Why were post numbers eliminated? I found them helpful for navigating through long threads. I can't figure out what the rationale for eliminating them was.
somehow we're only 124th
as far as i know they're one of the "fixes" pending - they're part of permalinking comments
I verified this with Brian last night. It is on his list of things to fix ASAP.
I'd like to see the numbers return, along with the helpful "[x] new replies" note at the top of the page. Those were two very useful features.
The anchor tags still exist in the HTML, but the links aren't there. Anyone who knows HTML can view source and look them up to use them.
I hope bringing back join date under mgohandles is on the fix list as well. Doesn't take much space, and it's just nice to see how long someone's been around.
That's what points are for. Duh.
Not quite. As someone else pointed out, it was a quick way to check someone's credibility. Lots of points is another place to look for that, but I think join date is a better indicator.
It was a quick check on their (supposed) reliability. Not perfect, but it helped.
I heard it was because Brian hates puppies.
How the top of the page would tell you how many new replies were in a thread. Ahh the MGoBlog of yesteryear...
