Slightly annoying forum thing....

Post by cappedup » Sat, 16. Nov 02, 20:36

I know its the same as the last place and i never complained then, but.... i never want to View my Own Post after ive just written it, ive just written it so know what it says.... Also if im not quick enough i have to view it anyway. Can we not lose that page so save on extra clicks, or at least make it default back to the board if you leave it?

Poll anyone.

Sorry to disagree, but I usually like to view my message after I've written it.

I agree, we should keep the message view. If ppl read what they've typed it could prevent misunderstandings. :)

And anyway, it does give you the option to go to the forum's main page....

[grumble] ok, outvoted 2-1, it stays, still dont like it though [/grumble]

EDIT.... :idea: no, hang on, isnt that what the Preview button is for...??? if folk cant write what they mean, preview it, have a think then press submit without still saying the wrong stuff, thats a pretty sorry state to be in..

I cant see why you would want to read what youve just written a few seconds after its been posted :?

I would personally prefer the extra page to be there, but for the "view your post" button to actually take you back to the part of the thread you were viewing when you made the post--I don't know if this is even possible, though.

Of course, I'd prefer a threaded view even more--phpBB is used on so many Internet forums these days, you'd think this would be their most-requested feature!

Funny thing is, offhand i would of agreed with you as i usually don't read my own posts. Except that i did just reply to another post and when my reply popped back up i realized that i had left something out and edited it. So i guess now i would say leave it :)
