asked me to bellyache on this forum, instead of opening a new thread. So here goes....
ATS prides itself in having a fancy looking website with all that eye candy. So far so good. But in the process, ATS seems to have lost the basics of
Some things are a pain.
1. How do I find my last post in a thread? It sucks when the thread is as long as the Nile. When I go to 'my ATS'
and click on the
thread (where I had last posted) it is impossible to find it! Trawling from page one to infinity sucks! We don't have the
darn time for that! There's another way but it's easier finding your way through the Amazon rain forests than the cumbersome procedures out here!!
I should automatically be sent to my last post on the thread on clicking the subscribed thread in 'my ATS'
the first page of the thread which makes absolutely no sense!
2. Each time one needs to highlight/bold/headline/italicize etc a certain part of the text, one is sent to another pop up window where one's required
to cut /paste that portion in the space provided. This sucks!
Like forums on other websites, the portion of text required to be bolded/italicized etc can be highlighted and the relevant button
on top of the post clicked. That's it! No separate windows, no cut and paste etc!
3. Posting YouTube and Google videos are again a pain in the a$$! One needs to cut the portion from the '='
sign onwards and then paste that
part of the url on the post!
Just copy and paste the entire goddamn url of the video on the post. That's it! (Like on other website forums).
And then when you want to paste a smiley after you've finished writing your post, it doesn't land up where you want it! It invariably always ends up
after the last word on the post! Damn!
As for me, I go through the painful time consuming drill of doing everything manually here - in this century of automation where life is supposed to
become simpler! Geeez!
We've had enough of eye candy graphics on ATS. Now it's time ATS makes our lives simpler!
It's not rocket science. Most all good websites
have this, why not ATS?
There's more but this will have to do for now!
