Not sure if it has been reported, but I seem to be missing the indication on icons next to posts that shows I participated in them.
i think i removed these in my effort to streamline and reduce noise.. any thoughts on a good way to bring them back -- assuming folks find them important (i didn't).
i should say there is a nice new page under the Go To menu for showing topics you started or topics you participated in, which i do think is useful.
I'll try this perspective.
There's a "quick post" - someone bangs off an easy note.
But if they hit "Preview" (or hits Post and Modify! I'm *terrible* for that!!*) , it brings up bigger ranges of things ... so go full suite. No shortcuts. Images are kinda a thing here. I for one am so not a fan of Google's "let's strip out a third of your options and make the rest into a gear icon".
So if we get as far as "Preview" or "Post/Modify", then give us a full powered image insertion engine with everything anyone could want in three ways. It's a Penny Wise - Pound Foolish problem. You spent YEARS planning out how to deal with tour growing maze code. So don't go all "slim streamlined because Google made no one want a waist size bigger than 28" approach.
We're DC. You're Mouser, the Minor Deity. You just got the biggest fundraiser in DC history. (Or close). So let's not get too fancy with "you should know how to do X". That's what sinks a lot of small projects. DC is just about to get a notch bigger somehow. So put it in. I posted an example earlier. I couldn't duplicate the ease of the old system with less than 10 min of hard sharp work with keywords.
We like Images (in our own form of moderation). Arizona Hot posts very little else. I've thundered across the web that our Basement is like very little anywhere else on the web and fixes like 30 mod problems. So let's do another one. Put in a full scale Image insertion engine. I was happy with the drop down. But you noticed I had to change my sig and even then it didn't work right.
((Post and Mod. See? I just did it. Because I have been burned WAY too many times working on a post and diff servers have diff time out periods and then your browser crashes and loses it all! Better post part of a comment and tweak it, than wreck your time!)
