Suggestions to improve the forum/Any Questions/Complaints

Post  Admin on Sun 17 Aug 2014, 9:23 pm

A section for members to post their suggestions or questions, and hopefully very few complaints.

Mods will endeavour to check daily if possible to answer here.

This is in no way a complaint, but does anyone else think that accessing the moving list of topics on the portal, is a bit like trying to get your luggage off the airport conveyer belt Very Happy Very Happy

Yes, it`s like trying to spear a tiddler. I pity the forumites with Parkinsons.
I reckon it`s something we`ll have to get used to as it`s the design of the forum.

I think that the format can be changed to a static list.

I shall put the suggestion to the boss!

Sorry but I am totally lost as to what you are asking Freedom.  Are we talking about the scrolling latest posts on the portal page......if so, when you hover over the line you want it stops scrolling.

I personally have never used that page - it is much easier to keep to the HOME page  and just look out for the latest posts with a red icon square next to them the squares are usually clear)  showing you that they are new and you haven't read them yet.

I just use the "View posts since last visit" function and that way I always get the latest posts that I haven't read yet, nicely sorted by thread, each time I pop in. I may miss a few, I suppose. But it does keep me on top of everything.

Yes, that is the list I - and the others - meant.

The "hover" tip is useful, thank you. I'm still learning!

Indeed, Admin. I always read via "Home" and the colour indication of unread comments is highly effective. It took me 2 seconds to get to this thread e.g.

The forum running very slow at the moment, nothing to do with me, I think forumotion are updating things....it happens sometimes.  Although it may be my computer overheating again, that happens too!

Would it be possible for and admin or moderator to maintain a locked sticky topic at the top of the "trial" section simply to list any confirmed next trial dates & details please?
That way we can have a definitive reference and not lose it in an ongoing topic.

Since I have no patience, I skip "Portal" and go straight to "Home", were all threads and topics, which contain new posts are nicely colour-coded, as well the member who has place the last post Smile

I seem to have problems pasting pictures on this forum. Never had problems before doing so. Anybody else experienced the same?

I'm far from an I.T whizz, so don't understand why I cant.

Is anyone having problems with the portal? When I click on a thread, it takes me to the App Store!

Maybe have a section of Questions and Answers.

Some people might have questions regarding any aspect of this case, but rather than starting a new topic which might not warrant a full on discussion, It would be good just to have a Q and A thread / section, so any questions could be answered with just the 1 or several responses. Then move onto the next Q etc etc...

New members and people late to the case will have lots of questions no doubt but maybe put off by starting there own topic / thread or feel other threads are not relevant to the question they would like to know the answer to so they won't post anything.

Just a thought anyway admin / mods....
