The box is just too small. Would it be possible to add a few lines to it? Thanks in advance!

KudoZ answer box or ask the asker box? Nov 29, 2005

Hi Mikhail,

I am wondering if you don't mean the 'ask the asker' box. The KudoZ answer box seems almost infinite to me. Some answers go on and on, almost forever!

Gayle

No Nov 29, 2005

No, I am indeed talking about the little TEXT BOX where you can type your answer. Not the **text field** which holds the text you've already typed but the text box for typing your answer and any additions to it. It fits a measly 5 lines. For instance, the text box I'm typing in now is at least 25 lines long, so 90% of the time I can see my whole post as I am typing it. In Kudoz it's not that way, and it's extremely annoying.

Box size Nov 29, 2005

Oh, I see, Mikhail. Even though the answer can be very long, you can only see a few lines at a time. I didn't understand, sorry. I agree that it is annoying to have such a small window to type in, and to have to scroll back and forth to see what has already been typed. This is the right forum that type of question, I did change the forum before, so Henry should see this. He is the moderator for this forum.

I agree with Mikhail Nov 30, 2005

Your suggestion sounds very good Mikhail. Indeed, for the sake of convenience the answer box should be able to display several lines at once. I think a box half as big as the topic body box within which I am writing now will do.
The answer box of that size will facilitate us in checking and editing our reply.

Indeed, what is good for forum posts is good for KudoZ answers.

I was thinking about this same thing recently when I was writing a lengthy "Neutral" comment to another member's answer, detailing my thoughts on the matter. More lines in all the KudoZ dialogs would be great.

Thanks for all the votes. I'm not a web programmer but I'm pretty sure it's not too diffucult a change to implement.

Thanks in advance to Proz staff for listeningicon_smile.gif
