Folder-specific Outline View!!! (whoooooooohoooooooooooo!) You may have already noticed the "Display more of this discussion" links at the top of very long discussions where older messages have fallen out of the 500 most recent messages display. Next week, we'll be adding folder-specific Outline Views.

You will soon see a "check your email preferences" page. The page will only be displayed once to each user, so it shouldn't be a major source of complaints. We just want to make sure that everyone's email preferences are set the way they want them to be set. (This is the one that allows other members to email you via your profile...or not.)

Within the next couple of weeks

* Members will be able to post without previewing. We will still have the "your message will be posted shortly" page because it's a help to newbies who might otherwise be confused by the experience after they clicked "post" and because it has some navigational aids.

* We will be adding "Next page" links to the top of archive pages to make it easier to tab through them quickly.

* We have also requested date tabs for archives (so members can access old archives more easily).

* We will add a hyperlink back to the message board at the end of the breadcrumb trail on Search pages.

Buggy things update....

The "black hole" between folder view and outline view should now be fixed. Let us know if you find that 11th place discussion 'vanishing' between views.

QA is testing load times for dial-up and cable connections, for boards with and without images. They will compare load times for boards with load times for editorial pages.
