Removal of [CH User] My Profile one-click?

WHY did you remove the one-click and force us to use the pop-down menu? I click "My Profile" ALL the time to get back to those threads I've commented on.

Now we have to drag down to our Profile to get there? Stupid.

I *never* log out of CH, unless it forces me to re-log in. So keeping Settings and Log Out in that pop-down menu makes sense. Having the "My Profile" there is requiring us to drag down to it. Does it take a lot of time? No, but if a User has a lot of threads to read it can be very irritating.

  1. LW, from where I sit, I can still click directly on my username to get to my profile, without actually pulling down the menu.

        OK, I just tested it a couple of times. Yes, it works, but it's definitely slower to resolve back to the profile vs. the previous format.

    1. Hi LindaWhit,

      On a desktop computer, if you click directly on your username, it will still bring you to your profile. No need to hover and select.

      If you are on an iPad, you will need to tap twice on your name in order to get there directly, since a single tap will reveal the dropdown.

      See #9 in my list of things from today's release:

      1. I had a chance to try this on a faster connection this morning. I find a lag as well clicking directly on my username in the upper profile to get to my profile. It's not as noticeable as on slower dsl connection, but still there nonetheless compared to earlier use.

          I find that as well. And because the drop-down box is so close to the username, I find it takes me longer (although, granted, it's nanoseconds) to make sure my cursor is properly positioned. I'm getting used to it, but I still find the proximity of the box to the name a little annoying. I don't see any reason the box couldn't be a bit further down since it doesn't impinge on any real estate. At least, not on my iMac screen.

            I've already become accustomed to positioning the upraised finger :) just above my screen name. Works great. Just a thought.
