    Default Forum Update Feedback

    In the thread announcing the Forum Update Forums Upgrade we were asked to give feedback. However, when I try to reply to the thread - it says I do not have sufficient privileges to do so.

    Please pass on my feedback that for the most part everything looks good - but I find that the colour of hyperlinks (Can you spot the the one in the line above) is too close to the colour of normal forum text. It would be helpful if the default colour could be made to stand out a bit more.

    Thanks

    agreed, no feedback possible
    i also send a private message with my feedback but got no reply at all


    well i dont like the new one much

    1. the old one was perfect - very good design, fast useable, worked just fine

    the new one is anoying in many ways here a short list
    im always logged out - even its jsut a few clicks it just hurts my workflow (and iam fast
    to much fancy web 2.0 stuff - while this is fine in some consumer, kiddy, whatever forum this one is a very serisouse one like technet
    the focus should be on speed, useability not one extra bloating features

    i also dont like all that css hidden elements, when iam on my laptop over 3g it really hurts - much more loding time
    also partly overloaded now - we dont need must of this stuff - ok i think noone really need many of those new features - but here its not only a "hey not really needed but fun to have" its more a "to much less is more"

    really do we need to ratings?
    why do we have a birthday calendar?
    all those fancy posting options noone need


    but whats really anonying is bevore we had a great sticky thread - regular thread difference
    i mean you had the header with the stickys which was very clearly different to regulars - now its all the same
    just more colorful icons noone need even confuses a little


    really for a business forum this is to much of a toy, but the important things to be effecive here are gone

    really i like to support and excahnge here - but for most of us its kinda work - so the forum is a work tool not a toy for boored sysadmins


    serisously to repeat it - tool

    we dont need birthdays (except liverpools for getting him something for the backend)
    no fancy icons markign sticky threads - the old design was eprfect
    events , albums, stuff backlinks all stuff we do not need

    also the recent activity list is meesed up now, bevore i had a clear overview how many hundred threads im gonna answer in the next hour
    now with the new design its confusing, no clear look there anymore


    na sorry, that upgrade was not a favour to me . and i think many users
    maybe some like it, or dont bother, i dont know i can jsut speak for myself and speak from the point of observation about usabailty as a tool to get stuff done (in this case information exchange - even its a forum its work for me)

    i also dont get it why the design has such a big change
    i could live with additional bloating features IF at least the good stuff remains

    but really do it like apple (even i hate it) less is more - faster loading times also means better google rating,
    also happier users on 3g


    thanks for not readin



    ARGH again - bevore send was the right button - not its cancel - almsot killed another post

    They took your feedback, and changed now the hyperlink it's shown in blue.

    I gave mine in Zimbra version not shown in posts ,no joy.

    Think it's very useful for support.

    Default How to mark a thread solved ?

    Since the forum upgrade I cannot find out how to mark a thread as solved.

    Editing the initial post title no longer updates the thread title. And, I cannot find the Mark Solved button anywhere.

    Am I missing something obvious somewhere ?
