Re: "Go to TOP" button

Seriously Misti, just install a mouse gestures addon for firefox or chrome. I click the middle button on my mouse, move up and left, release the middle button and then I'm at the top of the page. I'd do that gesture even if there were a button to take me up to the top.

Re: "Go to TOP" button

Wow, OP taking this thread pretty seriously and starting fights out of nothing.

Seriously, I believe any add-ons can be a bit of a hassle when forum software is upgraded, and considering a major upgrade is in the cards some time in the next several months, a button for something that all of us already have a button on our keyboard for doesn't seem likely to happen.

Edit to add: Wow, I just reread that exchange between you and plaaynyde again, and I'm just not getting it. Think you pretty seriously misunderstood his first post.

Ok, sorry if I misunderstood - didn't understand why he would want a BASTARD option. What was that suppose to mean, thought he was cursing at me.

Please accept my apology Bobo and you too plaaynyde.

Re: "Go to TOP" button

Honestly don't see what the big deal of adding a button such as this would mean for this type of large forum, when you have so many other useless buttons on here already.

As I've mentioned before, I already have it on my Firefox browser and I love it - especially useful when typing in the dark.

All I'm suggesting is that you test it out, see how it goes - you might be surprised with the positive results you receive from the members.

No need for apologies, at least not to me.

Polls (or poles as we like to call them) are sometimes done very humorously on 2+2, and often one of the voting options is "bastard".

:

Honestly had started off as a humor based thread - until I saw the "bastard" line. I honestly didn't understand it. My bad...I did not know that it's used as an option for GTFO?!

See, altho this 'pole' didn't slide the way I wanted it to....least I learned something from it huh?

If you have the power - then by all means go ahead and change the GTFO to "bastard" if you like. Altho, I think most will prefer the GTFO option for me right now!! sighs.

Once again, please accept my apology plaaynde. Peace

I usually just grab the scroll bar and pull it all the way up. Only requires one little swipe of the mouse

Accepted. Now you know about the "Bastard" option, that has to be included in any serious pole on 2+2

What do you think..., should I redo this pole and make a new one to include that option?
















j/k - Bobo would ban my arse so fast, I'd get 3rd degree burns sliding down that new pole!!!

Re: "Go to TOP" button

I wouldn't say you have to. GTFO?! is excellent too.







Maybe we should use the word "poll" after all, just sayin.

Re: "Go to TOP" button

Please don't add it. Most people have the functionality from something else (keyboard button, mouse gesture, etc.), there are fast ways to do it even without (scroll bar, trackpad gesture, etc.), and it would therefore be nothing more than clutter for the great majority.

And clutter stinks.

Re: "Go to TOP" button

Well 'with all due respect', plaaynde n' atakdog - n' everyone else who voted negatively....

The TOP link already exists on the forum, just in a silly spot imo. Therefore it shouldn't be considered clutter - if it's already on here.




In my opinion, the quick reply button is more clutter than anything else - do we really need TWO links to the QUICK REPLY?







Altho, I totally understand the purpose for it just don't see the necessity to have 2 links to it. For those that don't know what it's intended purpose is - it's for the members who don't want to jump to the bottom of last page in a thread, in order to use the quick reply box. But wouldn't having 2 links to the QUICK REPLY be considered more clutter to the forum, than having 1 little button to the TOP?

I also understand about the add-on hassle that Bobo Fett mentioned earlier, and since they will be upgrading soon - I would still like them to simply consider testing this TOP add-on, see how it goes - if it's not too much trouble to add.

Thanks for your time and for listening to my suggestion. Hopefully it's tried n' tested....if not, I will still live - happily.

Peace all......

misty.

Re: "Go to TOP" button

The top link discussed in post 49 is tucked away at the bottom of the page, in an area where there's usually no reason to look and in which it's become sort of standard for pages to stash their — yes — clutter, out of the way where it doesn't interfere at all with functionality nor much with aesthetics. The proposal at hand, if I understand it, is to add a button (and an ugly one at that) to every post, where it would be impossible to miss and would detract significantly from the aesthetics of the site and, in my opinion, from the pleasantness of reading threads.

Your point about the quick reply button is apposite — but it's not an argument for inclusion of a fourth button, but rather for removal of that third one. But that's not up for polling.

Judging from the poll, some people like this idea. You've explained why they might. I don't. I've said why.
