Question

Hi ALL,

How hard would it be to poll the content of the Microsoft servers for this forum and create a page

that had the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,...20...30...40...50..60...etc...[Last]

at the bottom like there used to be in the past?

I think to have 78000+ threads with 20 shown at a time with the Next word to click on is still somewhat tedious.

Additionally how hard would it be to offer to show 20 / 50 / 100 threads at time as an option?

How about it Microsoft? Maybe create a "Sister" page as an experiment and see which is more popular?

If anyone at Microsoft is reading this please take note that this current forum scheme is what put me ( and I guess a few others ) off from frequenting these forum pages.

Regards,

John

Hi Kevin,

I'll do that too.  :-)

It's been a while since I was on here and forgot there was a forum suggestion page.

Regards,

John

FWIW these are excellent suggestions.

Hi,

I really heartily agree. Another thing is navigating back. So why there are no controls for navigating at the top of the page.

And the worst thing is performance. It takes so unbelievable long to go to another page or loading the first page.

Its really hindering from work... (shouldnt it be supporting???)
