Replying to a thread kicks you out to the thread listings
« on: October 22, 2010, 11:57:31 am »
On most forums after you reply to a thread you are returned to the thread, either at the beginning or the end, so you can view your reply.  But the new forum kicks you out to the thread listings instead.  Is that something that can be changed?

You can change this with a user controlled profile setting and previously addressed in this post...

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I've looked a few times before posting this thread and I just can't seem to find that option.

Btw, I liked the old forum better because it used to censor Bionic Bob when he was getting too verbose.  >:D

Well the umpteenth search finally allowed me to find the box I needed to check to fix my problem.  Of course it had to be after I publicly stated that I couldn't find it. >:(

Another solution would be to not post, the solution BBAR takes (not so much). >:D

By the way, I'm really starting to notice how BBAR has become the go to whipping boy.  This seems patently unfair since he does actually contribute a great deal to COGdom.  He was, for a while, Mr KiPass, enlightening us all on everything wrong with KiPass (with BDFs help).  He taught us to at least get the damn bike off the trailer BEFORE claiming a CDA number.  And, most importantly, he taught us that nobody can see silver bikes.  He really doesn't deserve the abuse he gets.  Wish I could help stop it. O:-)
