I've been doing some work to try and make the scripting forum more useful. This includes some permanent links to threads (like the "what's changed" threads) as well as a link to the "Dos and Don'ts". You can see them on the overview page here.
If anyone has suggestions of other threads to make "sticky" or other ways to improve the forum, please let me know...
Hi, the new optional material at the top forces the most important material -- the Discussions -- out of view upon entering the page (using a 22" monitor). Why are you forcing me to scroll the page each and every time I come to it? Can you put the new material to the side instead, out of the way? Thanks.
The "optional material" is only visible in the Overview view. If you do not want to see it, you can bookmark the Discussions view.
I did respond to your request, and moved the part about forum conduct to the side. I hope it's better...
Harbs, please delete this post after/if you've fixed this, but at the top of this forum it says 'If you have what to add' which is sort of bad engrish..... Just not a good look when coming in here for the first time is all I'm saying... Everything else looks all nice and shiny though!
I'm not sure why you think it's bad engrish. I don't think it is grammatically incorrect.
Would something like "Please post pertinent information in the appropriate place." work better for you?
I think it's advisable to keep the level of vocabulary at a low grade-level, because for a lot of the visitors, English is their second language.
Maybe change "what" to "info" or "information"?
I was genuinely not trying at all to be nit picking, just the way I talk 'what to' didn't make any sense at all to me, I puzzled over it for a few minutes. What you said explains it, changing 'what' to 'info' or 'information' is IMHO much easier to understand. BTW I come from N.Z. if that's relevant
