Since the new change to pages means that the threads do not load nearly as much data at a time, we may not need to create Part N threads anymore.

I don't know, the preview section is back, so we're not flying blind anymore when we post...

Didn't notice the "preview" missing, what is missing is not being able to see the thread you are replying to without opening a new window.

Yes that really is annoying.

Just goes to show that whatever you do, you will never please all of the people all of the time!

I like it before how it showed the First post then the X amount most recent. Weird that it was changed. But whatever, we all can adapt I guess :)

I only reincarnate threads when a mod asks me to.

Oooo I dont like this new format for posting. How am I supposed to reply to peoples posts without being able to scroll down and re-read them. [Edit-removed a bit here cause it was wrong. :)]
And while I'm having a sook about it - the font isn't very nice either.

I was about to say it works fine for me, but I checked and could only see the post I was quoting or replying to.

Guess we'll just have to use "edit" mode, or a second window, for listing winners in the "Caption" game.

Right click on the button and select open in new tab (or new window).

Also hitting <CTRL> while clicking on a link opens the link in a new Tab, likewise hitting <Shift> while clicking a link opens the link in a new Window.

Middle click?! As in three button mouse?? If you have one of those I assume it has a ball in it and is circa 1995?

;-)?

[edit]: I remembered that mice with a scroll wheel typically you can click the scroll wheel as a third button. (However I've yet to see this option in a laptop :-))
