Re: Site suggestions poll

Hi

Just giving this another bump to encourage more forum users to contribute their views on improving the site so it becomes EVEN better.

You can vote for as many of the suggestions as you want.
The poll closes at lunchtime on Sun 23 July (UK time)

If you don't vote, your views cannot be taken into account.

Re: Site suggestions poll

Jon - you are a star - thank you.

Hadn't realised you were following this

Somehow doubt there will be many more responses before the deadline
Do any of the other suggestions look easy to implement?

Re: Site suggestions poll

Hard to tell. But do we have a consensus on anything? Can some of these things already be done?

Re: Site suggestions poll

None can be done easily

The only point that seems to not have a consensus is automatically closing a thread after a period of inactivity

List of unanswered topics is possible to get but requires four or so steps.
On UA forum its available on 1 click.

With regards to a list of moderators - it exists IF you know where to find it - Search didn't work for me

You can't save a list of subscribed threads at the moment - though you can do this for private messages

Currently, there is obviously no way of getting a warning before navigating away from current page - we've all lost posts by doing that without thinking

I can't see any disadvantage of making the advanced editor the default - and that obviates the need to add the code button to the basic editor.

The poll closes on 23 July.
I was going to give it a final 'bump' in a day or so

Re: Site suggestions poll

I will look at some of this, although what can be done depends on the difficulty. Regarding the advanced editor, is your suggestion that it is always showing at the bottom of a thread like the quick reply?

No - instead of the quick reply

Re: Site suggestions poll

Ok, I think instead of the quick reply would be very difficult. You will notice that the Advanced mode is actually a completely different page, rather than code at the bottom of the thread.

Re: Site suggestions poll

So would showing both be easier?

Re: Site suggestions poll

I can't show another page on the same page.

If you want to see posts with zero replies, you can use this: https://www.access-programmers.co.uk...1&replylimit=0

I have had a look and I'm not sure how much value there is in it. I see lots of deleted threads, administrative things and so on. That might be because I am an admin. Not sure if you can see that.

Makes sense. Is there any way you can implement this?

The link works perfectly.
I don't see any of those things (see below) so it seems good to me.


If feasible, perhaps it would be worth excluding items that don't normally get answered e.g. code repository / sample databases.
But its good as shown - perhaps added to Quick Links?

Re: Site suggestions poll

I cannot implement it.

Check out Quick Links now. I added Unanswered Posts and restricted it to the last month only.

Assume you mean you can't implement advanced editor as standard - if so that's a shame

Had a look at Quick Reply but use it so rarely i'm not sure what you've changed. Can you add the code # button to it?

Unanswered posts - that's perfect as far as I'm concerned. Thanks

Re: Site suggestions poll

Sorry did you mean Quick Links rather than Quick Reply?

BTW if you click on Mark Forums Read in Quick Links, this message always appears



I think Quick Links would also be the ideal place to add a list of site moderators
