It's amazing to me. A guy makes a (well-thought-out) suggestion, one that is obviously coming from a place or a degree of coding experience and
systems management, and the overwhelming response is to castigate him? This is getting ridiculous around here.
I wonder if Obama or Bush are responsible for his untimely and what seems to be his repugnant egregious suggestion within the proper forum FFS.
You guys can express your distaste without being constantly and overtly acerbic about it. Not to mention there ARE things in life, especially in the
IT industry, that are in a constant state of evolution or can be improved upon, and ATS is no different.
For what it's worth OP, I agree that threads can be hard to read for a lot of the reasons that you've pointed out. As I'm sure you're well aware, a
website with the sheer volume that ATS has, re-indexing the content that already exists to apply changes to it's structure would likely be
time-consuming, nevermind the codification of the changes and subsequent testing. But over the years ive thought about that too. Perhaps something as
simple as a minimize/maximize arrow next to their avatar that when minimized would display their entire post along with the avatar and pretty much
viewable exactly as it is now....when minimized, shows only their name, who a reply is to (if applicable) and only their reply and timestamp while
actively removing those aforementioned whitespaces from the reply...it can be restored to full whitespace/avatar/yada yada upon re-maximizing it
