Wall suggestion - Joel Noble

The new Wall is a vast improvement!

I do have one small suggestion: I think that the links on the topic list could do without the "&mc=5" portion of the link -- it seems to do nothing more than encode the number of postings in the thread being linked. The software doesn't need it -- it'll figure out how many postings are there when you follow the link, even without it there. [try it by manually editing the links -- works just fine without it!]

So why do without it? Well, if your web design people leave the "&mc=" part off of the links in the thread list, that will allow our browsers to indicate for us which threads we've read before, by having them be a different color than the ones we haven't. Their position near the top of the main page will still alert us to the fact that the topic has recent activity -- no functionality is lost.

As it stands, since the thread link changes every time someone posts to the thread (by updatding the "&mc=" at the end), our browsers think it's a brand new link representing a topic it's never seen before, rather than being able to color them as something that has previously been read.

Thanks for everything!

    Welcome back, Dan

    just an extraneous little post to bump this thread back onto the main page, in case you missed it while you were out.
