..... (and after attending the preview), I'm not crazy about it. And I'm especially not crazy about the ten suggestions telling me what this may be similar to. I've been here too long for some algorithm to tell me what I really wanted to say.......

I'm guessing that this discussion will get lost in ........... off-line.

Let's see.

Exactly correct. And we all will, like we have the changes in the past. And who knows, I might even learn to like it!

Some things will never be the same...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Learn how to game it

I've been scouting out the older threads, and it's highly unlikely I'll be able to keep up on them like I used to.
Finding something to pounce upon is too slow... I loose the impetus.
I liked how the information was packed tightly before, for all it's shortcomings.

But hey, have you seen how sometimes, a glitch will land you on a really barebone version of the page... no colors, no formatting, just raw threads.
Never seems to last through a reload of course, but maybe that view could be of use...

That's what's behind the slow, clunky feel. Couldn't quite peg it.

that it takes too long?
Anyway, I knew it was going to sound bad, no matter what, so I guess I gave up on pre-emptively cleaning it.

One thing that might help; I put my browser to display the whole thing at 80% zoom... fits a bit more stuff into one screenful.

When a question or discussion is started

by maxwell edison In reply to What ten suggestions

An algorithm evaluates the title line and makes suggestions as to what it may be like. It's designed to avoid having redundant questions posted.

Or maybe a tool-hat blackbar, either one.
There's no auto-complete suggest dropdown by default, so it's on your end.

They do have an algorithm in place. This is the relevant text copied from that link (although I'm not certain the link will work. This is a test. This is only a test.) :)

"Revamped Q&A - We have separated out the Q&A and updated the features to make it more intuitive to post questions and to both receive and provide answers. We have a new intelligent feature that, as a user writes a question, looks for similar questions that have already been answered and presents them to the user in order to save duplicate questions. We???ve also set up a separate option for respondents to ask the original poster to clarify the question vs. someone who wants to simply answer the question."
