View Full Version : Do you use the forum jump drop down box?

12th Jul 2002, 22:26
My first official poll, :p Just like the title says. So do you use the *forum jump* drop down box at all? Located at the bottom left of the page.
I am still curious as to how many forum members actually use this feature. I use it all the time. I know GM would be curious as well. :)

Looks like he already decided to put it back but I'll vote anyway.

I use it ALL the time.

I didn't even know it was really there. I'm just use to going to the main Thief page and open new windows from there.

There is so much stuff on the new forum, I don't use most of it. As long as I can find the forums and read posts, that is enough for now. Maybe in time I can get a little more savvy abbout all the options here.

Vesper :D

Keep in mind that we will still be tweaking the forums for awhile, as we find out the what is the most comfortable setup in regards to features vs. bandwidth.

I think there were enough people who were immediately put off by not having the forum jump available to turn it back On, where it will likely stay.

And oh yeah...I never use it ;)

About 70% of the time.

I do notice that "browsing" the forum as a unit is a little more difficult than the old format.

I kinda liked being able to scan a 20 post list of current posts to pick the highlights to view then schmooz the rest.

This new format is a little more cumbersome. But I must admit the "divisions" to segregate the material does make sense.

I just use the back button on my browser to navigate. I think that's because I'm lazy.

I like to see who is on line too. ;) What are you taffers doing? :D
you can jump from forum to forum much faster I find. I like the option. :)

I start from the top thief forum, and work my way down..........

The main thief forum page is my homepage, and use my mouse gestures to get back there when I want to, and I use the forum jump box to get to any other of the forums I frequent.

I can't vote, because my reply is not an option. My answer is "No. I don't use it." I have Thief Series as my home page. I use the link sequence at the top of the page to back up to Thief Series, or higher if wanted. Then, depending on what I see there, I dive back down again. The pull down menu gives no information about whether a category has been updated since you last visited there, so it is a shot in the dark.

WOW..there is a pull down menu..hum..never even saw it..so i guess that means I don't use it.

The new forums are slow for me. Seems like it takes forever to get back to where I started, like cars, they go faster with fewer options.

as I don't jump much from one forum to the next...I use it mainly when I get to the bottom of the postings and then use it to get back to our main board here and as well when I check my cp window, I'll use it then to get back even though I subscribe to this forum...I use the drop link to come back here as I may not necessarily want to see the most recent post first to want to get back to the whole page instead...but if I were a forum jumper, it would be a more convienent method to do so, IMHO :) Ta and Good Hunting!

ps: I'd probably use it more for accessing the FM forum as newer FM's are released and I need my usual boostings to get me going again though :D and speaking of newer FM's...Christine has her fourth installment on her series available....so here we gooooo! LOL
