As for me, besides KudoZ, the Forums are the feature I use most often.


NOT the home page forum postings list, because you can\'t even see if answers arrived, and most postings have already disappeared from the home page by the time several important answers arrive;

NOR the \"List Forums\" page because it\'s unpractical to have to choose one of so many forums without knowing what has been posted there recently;

BUT it\'s the \"View more recent forum postings\" page that is the most useful and interesting! Could it not be added to the \"List forums\" link in the \"Communities\" popup menu?

Ciao from Italy


P.S.: I dropped the \"replace\" proposal for sympathy with Ralf, but my experience has taught me that, once postings disappear from the \"View more\" page, they hardly get replies anymore.

-- I just saw that if you edit a posting, your title is canceled except the first 3 words. I agree that shorter titles are better, but…

Please keep the forums list May 20, 2003

Sorry, Martin - for me it\'s exactly the opposite; I always use the forums list. If \"More recent...\" is added, that\'s no problem, of course, but it should not replace the list.

Cheers, Ralf

Keep both lists May 20, 2003

I find both lists useful.

It should be possible to switch between them, or jump to the most useful in any moment.

Currently the most recent posts is available from the Home page only, it should be available from the general list too.

I like the idea.... May 20, 2003

... but like Gianfranco says, I\'d like to keep the old one and have an option to toggle between that view and a \'recent postings\' view.

Many sites will, when you choose \'recent postings\', have a tree set up like in Windows Explorer, so that you will be able to see exactly in which forum the message was listed and you could also click to go to that forum to read all messages in that particular forum.
