        Wow, found another feature: did anybody notice the
        non-working and therefore utterly useless "email this
        topic" and "edit this topic" links underneath a
        thread?
        I thought they were a legend--telling you what the icons next to the post mean. I didn't think they were supposed to be clickable. Hence, they are working just fine and are not utterly useless.

          They aren't supposed to be links, me thinks. They are supposed to be a legend to explain what those icons mean on the post heading. (At least that's how I interpret them)

            That was my interpretation, too (see my previous reply, #23).

              The view used to have the same information as e.g. the programming
              forum, where you can see who it is who have done the last post in a
              thread. That is, the "last post" column should also show the
              username of the last post.
              My point exactly; I asked for the return of the old view layout too.
              IMO the only reason they took the username out is because they've
              wasted too much screen estate on the left side of the screen (that
              big fat white strip filled with a whole lot of nothing)

              kind regards,

                So why do the icons refer to a post, while those things below refer to the entire topic?

                  ...and why do the tool tip say "click to email this message". Doesn't that indicate that you should be able to click on the envelope and email the message?

                    Ooops. I didn't read too carefully. You meant those under the whole thread :(

                      Took me a few seconds, but then I understood it. :) Yeah... enhanced user experience, I guess. I gained the experience not to trust the tool tips.

                        I think they are hints on the icons' usage.

                        If there is a post which you posted, you can edit it with the help of the icon advertised below as "edit" one. And it works! It is a feature long missed and frequently asked for.

                          To be honest, not all of us missed it, for it was still there if you looked hard enough.

                          The category view was one of the things I complained about too, as part of my general theme of "fix the bugs rather than move things around".

                            I like the way the body of the posts move further to the right at each "upgrade", I shall need two monitors soon.

                              You are underestimating.

                                Just to agree with everyone,

                                Every time they thinker with the forum, it gets worse, uglier and less functional. The recent removal or the last poster was an work of art. The left scrolling is very annoying too.

                                It would be wonderfull if they spend development time in bug fixing instead of making it fancier. It is a developer forum for code's sake! It should not be fancy, it should be clean and functional.

                                  P.S.: The lack of navigation links on the botton of the page(like 1 2 3 next>>) is quite annoying too.

                                    Notivago, you're too old-fashioned. Nobody nowadays has the attention span to spend more than 20 seconds here. It has to look cool and flashy. It doesn't have to actually work or be useful. Only dinosaurs care about that, and dinosaurs are the unhippest thing since camera-less cell phones.
