Treeview list of a thread RRS feed

All replies

  • Especially when there is more than one reply since the last time checked, and they are in different areas. The "Last Reply" link only gets one.

    When it gets to big i search for "ago". It sort of works. :)

  • Naom:
    Although I think good threading information is important, I just do not find the threaded view in these forums helpful, and I have stopped using it. The basic problem is that the thread display is showing the actual posts, rather than the list of posters (as in most NNTP readers), and it becomes unwieldy for long threads (as you observe).

    I think a much better scheme would be to have each response post refer (in its header) to the post it is responding to (username and post time). There is plenty of empty space in the current post header for this information.

    Then we could get rid of the threaded view, and the newest replies could appear together at the bottom.
