Maybe we need a vote on that /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
I am fighting fires all over the place too. All we need is another CBS special on exploding tanks and we are gonna have trouble finding the good stuff again.
I raised this issue before on the old board and it got buried. The reason I feel that there is so much support for the old style is that the users that benefit from it (the ones that go back so many threads) are the only ones who voice their opinion over time. On the other board the first 6 posts said Yes for the Post to Top format ... then as my thread moved back a few levels the sentiment changed.
but, it's gonna cause the same problem with repitition... unless it defaults to post on top. With that default it would keep the common posts near the top for new users. That would be EXCELLENT. And then the dilligent users that dig in each time could return to this method with a little click of their profile.
THIS WOULD BE THE SOLUTION ... however I know that sometimes with 3rd party software you can't get it all.
For a poll to work and be fair it would have to be at the top of the threads and be locked so that it will not move down the list. The supporters of the post to top will not see it as thread 75 but the people against post to top surely will.
Midlife has asked Bob to look at it. I just hope it is possible to make it a user option and that it will default to post to top for users (so new users start out seeing it this way to prevent 150 seperate threads on "is my picture working").
