Mr.BishopI mean there are loads of forums which have been very successful using "threaded" style view, which is what this is.
Also, the way we looked at it was that it'd be an option vs. the default.
Although, overall usually the idea is met negatively so it just goes into the back burner.
Idk. I think a lot of forums start to suck when it becomes nothing but a pissing contest to say something "witty" to get upvotes.
I like it in the order posted.
Also when following a thread that goes on for a while. You may have read up to page 2 and change. You come back and now it's at 3 or 4. You can pic up where you left off and see what else was posted.
Idk, keep the forum as a forum IMO.
I guess I can understand it. I kind of hate that on the one hand it's like "I'm 12 and I've been on NS for 2 days but this other forum I'm on does this so NS should do that". But on the other hand that helps to secure the base of people for the future.
I honestly didn't like some stuff about the way the forum was setup at first and didn't join NS. But then I finally got on here and really ended up liking it.
There have been a lot of small changes. Some I've loved, other not so much. But I feel like this would change things too much.
I guess if it was an option whatever though.
