The new forum update software makes it difficult
Hello and good day to all of you.
As a blind person my focus is to hear only relevant information and skip information that I don't want, fast and easy. In the old applevis forum I could go through all the topics fast by putting the rotor into links mode and swiping down. Now in order to see all the topics, after the subject I have to hear the name of the poster, the number of posts. This makes it more time consuming to go through on the posts and therefore makes it less probable for me to read all the posts. If other users feel the same there will be less activity in the forum and as a result the content in the forum will suffer. I propose putting a heading in every subject so that we can navigate everything easier and still keep the other information clickable. In the old forum software this was not a problem, since only the subject was clickable. Your millage may vary.
Hi. I liked the old style better as well. I can navigate by heading, click the subject line that interests me. What bothers me personally is how it says the title of the post, then the forum topic. I'd rather just see the title followed by the post itself. I mean if I really wanted to know this was about the phone, watch etc, I'd want that info read earlier. Plus, i still see somewhat unhelpful subject lines like, help with the phone. Now when I've done this, I've seen my posts be edited which is their right. But when it comes down to it, I'd love to see people not post three or four word replies. It drives me through what little sanity I have left. But the moderators are ruler supreme here.
The title forum thing is strange but I'm used to it now but I'm not a fan.
Hi. Thanks for agreeing the old way was better. granted I'm kind of used to it. but again, one sentence replies just drive me bat **** crazy is as in the old email list days. Yes, thanks or I agree followed by send, just. why make the effort? Oh well it's a pet peeve no one cares about. :)
I liked the old way better as well. I always say if it ain't broke don't fix it. I liked to see my name at the top but oh well...
