I thought maybe you were from Florida.    : )

    Would you like a nice wide view of your favorite TechNet ScriptingGuy forum?  Check this example:

    Yeah, my jerbear doesn't look so great in a 5x5 square. Based on the amount of negative feedback I've seen about the name/avatar placement, I imagine this will be adjusted soon (I hope).

    As for the SQL forums CSS (thanks for the tip =] ), I'm sure Microsoft will get around to killing that soon as well. It's nice to actually use most of my screen again though.

  • This new format is completely confusing. I just want to look at one forum at a time. Oh, how I wish this was vBulletin.

  • ... another problem:

    If you choose some forums to display at the right and then open one thread in a new tab or the same page (as single thread view) to reply or so, and then try to go back to the updated selected forums view from this new page, you cant.

    You can only hit the link at the top which will lead you to a view of this particular forum (just one forum selected on the right).

    Also when navigating from one page to another in the threads-view, the browser window stays scrolled to the bottom (FireFox), also there's no "navigate-to-first-page" button/link...
