Re: TESTING NEW BBS SOFTWARE
I didn't like it. I couldn't view it in tree mode in Netscape 4.7 and it went wide,
(no wordwrap) in flat mode, so its a pain to read the posts.
In IE I could see the tree mode but it was no help.
The real issue though is you can't see a thread, only one message at a time. How you
are expected to have a sense of a conversation, I can't tell. The purpose of a forum
like this is communication. I don't see this format helping to get information and dialog
I looked a bit for some display button, but found none, other than the flat or tree mode.
tree mode is useless. you can't see anything but who posted. an open forum, not one
split by thread and counter threa, is better.
Flat mode is OK for the list of current threads, but once entered a thread should be
visable in its entirety, or at least significant portions therof.
