We'll take a look at this as well. I'm not positive of the specific need that setup is addressing, so I'll need to do some digging. Josh or myself will follow up tomorrow.Uh...dislike. If you could pass that on I think we'd all appreciate it. Very prominent, seemingly useless.
Yes, the issue is on mobile, and yes, navigating to previous or next thread at the top of the thread page seems useless.It's possible to navigate to previous thread-page from the top if you're on a computer/laptop. However, if you're on your phone the previous button will bring you to the previous thread. What's even the point of that?
That is an issue. It appears to be a bug. I'm not sure why those thread prefix's are auto attaching to those threads. I will investigate! Thanks all.Errr… not an issue, but why are random threads suddenly getting the How To tag?
The cool emoji is in the top-group, though.
Having been frustrated by that odd chronology on the 'New posts' tab, I started using the 'What's New' tab instead. I now discover that that omits loads of new posts.The order of stories at the new posts tab seems to be all over the place.
The times of the most recent post on the top 26 items on that list, in order, are:
(It is now 10.45 pm, I will put those less than an hour ago as the time, not "n minutes ago"; all pm unless otherwise stated)
10.52 pm yesterday
10.35 pm yesterday
Look at those last two: the thread last posted on 24hrs and 10 minutes ago is listed above the one from 17 minutes ago. The second newest post on the New Posts list is 26th on that list, the newest is 15th.
Not what I would call user friendly.
What if it's relevant? Sometimes a Rider Thread might be dormant for an extended period - if the rider in question isn't showing much - but when there is a good result; expect the discussion to take off again!Necroposting (resurrecting very old threads or article comments) is disallowed.
Probably because it makes better sense as it is organised now.
I guess I just always took it for granted that even though the Clinic was technically in the Road Cycling section, it was obviously for any kind of doping. Even personal doping, but I think the advice here would be don't!Probably because it makes better sense as it is organised now.
For example, technically (not practically) you were not allowed to discuss doping in other sports than cycling because the clinic used to be a subsection of professional cycling, and therefore those discussions would be off topic there and illegal anywhere else on the forum. That always bugged the logician that I am. I'm glad they realised what a big problem that was.
there were many sections almost completely deserted, and too many subforums were just called "general"...
Great question! We never want to paint with too broad a brush with the rules, because it's super easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole. However, a generally safe strategy if a thread is many months (or years) old, is to create a new topic when it's back in the news and link to the old thread for context.Didn't know where to post this, but I have a bit of a question about the Rules:

Though I will admit that I'm a bit confused about the recent talk about Klöden's chances for a GT top 10...
Well that's not how it actually works in practice, is it? Look, for instance, at The Clinic and its many, many, "many months (or years) old" threads that come back to life when new content comes along. Please don't suggest that such threads have to be killed and reborn with linkbacks, cause that's just *** up and defeats the intended purpose of many of these threads.However, a generally safe strategy if a thread is many months (or years) old, is to create a new topic when it's back in the news and link to the old thread for context.
