Re Thomas Frost's screenshot Jan 11

The screenshot doesn't show the whole picture. The last sentence says: "If you wanted to post a new topic, go back and use the 'Post a new topic' link."


Notice that it didn't say anything about any Rule. I wasn't referring to how the program works, but the rules.

Using "Re: thread title" Jan 11

I don't think that is a good idea, because I've seen quite a few of those and they can look quite messy. It's either Re:re:re:re: .... or just a duplication of Re: topic, but whoever is responding to a thread (or reading it) should already know what it is about.


It seems like a good idea to have the option to title your reply (if you have a purpose for it) or leave it blank (if you don't have a particular reason to title it).

"Inclusive" Jan 12

Actually, removing the reply titles will not break the forums, just making it easier for more people to have a say. While a short description may serve as tags or keywords for better indexing, it should NOT be a must. Furthermore, the stuff often ignores the titles of replies using dummy lines far from summarizing
