Link to main page on top of forum

Post by Ragnarok » Fri Oct 01, 2010 12:26 am

I find it annoying that the link at the top of the forums to get to the main page of the forums is always in the same spot. It's really annoying when you are at the bottom of a really long page and you have to scroll all the way up in order to leave the forums. If you could make it not connected to the forum so that it follows your scroll, it would be so much more convenient.

Get in the habit of using the <HOME> key, that is its intended purpose. Usually having a top follow downwards loses screen reading space, and most people hit the back button or just type in my.bzflag.org/bb again to return the home page.

It may be a convenience to you, but if you can utilize other conveniences already built in, such as the <HOME> key, then it will simplify your life on more than just this webpage too.

You're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist. You can either open stuff in a new tab, or you can hit the Home key like mentioned. Or there is also a "Board index" link at the very bottom of the page. And there is also a link at the bottom to return to the forum that the current thread was in (like here, there's a "Return to Forum Suggestions, Questions, and Issues").

So, yeah. There is no problem. Other then someone being lazy. ;)

I think what a lot of people don't realize is the handy move-me-to-the-top button at the bottom right of every post (Here's what I'm talking about -> http://cl.ly/aa9377dd97d298c20681)

Hope this helps a few of you ;)
