Rollover Info on topics

SzechuanosaurusSzechuanosaurus Registered User, ClubPA regular
You know you have the index page at the moment? Where when you roll over a forum link, a little box appears with a description of the forum?

Well, the forums at hexus use this with the thread links themselves, so when you hover ove a thread title, a box pops up with the text of the first post in it.

Wouldn't this be handy here, so you can get a look at what the post says without having to load a new page to discover that it's some shit you don't want to read or redundant information?

I don't know what the technical implications would be - whether it would cause the forum to take longer to load for example - and I guess youd have to restrict it to the first 50 letters or something but I think it would be kinda handy, especially when people use less than descriptive titles for their threads.

    That would hugely increase bandwidth.

    Its a good idea, but it would slow down the servers too much.

    As long as we are on the subject of adding little conveniences to the forums, I think it would be a good idea to add a button that allows me to order pizza. It doesn't have to be anything phenominal. Just a pizza. And it only has to work for me.

    I wondered. Hexus looks as though it probably has a lot less traffic than PA which is presumably how they get away with it.



    And Slung, your button...

    Just shove it in your sig. and it'll be with you wherever you go.
