Forums Letters to the COW Team Suggestion for forums

  • Suggestion for forums

    How about the ability to list all the threads with 0 (zero) responses so users who are in an “answering” type mood can quickly view those posts which have no responses and answer as appropriate?

    So are you saying that you’re prone to be in answering type mode?

    Agreed, this seems like a good idea. I have seen this around other forums and it works well.

    [Shane Egan] “Agreed, this seems like a good idea. I have seen this around other forums and it works well.”

    Since Dave posted this, I started poking around some of the special-interest forums I visit (iPad, etc.), and am seeing that too. I like it!

    We obviously have way more posts than most of those folks, so I’m not sure exactly how we might pull it off, but worth checking into.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Okay – this feature has been added to the “View Posts By” dropdown. You can now choose view unanswered to have the current list filter out all answered posts and show just the unanswered.

    Once again, Abraham, I have to reach to my box of “The Man” buttons, and pin another on your nearly covered shirt.

    Thanks for the cool button =)

    I might add that you get a heftier amount of posts when the date range is extended first as most forums seems to have the majority of their posts answered.
