My Trip to the Dark Side AKA the "Modern" View

by Mark Singletary 27 replies
I'll play along for a little bit. Not sure how long I'll last until I go into convulsions (already feeling queasy).

Here is a "follow me" as I try to make sense of this.

1. I know what my name is. I also know what I look like so I don't need a profile picture on the upper right to remind me. Reasoning for this feature?

2. I can't see but a few of the forums on the forum dropdown. I can't arrow down or use a mouse to scroll down.

3. When I was typing queasy above I originally misspelt it. Grammarly popped up and when I closed that window my post was gone - nowhere to be seen. I figured I would have to start again and so clicked the what do you want to discuss (title) box and the window with my post came back. It's good it came back but it's bad it totally disappeared.

4. I go to the first thread. There was a post 18 minutes ago. But even though I'm scrolling back and forth I can't find the most recent post. What am I missing? Do I have to click on every reply in the thread?

Added to OP:

5. Looking the most recent threads, we have this order from the top: 5 minutes ago, 1 minute ago. Where I was raised 1 minute ago would be more recent than 5 minutes ago. But maybe I've been wrong all this time.

Update on #5. It is sorted correctly currently. I didn't think to get a screenshot at the time.

6. The automatic subscription for thread openers ignores the settings in our control panel.

More to come, I'm sure.

  • Even though I've temporarily changed my preference to see the view from Satan, when I click on the WF logo link in the top left of the black bar, I go to the classic front page view. Confusing!

  • On the All Topics page when I click Most Recent I don't see the thread that I just barely started. Why wouldn't it show there?

  • My 2nd reply shows before my first reply on the list of replies for the thread. That seems backwards to me.

  • I was going to bring all my replies into the OP but I found out I can't delete my own posts.

  • I've got 4 replies made by myself on the thread list (OP at the top) but it shows that there is one reply. Is that right?

    And furthermore, it ain't got no good English because it says "1 replies".

    Hey Mark.
    Can you post a screenshot so we can discuss it to our engineers?

  • Sure I'll see what I can do after a couple doses of courage. I had to leave the feed because I was afraid I was about to have a stroke.

  • This shows that the posts in the suggestion forum aren't included in recent posts even with all topics chosen.

    Why not have the engineers follow the steps Mark described and see what they come up with?
