An idea

Postby jasdjensen » Fri Sep 26, 2008 10:17 am

This site is great. It has served as a wonderful diversion while waiting for my S10 and a good place to share ideas about what to use it for once it finally arrives. Kudos! and THANK YOU!

One bit of comment: The icons on the main screen aren't really that easy to figure out. On the bottom of that main screen can we have a table that tells us what they mean? Red vs Blue.. and what they mean?

agreed...I don't think it is easy to notice where there are new posts until you click on a board topic. Scanning the index the only way I notice how to find new threads is to scan the dates...there should be some image indicating where the new threads/replies are. Thx!!!!

I find new posts by going to the Board Index and clicking View New Posts. Then just the threads with messages posted since the last time you viewed them will be visible.

Icon Legend

I've decided to just create a sticky in the New Members section. You'll remember what the icons mean very quickly and will not have to view that page very often. For this reason, I don't feel it's necessary to have it on every single page when viewing the forum.

If people feel differently, please let know.
