Can we get a dark mode please? This forum is blindingly white. 

 

ThinkPads are black. The forums should at least have a black option.

+1! On a quick reply, it's light grey on white!!! That won't be appreciated by most... I imagine a lot of people will hate this color choice! More comments, good or bad, to follow :-) Martin

Pin move info sitewide

2020-02-22, 4:37 AM

Hi,

I know many will wonder where their posts are, and why they are gone. I think pinning an explanation post sitewide will prevent many "Why was my post deleted?" posts from polluting the forums.

 

Thanks for your time!

Martin

Some comments on the visual appearance of the message list:

 

  • the blue/gray/blue/gray alternating icon color on the left of messages does nothing for me. Please choose one color for unread-posts icons  (blue and one for read posts (gray?)
  • On that note: Make it clearer which posts are unread. I can't see the difference atm, is there any?
  • The in-line green checkmark in front of solved posts should be on the same line as the post title. Right now it's one line above

 

Side note: this editing box froze after the first bullet, and right now I can't end this bullet list with the keyboard. I had to use the toolbar to 'escape the bullets'. 

 

Quite a bit of editor weirdness going on, like an extra lower-case m appearing before the M in "On that note: Make" after editing the post, enters not showing until after hitting 'submit' and much more!  I hope lots of improvements are coming soon!

One more on the message list: the tags are way too prominent. Consider not even showing the tags in the message list. 

 

Side note: you can now past images from your clipboard straight into a post, without having to upload. Awesome!!

Request: imo tapping a thread with unread posts should jump straight to the first unread post. I do appreciate that we can do this by tapping the little number showing how many unread posts there are, but I think it's more common on forums to at least have the thread title link to the first unread post.

Another comment: I can't find the "Mark all posts as read" button. 

 

Below an example of how the 'solved' checkmarks placement looks on my browser (Edge Chromium). I think those should be in front of the post title. Related: Note that the numbers on the right are not vertically centered.

Vote: do away with the large light blue Reply / Quick Reply / Submit buttons, and make them text links. 

 

Users are on the forum first and foremost to read messages, not to view tags / buttons / signatures. 

 

Look at the example below. The actual message is gray, and way smaller than the giant buttons. Counter example below from some other forum (removed the avatar stuff on the left)t. The Reply option does have a small icon, but nothing as obtrusive as the giant reply boxes here.
