New users won't know to use the ctrl-arrow combos, and the rest of us don't need to go through the sticky posts every time we visit.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

I dont know if its by design or a bug.
Whenver I come to to "Bugs and suggestion" page, the left side menu of list of forum dissappear. There is no easy navigation method to go back to other forum like "spam and abuse" which are not listed in top menu
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
dind't quite know where to ask, but since several days i don't get the notifications left of my username. Is this a bug or did i somehow change that in my profile settings?
I liked that i could see who answered to one of my messages.
if(this.signature != "")
MessageBox.Show("This is my signature: " + Environment.NewLine + signature);
MessageBox.Show("404-Signature not found");
A debugging session took me into the MS reference sources, and showed me something I should have known, but didn't - so I started a quick article on why it matters. (The title has changed already, and the article itself is in "pause" mode waiting a couple of days for me to review it before I hit the "publish" button)
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I really like the way the forums are (under normal layout settings) however when there is a post I clearly have no interest in (such as the CCC or the MQOTD or ...) I skip these posts.
But the reply's are still there, taking up space.
Would it be possible to have a sort off collapse button (next to the pin button or so) that collapses the thread?
I know there is the 'Thread view' layout but I don't really like that one
Added bonus would be if a posts gets collapsed other posts (or reply's) get added to the bottom of the page to reach the 'per page' count again. (that might not be possible but ...)
Nothing major, a nice to have but I can live without it
Hi Tom, I find this a bit confusing: yes, the replies are there in the sense that your browser has loaded them (I assume they are not "lazy-loaded"), but if you are using the Thread-View, you don't have to see them.
«I'm asked why doesn't C# implement feature X all the time. The answer's always the same: because no one ever designed, specified, implemented, tested, documented, shipped that feature. All six of those things are necessary to make a feature happen. They all cost huge amounts of time, effort and money.» Eric Lippert, Microsoft, 2009
From what I understood from his post (and if I may) - I think he means a "Collapse" button on a parent message which will collapse all its children while using the Normal layout. So even if the children are already rendered, they will simply be collapsed.
If you prefer to see the messages along with their replies (as in the Normal layout - which I believe most of us do), the problem with the Thread view is that you still have to navigate to a separate page in order to see the children messages.
You'r probably not the only one, I'v been told before that I'm not always clear in my explanations
It's basically as Agent_007 said.
I prefer (by far) to use the 'normal' layout setting.
But under that setting the reply's are always visible and taking up space, I don't mind this as a default but would like to have the option to collapse (or hide) those reply's for the posts I choose.
Anyway Agant_007 probably said it better so'll refer to his reply
So I'm probably not doing something correctly, but I'm a noob here. Verified my account, searched, posted a Q, searched some more... Every question I try to open from my search results only opens a page listing the latest Q's (in C#) under 'how to answer a question.'
What am I missing. Can't be firefox, can't find a 'contact us' anywhere. This seems to be the only place I can ask. Why won't search results open, same or different tab? Dumbfounded.
Go to your name at the top right corner of the site. Choose "My Settings" from the menu, and select the Close my account setting at the right hand side. Finally, click Save my Settings and I believe your account will be closed.
