Have it that the first post is to the top
Posted by zbap [send private reply] at July 14, 2002, 05:21:12 PM As a time saver I think that it will be greatly appreciated. When someone opes a post and they have to wait for the page to load to the very bottom it's kinda hectic. Having the question first enables a user to make the decision to stay or leave, be it that he/she knows the answer already.

Posted by Psion [send private reply] at July 14, 2002, 06:50:28 PM Take a look at the thread listing page.
Posted by Zandalf [send private reply] at July 14, 2002, 07:58:34 PM Nonono, what he's saying is to make the boards a little more like EZBoards, where the most recently altered threads are placed at the top of the forum's list of threads. That way the current topics are right there, and if you're looking for something in the archives, you scroll down a bit.
actually, I'm curious as to why you'd want the individual replies in a thread to be newest to oldest. seems really difficult to follow a thread that way...
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at July 14, 2002, 08:31:30 PM Yeah, I suggested this a while ago, as soon as a new post is entered into a thread, that thread moves to the top of the forum page. That way active threads are at the top and older ones sift to the bottom and eventually off the page
Posted by sphinX [send private reply] at July 14, 2002, 10:46:45 PM Zandalf: it was decided that the newest posts would go to the top of the thread so that one didn't have to scroll all the way through a (sometimes) long thread to get to the most recent posting. I suppose the same logic could well work on the thread listing in the forums.
Posted by Zandalf [send private reply] at July 15, 2002, 06:26:35 PM aah, understood.
yeah, I remember thinking that while I was writing that post, I felt a little hipporcritical ^_^ reverse both ways, because neitehr works, and I like whining!
no, really, I like the abililty to choose which way the individual threads work. I'm just screwed up in that I don't mind scrolling through a thread, but a list of closed topics that I can't do anything about gets on my nerves... :-p
I like the suggestion board ^_^

Posted by buzgub [send private reply] at August 09, 2002, 08:37:07 PM You might like to use http://home.devlocus.org/~buzgub/ie-side.html
It uses the mozilla sidebar (http://www.tpu.org/tea/Sidebar) to provide you with a list of *only* new threads. The navigation bar updates itself every 5 minutes.
This will hopefully become available as a preference sometime in the near-ish future, so that all your browsing of tpu can be done in such an interface.
Posted by Linux_Penguin [send private reply] at August 11, 2002, 09:06:42 PM Can you make it so that if you have it as your preference, the normal sidebar is gone? And can it also be basically the same thing?
