Hi folks

 

I am looking for some people who can give feedback on a small feature added to the forums page - released but visible only to beta testers.

 

It just shows the most recent discussions you participated on - similar to the most recent forums you have visited. 

 

Anyone who wants in please send me a PM and post feedback here after testing.

Moderators should automatically be beta-tester. Can you check the forums listing page and let me know about the "Most recent topics"?

Should we have the standard sub-forum icon or use the same icons as the thread list (below)?

 

Should it use the same "Last reply style" or keep it as is (below)?

On top of those two questions posted before, I also would like to know how useful is this feature for you.

Initial impressions: 
Almost as useful as using live.

 

i'd probably want most visited forum and recently updated to be swapped around though so it's at the top.

 

 

 

no complaints for it, will keep having a play though.

Though I'm not a beta tester I know I'd find it useful to be able to see updates to forums I'd actually participated in

At first glance, it looks like the same content as the right-hand content of Live, which I have set to load by default for Geekzone.

Yes, it's (just a smaller set). The reason for this being in the forums list page is because Geekzone Live is not as used as the list page.

Thanks, done.

 

Later today I will swap the sections as suggested above. - topics you participated, most visited sub-forums, all sub-forums list, private sub-forums.

Looks good, I even prefer it to the commonly used forums. I'd agree for it being higher up than the commonly used forums as well, maybe run a poll?

 

Or is there a way we could strip the content down to a smaller subset of info (heading) and stack on desktop views?
