This thread's getting pretty long, so I'm not sure if this has been covered yet...
I am experiencing some minor issues that are nagging.
When I go to my messages and click on 'replies', to see who's replied to my recent posts, they a clearly displayed. They are show as an active link,
but when I click them, nothing happens. I tried to right click them and open in a new tab (this works when I have pop-up blocker running all-ahead,
full), but it made no difference.
It makes it a little more difficult because the thread, in which the reply was made, is not displayed - only the member's name who replied is shown.
Again, when I click it, nothing happens. I believe a message should open, telling me who replied, which thread, and at what time they replied.
I haven't noticed any other issues with my ATS Message Center.
When I go to my profile home and then select the icon to show a list of my recent replies, the replies are shown, as they should be. The issue is very
similar to the one above.
If I click on one of my replies, nothing happens, where before it would take me to the exact location in the thread where the post was made. Also
similar to the previous issue, the replies shown in the list seem to be active links, but they will not open, even when I right click and select,
'Open in New Tab'.
I can see what forum and thread the reply was made in, but I can not go to the specific thread and exact location by clicking the link. The only
success I am having is when I click the forum associated with each specific post being displayed in the list.
On the home page of ATS2010, each popular thread was displayed in virtually the same manner they are displayed in 5/3. However, there is something
that is missing and it's something I find useful.
I mentioned this a few days ago in another reply and the issue seemed to be fixed sometime afterwards. Now it appears to be removed again.
Included below the title of each thread being displayed on the 'front-page' (home-page) was the date of the thread's publication, along with the
number of replies, and the number of flags the thread has receive. I am not certain if all three statistics were displayed, but I am positive at least
2 of those stats were displayed below each thread.
Some people could care less about these stats, but in this instance I found them to be a useful. Because some forums are less active than others, a
thread from a low traffic forum needs to garner far less flags to be highly ranked in it's forum than a thread from a high-traffic forum.
A thread in the Aliens & UFO forum may need to have 100 flags to be ranked #2, where a thread in the Food forum may only need 5 flags to be ranked #2
in it's forum.
Displaying the number of posts, flags, or both makes it easier to see which threads are more active across the general ATS membership without the need
to actively enter the thread. It saves time when you don't have to enter a thread only to find there are 2 comments and 4 flags.
1 More Thing...
I've also noticed, from time-to-time, on the front-page (home-page) that some of the thread titles and previews are over-lapping an advertisement.
I've only noticed 1 advertisement, about mid-way down the front-page, that does this and it doesn't do it every time.
Sorry for the long post here and I hope I didn't retard anyone back to the 2nd grade!
