Re: Board is screwy??

So I am not seeing this change. Perhaps I am blind, but is change on the "Home" page? If so, was there a last poster column?

I don't know, because I never use the home page. I only use the "All Forums" page as my bookmarked warpath site.

I'd love to know who uses the Home page versus the forums page. I personally much prefer the home page.

Re: Board is screwy??

Personally I prefer the all forums page, since I check this site a lot. I can read the latest in each forum, and then I will click each forum if I want to see more.

To me the Home screen has always been too busy.

Re: Board is screwy??

I hope the old page comes back as well.. This I feel doesn't give me enough information like, who started the post, the last poster, etc.

I also hate how when a thread gets a long.. after like 2 or 3 posts in, there's a banner ad now!

Where they do that at?

Yeah you can reset counters on threads to help with that.. but there are definitely still quirks regardless.. like it not saving last viewed post properly.. so oftentimes if you click that link it'll take you to the end of the thread rather than where you left off

I can't remember if there's an option to save that in the db vs cookies or whatever

I always figured it was spam deletions. Now I'm curious.. I haven't seen this happen on other boards where it wasn't deletions.

I usually come in through the home page but that's because I can usually type faster than open bookmarks or whatever other method of entry to the site. My biggest beef with the home page is that the easiest way to access all forums is via a dropdown menu. To me that's inefficient, not to mention that web crawlers will not follow javascript (which is how the dropdowns are created/displayed). So it takes it following different links for the crawlers to get back to the actual home page and forum groupings to scour all content efficiently. To the average user that won't change much (unless you're like me and don't like dropdowns, or at least longer ones). But as far as search engine optimization, the higher up the page the better.. but if it's not able to be crawled, not so good.

spammers don't get through often enough to have significant deletions from them
