4 days later, still sucks.
Still very slow, cumbersome, difficult to track and navigate, unintuitive. Makes me sad - which I mentioned in another post in the 2011 forum, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get back there any time soon.
Topic at the top of my head #38: why not have the Post button somewhere where you don't haver to scroll down to find it? Like maybe where the Reply button was? eh?
lithium was probably a bad choice, autodesk (but may be the only choice for me if I continue to try to find some way to remain productive using this new forum setup)
Unfortunately, with this new web based discussion forum, I can't tell what you agreed to because I resist the long jump towards the top to click on a link that looks like your response is lined up underneath, to wait 20 seconds for it to load to see if I might also agree with what you've agreed to or have any other thougt, valuable or not, about.
But if you're the JP I've seen for years in the NNTP groups, I guess I'll just believe that I probably agree with you too.
Wish I knew what it was though...
I agreed that ASCII is fine and no need for all the bells and whistles, and yessir same JP.
Using Chrome the "First Impression" thread would send me to my browser home page when I clicked on it - weird, it doesn't happen with any other thread. I fixed it by running the Chrome extension IE Tab on the Autodesk forum. It has a setting to automatically run this site in an IE tab so I don't have to switch browsers.
First impression... both better, and worse, than previous. Took a bit of fiddling to get the setting to a point where I consider them acceptable (see image) that lets me see the content and structure. This requires a sacrifice of screen space though, with far fewer top-level threads per page at the board level.
I really was expecting something better.
