What Ever Happened To...

that Rogue's Gallery of participants that used to come up with each thread? Okay, okay. So I'm exposing how unobservant I can be at times, but I have no idea how long it's been gone. I'm missing it now because all of these ancient threads are being revived, and that's how I used to be able to tell if I'd already posted my two cents worth. Some of those threads are loooooooong, and I don't want to read every post to see whether I've already commented...

Any chance at all of bringing it back? It really was useful!!! I don't have a clue what to search for to see if it's already been discussed to death on Site Talk, so my apologies if I'm beating a dead horse.

    So search the page for your user name: control F, Caroline1. No need to read every (or any) post.

      THANK YOU! Or I could also use search on the edit menu, BUT... I still miss all those cute little pictures that told me who else is talking. Some times progress is a painful...

        Yes, I liked the "who's talking" feature as well (I think that's what it was called). it was interesting to see at a glance whether a thread had a host of participants, or was primarily a back-and-forth between two or three people.

    2. Hi Caroline1,

      We removed the "Who's Talking" box from discussion pages in early June. No plans to bring it back, though we are going to release a redesign in 3 weeks that we hope will make it easier to see who's participating in a discussion.

      Thanks, Meredith

        Sheesh! June? And it takes me until November to notice? So much for my keen powers of observation! They're dead! Thanks for the info, Meredith.
