How about incorporating thread view and reply counts within the thread. Like this, perhaps.

You see for "Re" threads for front page articles, there's no way to see how many views are there. It's quite convenient to have the counts right in the thread itself.

Done.

Where is it? Ah... I see it. It's in the 1st page, inside the original poster's header box, right underneath the "Reply - Quote - ..." tools. Well, I guess it makes a bit of sense, since those information is most relevant to the original poster (thread creator). But will it be too much to ask, to put it in every page? ;)

Edit to clarify: I wasn't meant to be pushy or anything above, just partly joking. If it's possible and easy then by all means put it in every page in a thread, but if it's not then the one now is sufficient. And of course, thanks for the additional feature! :)

How about when you open a thread in progress it shouldd by default open to the last post instead of the frist.Its really a pain going to the last post on really long threads.Or after i post and then i have to scroll back to my own post

Or it should at least maybe go to your last post, not necessarily the last post, but yours in particular, so you know where you were at.

I think the Folding @ Home thread needs to closed and new one started with the basic information (e.g. how to run multiple instances of F@H, the new clients available, etc.) to get started rewritten. A lot of the thread has been dead for years. I can perhaps do some of this or all of it if it will be sticked in favor of the old thread.

You know, due to power prices, I can't really afford to keep my computer on at night. However, my router is constantly running, I could fold on that, although I don't know how helpful a 250MHz chip would be. Is there a console version for Linux?

There is one available for download. I don't know if it is console or not...

Tonight, for the first time, I found myself trying to use the search feature for a post that I'd seen before, but couldn't remember when.
In a search that returned hundreds if not thousands of hits, I had no way to sort them, or skip to the end.
By default the search was oldest to newest, with no way to alter the display to newest to oldest, or to skip to the end.
I was left trying to page through at 5 pages maximum.
The additional sort functions should be easily accomplished.

Ditto on the above.

Also thinking of any way to auto-close/lock topics that haven't had a post in over a year (or something of the sort).

I have received two private messages that should have been replied directly to the thread. I think something needs to be more clear than "Send Message" so that new users don't reply to an individual rather than the thread. "Private Message" would be better but I think someone could come up with something even better than that.

Two, well, maybe you need to try to understand some of the postings, before you just smack them down. I'm begining to wonder if you actually have a job, based upon your postings. But that may just be me.

Huh? They were messages from new users (both users have under 10 posts). One was trying to reply to what I said in a thread and ended up sending a PM rather than a response to the thread. The other, I am not sure.


Edit: Since it is relevant to the discussion, here is the PM's (user names withheld):
Aug 20

Hi thanks for your reply. I brough the laptop from a friend but he cant remember the user password so we were trying to reinstall the OS, but we need it to bootup from the cd-rom.
So we need to get into the bios but it is asking for password.

Thanks for replying. I actually have yahoo as my home page on firefox as well so there isn't a problem there.

Note the first statement in both. :P

I'm not attacking anyone here. I think these mistakes are easy to prevent...
