Re: Yet Another Minor Update Just Installed
An index of thread participants now appears at the top of each message page.

I really like this feature! It makes it much easier to navigate through a particular sub-discussion within the thread.

TTFN,

Re: Wounded King?
Because when you are having 1 thread of discussion amongst a dogpile of others it helps to be able to reduce the post to only 1 person until you can find the right point in the discussion, then you can bring the rest of the thread in to get the full context, it would be even better if you could simply screen some people out to thin the thread down.

If everyone used the reply button consistently it might not be such a problem, but since the same person often replies multiple times to one post or consolidates responses to multiple people in either a general reply or a reply to one specific person trying to follow a conversational thread through the links is not always easy.

Plus I like only reading what I have written without all of the plebs cluttering the place up, nothing like a whole thread of me pontificating to remind me how great I am. Excuse me while I find a device to deflate my head.

TTFN,

WK

Slight oddity
I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this before.

If I try and propose a new topic in a forum other than 'Proposed New Topics', say 'Biological Evolution', I get the message ...

You may not open a new topic in this forum. New topics for most forums must be proposed in the Biological Evolution forum.

The link takes me to the 'Proposed New Topics' forum but the text refers to whatever forum I was in when I clicked the 'New Topic' button.

TTFN,

WK
