Suggestion: for "subscribed threads" & "top of page" buttons


Hi all,

althought I use slackware, I can tend to be very lazy, and I think these two features would benefit us aging, lazy people

1. a button at the bottom of thread views for "top of page"
2. a button at the bottom of thread views for "subscriptions" , which would be the same link that "quick links" -> "subscribed threads" yields.
3 or just duplicate the whole top banner at the top of page at the bottom of each forum thread page.

Thank you for your consideration of me conserving vital calories while surfing

1. Do you mean the one marked "Back to Top" which sits right above the Quick Reply box? The one that looks like this: " Previous Thread | Back to Top | Next Thread "?

2. I would agree to this, but I do know that Jeremy likes to conserve the page real estate. That may work against the suggestion.

3. See 2.

Ah, the age old question Advertising helps keep LQ going, what do we replace the revenue stream with?

Mmm, you would have thought so, but 6 years in and it's still mainly advertising that keeps us going. With the size of the forums (threads + membership, etc) we need to have high end expensive servers to stop the forums self-destructing on an hourly basis.

If anyone knows of a wealthy philanthropist that will happily donate money to the forums to keep them going, I'm sure Jeremy will happily stop advertising, otherwise....

As for number 3, having duplicate nav items in multiple spots really ends up being confusing and counter intuitive, so it's something we try to avoid.

ok.

well if not for anything can we talk to the advertiser "dice" and ask them to put a picture of a cute girl there in front of the server farm? I gotta see guys like that all day? LOL

I love these forums, truly been a help to me in my switch to linux.

bye4now.
