Looks like those reddit style "Question" threads don't have the #post number implemented.Odd. Don't know why some do and some don't.
Looks like you are right. In the subforum in which I noticed this, the 8+ threads happened to be from before the update which brought the prefixes (or were carefully posted without Question prefix), whereas the 7- threads weren't.Looks like those reddit style "Question" threads don't have the #post number implemented.
I agree with you....The prefixes add no value IMO. They are merely cluttering the thread list in a jarring manner. In the subforums which I read, you could tell right away which threads were questions or discussions or news or whatever just from the title that the OP chose; prefixes were never needed for this.
This is great feedback. Thank you. We're exploring all possibilities and are working on the question type thread bugs you outlined.Forum owners,
please make the feature of having "upvote"/ "downvote" buttons next to responses something which the creator of a new thread sees as a clear option that he can switch on if desired. (Right now the way to switch it on and off is entirely obfuscated, and too many thread openers switch it on by accident!)
Alternatively (and many users of your forum will consider this the better option), remove this feature again entirely.
But at the very least, please fix ASAP the bug that threads which are opened with no prefix selected get the question prefix. If at all possible, please also fix the bug that threads whose question prefix gets removed or replaced still remain question-type threads.
I've noticed a few people posting in the CPU forum (and elsewhere) with a stunning number of negative reactions. I can only conclude that those dislikes must have come from P&N. We've had some obnoxious tit-for-tat dislike wars in the tech forums, but nothing that extreme . . .The rep system is highly annoying in the social forums. Like anyone that has used the internet could predict, some people just downvote everything posted by people they don't like.
Feels like they're trying to sequester forumites. Contain them in the rubber room. Could be a neglected detail though.Is it intentional that the top left Anandtech logo still doesn't link back to the main AT website?
Prior to this XenForo thingy, it always brought up the AT mainpage. It was my handy quick link to escape the forum madness. There are two forum, home buttons directly under this, now, that bring up the forum main page. Don't know why we need 3 buttons, and no way outside of bookmarking the main page to go back to the website.Interesting question - That has always brought up the AT Forum for me. Assume you mean the word ANANDTECH ?
yup, prior to the latest upgrade clicking the 'AnandTech' logo would take you to anandtech.com front page.Prior to this XenForo thingy, it always brought up the AT mainpage.
