* The browser tab should be name of the forum, not just "MSDN Forums"
* Forum name somewhere on the page, preferrable a clickable path
* "Mark all read" functionality is needed
You should be able to actually put your comments directly in the article. I am going to add them as last points
This is a useful list. And I appreciate the constructive tone.
i really like your "quick and dirty suggestion for some Look and Feel changes"
Hi Naomi, You have really done an awesome job with this article. I also faced one issue today in forum and you had that covered too, that was there is no way to know who marked by reply as answer.
Naomi, I agree as well, that I like what you're suggesting. And hopefully we can improve the navigation tools with a watched thread icon, page numbers, etc.
For others reading this, I've also put together a pros and cons list from our private MVP DL:
I still don't understand why was the previous excellent forums UI abandoned? So after 2 years of "improvements" we will be back where we were a week ago.
Edited to show that including the name of the OP and the name and time of the last reply has been implemented.
Naomi, Thanks for putting all these together at one place. Great initiative.
