Things you miss from the old CD


#107

You can use the chain icon below a post to share a link to that specific post.


#108

Looks like you can also start a new post from said comment link as well, which will certainly be useful.


#109

Not sure there’s an option for that.

If you hit the ‘Reply’ button, the new post will have a link at the top right back up to the entire post you’re quoting if people want to reference that.


#110

I miss the ability to block/ignore users. :shushing_face:


#111

You can also quote part of the post and it adds the link to the whole post.

I actually really like this. No more pages after pages of 1k word posts being quoted over and over again.


#112

This. The ignore list on the old CD was one of the best features and it made things a lot more bearable. There’s a feature that allows you to mute notifications from specific users, but nothing that allows you to ignore them entirely.


#113

I miss the old CD “home” screen. It was very easy to see everything at a glace: new posts on the right. announcements in the middle, media on the left. It made sense. This endless scrolling is irritating.


#114

I miss this too. The announcements not as much because it took up so much of the screen.


#115

Yeah I’m having a hard time with that part. I’d really like to see something in place to better identify users and what team they’re from (and a Blue Alliance link).


#116

You can see the team number of the user if you click on the user’s avatar.


#117

This was pretty fun though


#118

If folks wouldn’t mind editing their AKA section with their team number it’d be nice. I like seeing it in each post. Idk, it provides a little context for questions or posts.


#119

Users are currently unable to edit that … will work on a fix for that this weekend.


#120

The ability to view users by team number.


#121

A big thing that I miss is the White Papers and the Design drawings on the home page. As a coach with little background in Robotics they were a huge help.


#122

I’m suddenly OK with this restriction now.


#123

Its a minor thing but the ability to hover over a thread and preview the OP


#124

I miss the pictures one he left. I like pictures. I’m a visual person.


#125

Really missing the access through phone and tablet friendly apps. I’m trying to use the Discourse app, but it is simply terrible compared to Tapatalk. I reserve the right to reassess as I get used to this platform. I really appreciate this forum and the people who work hard to bring it to us, but right now this is a significant downgrade for me.


#126

I second this. It would be a nice thing to bring back.
