  • Still some pretty annoying problems with the forum

    The thing that bugs me the most:

     

    Truncated thread titles.  Makes it impossible to know what many threads are about before opening them... this makes me not want to use the forum at all.  And it seems totally stupid because of how much white space goes wasted in the thread listing pages.

     

    And, I can't find the feedback forum any more.  Did they give up?

    Etc. Sucks, I don't want to open each thread to find out the topic. It's worse on the political forum where topics are often long.

      The thread title issue is one of the most pressing -- and perplexing.


      It is one of the surprisingly large number of issues here that have had me scratching my head over Lithium's forum system. I get it that Lithium was designed as a customer support forum -- but so many of the perplexing, missing, misapplied, or just plain misguided features in Lithium are features that are just as important to customer service as they are to a general discussion forum -- sometimes more so.


       


      FWIW, you can still find the Feedback link in the footer of most (or all) of the forum pages under the Help Desk column header.

      The chorus seems a little weak... I think it needs more lasers.

        I really miss the gear reviews. Are they totally gone or do I just not know where to look?

      As has already been mentioned, the Feedback forum is still there.


       


      As far as thread titles, I was asked about that a couple of days ago, and I said I was in favor of making them longer. I'm not sure if my advice will be heeded or not, and if so, when that will happen, but I was asked, so apparently someone is considering changing that.

        Philter,

        I'll still make the best of whatever, but this whole "support" angle they keep following baffles me. I'll admit I hadn't been around much to see the performance issues. But I still say they're trying to drive a screw with a hammer.

        Good to see you and Phil, though.

        Thank Phil, I did post about it on that forum (a couple times I think) but it feels a bit like an echo chamber in there.  Glad to know they are still thinking about improvements.
