Need more blank lines between posts please

Can the web format get any more bloated?

You could fit 4 post headers within every one the way it is now.

You did an upgrade and ignored that?

How embarrassing.

see attached image.

If you want more readership, stop making us scroll, which any internet designer knows, as how many people look past first page of internet search results?

This is common sense stuff.

looks a bit automated Scooch11.

I don't believe you though, you are not making modifications based on our feedback but what you want to do.

Can you honestly say you did not know a main request was for less bloat?

Do I need to post links to the unhappy previous comments for your review?

Please treat us like we did not log on here for the first time, this is years of ongoing issues.

jmaeding,

 

Not automated in any way. I hope that you can see that we have come a long way to where we were. Given that we just released this, we will give the changes a little time to settle in and make nescessary changes in the future. You have been involved in these forums for longer than I have.

While reducing the white space in the topics list, maybe trim some of it out of posts too.  Currently no more than two complete posts can be viewed on a HD monitor without vertical scrolling.

Glad to see its a person :smileyhappy:

Let me ask then, does it make any sense at all that we want to see more posts per page?

 

Can you comment on why the bloat has not been addressed yet?

Even saying something like "it would need huge customization and that causes more problems than it solves...".

As is though, we are seeing complete "overhauls" and Autodesk says they cannot deal with customization?

 

I have used these DG's since NNTP was around and the web format is a quantum leap down from that.

You at least need to get the bloat dealt with, even if it means compromises on whatever. It should be top priority.

jmaeding, We would like to give you and the Autodesk community the ability to see more posts without scrolling for sure. As I noted, your request and observation has been noted. Can I promise a change, no, as you can imagine. I can promise that we will look into it though. Has there been any other things, positive or negative, that you have noticed? I do have to apologize that I am checking out for the evening though. Will definitely follow up in the morning. Scooch11

Schooch11,

Just some basic feedback would be appreciated.

Why can Autodesk do this update but not address the space issue?

Heck, make some experimental mode and allow us to switch back to "classic" so you can say the new one is prone to errors.

Soundcloud did this, Cox webmail did this, Is Autodesk looking for ideas?

Since its internet programmers involved, they should know the treeview control.

Give me a treeview with one node per header, maybe the person who responded at end of truncated header.

That's it, a treeview I can expand and collapse.

If I pick on an item, it shows the contents in a text frame below or off to the side, that does not jump around.

Like Forte Agent has done for years.

You really have the ultimate resource at your fingertips, this DG.

I am curious to hear your thoughts on how many long time participants have commented on the bloat and nothing is actually done.

Take this as ammunition to go to your higher ups and do something, you will get a lot of support on this from us.
