The old one though more limited - this is a journey of a 1000 miles to get to where you want to bw ( or at least to where you think you want to bw?)

Re: Shares chat

Is it just me or does anybody else find this new "chat" community forum awful?

 

I like the learn section but the chat itself is not very user friendly. I prefer to see chats in once screen, not going back and forth into topics. You tend to miss stuff... IMO

Re: Shares chat

Thanks for the feedback.

 

Do you mean that you do not like the divisions under the Talk section such as 'beginners corner', etc? Or do you mean that you are not happy with the way the thread and replies look?

 

We are happy to take any feedback on and use in later re-designs of the user interface if we think it valuable.

Re: Shares chat

Extremely user unfriendly. firstly it wouldn't let me register under "Prancing Horse" as I have for years, so in all likely hood unable to access my previous posts,and the screen in this format you only few a couple of posts on a particular topic. It would appear you could end up with pages and pages if something interesting came up. Big thumbs down from me.

Re: Shares chat

Firstly, we may be able to help with the name issue. Please give me some time on this.

 

To see that I am understanding you correctly, when looking at a topic only a few posts are displayed before you have to page through to see more posts on the topic - is this what you mean? If so this is fairly standard forum behaviour.

However, we can certainly look at making changes to allow more posts to show in the future.

Re: Shares chat

In my previous post

'few' meant to be "view".  Yes to what you said, only need to go up to two single line posts above and you will see the whole screen is taken up. On all the other forums I post, certainly each post is a lot more compact than this is at present.

Re: Shares chat

For those who are not active bloggers or forumites, this format is extremely difficult to use. As mentioned, it is difficult to see all entries on a topic on one screen. I entered the community page earlier, and couldn't find the OST portion, so log out and log onto OST to re-enter it.

Why change the old format if it was not broken...?

Re: Shares chat

Yes that is exactly my feeling.... one reply takes up the whole screen and you need to scroll down and try follow chats. That's not talking.

Perhaps you need a list view or something but this doesn't work as you can see from others
