[POLL] Topic title click to view changed - please vote

Postby allingeneral » Sun, 20 Jul 2014 20:35:52

I made a change to the forum today that requires a click on the topic title rather than the entire topic row being active for a click.

Here's an image of the way it used to work - where you could click anywhere within the red area in order to visit that topic, and all other topics were the same - click anywhere in the topic row to visit the latest post in that topic.

I would like to know if people were aware of this feature, or if it was largely unnoticed. I would also like to know if you want it back, or if you don't care, etc.

Please leave a vote for your preference.

Why are you going to all this trouble just because one new member thinks he knows better than you do?

I've long wondered about the topic click approach and this was a good opportunity to consider it. I may change that back to the way it was. Thus the poll...

The login thought was a good one...still have a bug in that, though.

It's been awhile since much has changed around here, so stirring the pot seemed like fun or something.

It helps the people with fat fingers (me) using phones... but I don't use my phone that much so I'm cool with whatever works the best.

I never knew about clicking the topic row and have always clicked on the topic title. I don't have a preference in this functionality since I will probably still click on topic titles.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

I can always use another 1911.

It's been so long since I've been here on a real computer, I've nearly forgotten what the forum is supposed to look like.

Myself, I'm generally not too picky. I'm not here for the aesthetics, I'm here because I like the people, and I appreciate the various insight. What buttons to push, and where to push them are relatively insignificant, as long as I can find the buttons.

It must not have been important to me 'cause I can't remember how I voted - probably that it was fine before or that I didn't care.

I always clicked on the title or on the last page icon when there are multiple pages of comments. I haven't noticed any difference.
