Agree about the complete waste of time it is now to find any thread you were actually just watching.

There's a box you uncheck under customise to stop this happening.

I think the time may have come for you, Maryz.

It doesn't hurt for very long. (Assuming you get the full Customise and not the dreadful truncated version that some people were being lumbered with immediately after Jeffreygate.)

Maybe query that one with MNHQ? I fear that I think the days of Classic are numbered (in single digits at that) but HQ simply refused to comment on the Customise issue. At any rate, I was starting to post like a broken record on the topic and no response was forthcoming. sad

I'm the same Maryz, I don't want to change anything incase it changed everything.

Why are MNHQ trying to get rid of Classics Cozie?

I would 'guess' that they want to have one single style because the previous 4 (four!) must have been a nightmare to maintain. Tech must have been pie-eyed at times trying to keep it going. Jeffreygate might also have impacted but I have no info on that if so.

Sadly, I think they're still taking too piecemeal a view of things - Pax to some massive review going on about which we know nothing. They should be looking 2-3 years down the line at the desired shape of the site then, and consulting now with users and funders. They seem, however, to be dealing with discrete smaller topics in preference. Hey Ho.

You uncheck a box to get rid of the FB buttons and all the other annoying gubbins. And no need for pages or owt like that.

Stop your moaning and go look. wink

OvO Wed 30-Dec-15 22:29:55

See, it's fiiiine. <soothing noises>

It all works and you can have it just how you like it.

Look at all those lovely drop down menus.

I'm not on classic - I moved with the times years ago . grin

I have pretty colours, and all on one page and no stupid bar thingy or social media buttons.

I think the FB button should be a trap. You click it you get BANNED.

UnGoogleable Wed 30-Dec-15 22:41:38

You can get rid of the social media buttons? Who knew?
I too live in fear of accidentally clicking on the FB button and revealing my MN addiction to the world (no idea if it really works like that).

I'm going into customise now, I'll report back.....

UnGoogleable Wed 30-Dec-15 22:55:00

Right, I'm back.

First thing to report is I'm not a newbie grin old as the hills me. <Unnecessarily defensive>

Second important thing to report is that when I clicked on Customise, it logged me out and I had to log back in (which meant having to remember my sodding password, arses)

Thirdly - turns out I'd already opted to hide the social media. But the floating bar thing comes up anyway. I hadn't realised you can just close that. I've closed it now.

I've unticked the 'watch threads I post on' thing because it annoys me too. It meant I'd stopped using the 'Threads I'm Watching' function as it had become overwhelmed.

Finally, once changed, all my other settings have stayed the same. OPs posts are still forest green and I'm still my lovely pinky purple.

Sorry, I thought I recognised your name It's fine, I'm a frequent NCer due to paranoia grin have yet to stick with a name longer than a few months!

I did have mine set to 50 post per page - I kind of like having it in pages, because it means that if a thread is long, you can just click on the last page to get to the end, rather than scrolling allllll the way down to the end.

However, given that so many of you are such proponents of the 'no page' thing, I've decided to give it a whirl....

I unchecked the "watch threads I'm on" button and I still have choice of colours and 1000 posts per page?

UnGoogleable Wed 30-Dec-15 23:21:01

But I find pages make it easier to do that.

I open a thread. If it has more than 1 page, I click on 'Final page' or whatever it's called, skim the OPs posts or get the jist of where the thread has gone, and figure it out from there.

So it's 2 clicks. Whereas with no pages, it's a click, then aaaaaaaages scrolling on my shit laptop. Although I appreciate doing it that way means you can quickly skim read the OPs posts... Hmm maybe I'm coming round to your way of thinking.

I tell you what I would like to see. When you go on TIO and it shows the 5 latest posts on each thread. It would be great if the OPs posts could be highlighted somehow on there. Because I never remember the name of an OP, and can't be bothered going back on a thread if the OP has disappeared. I may have to start a new thread to ask for this.
