Would you want this option if it's possible?

Is it possible to have the little page icon next to the date change to yellow on new posts since your last visit? This is on each individual post inside the thread.

 

 

Just makes it easier when threads get big and popular.

 

 

Thanks.

Er... Why do you find it even remotely confusing to locate new posts within a thread? They're right ther on the end - not interspersed throughout it.

 

Unless you have basic view on or something? I confess I only use the standard one.

 

 

 

Oh. Maybe you mean for when things get edited?

Doesn't anyone visit any other forums?

 

It's not confusing and I don't browse each thread to find new posts.

 

It's just an indicator on each post that is new. It's not important, I'm just curious why this forum doesn't have all the basic features enabled.

Yes, I do go to other fora. I simply do not understand what you're trying to achieve.

 

When you look at the forum list, those with new posts are indicated with a different 'O'. When you load a forum, those threads with new posts are indicated by both a different icon beside the title, and a little orange-ish box which will take you straight to the last post (or where you last read up to). And those are just the defaut way of looking at things.

 

How does what you suggested bring anything new to the party? What are you trying to do that isn't already covered?

Forget it it's not important for you.

 

 

 

But here-

*White page* Today, 09:23 AM

 

would be a yellow page if it's a new post. INSIDE THE THREAD!!!!

 

 

You open a thread and it takes you directly to the last post of the whole thread. This let's you skim back up the thread to the first post that is new to you easily without reading everyone's replies first.

But it already tells you if there is a new post?

There are icons on the left of the page.

The icon next to the thread is dark when there are new posts.

The icon next to the thread goes lighter/transparent when there are no new posts.

 

Isn't that basically what you want??

Click the orange box next to a thread name and it will take you to the last post you read...even if its page 5 of 8 in a thread.

Short answer is dev time is hard to come by; you haven't really given a good reason why it needs to be spent replicating functionality that is already present :

It's actually a quick 2 beat drum roll. Not a rim shot. A rim shot is where a drumstick is hitting the side rim or head of a drum.

 

You can never get too much ignorance on the internet.

 

Forgive me for sounding like a know it all. This is my first doing it I swear.

:P
