Much like our beloved Nigel, the sewing circle is no longer in action. The Singapore Forum will be kept up so the wealth of information collected over the years can still be found and used, but there won't be anything new.

Thanks to everyone that made The Singapore Forum, in all it's guises, a fun, informative and comfortable place to hang out while dodging work.

The Singapore Forum Mourners Society can be found on FaceBook. Just click on the icon below.

As you can see, a Quick Reply feature has been added to the board.

At the moment the QR box is open and ready for typing. The other option is to keep it hidden and click the Quick Reply button wqill open it up. Click the QR button to see how it works.

What would you prefer, the box always shown or the box hidden until you click QR ?

DEpends, if you click once and it drops down/opens up, then that would be ok. Having to load a separate page would be a hassle.

Yes, that's the feature. One click and it drops it down without loading a page. I see the merits of both. The page looks cleaner without the box but it's an extra click which some might say defeats the purpose of having a QR feature at all.

Only issue I have with quick reply is that every time I open a 'view topic' page there's going to be a bit more 'stuff' downloaded if there's a 'quick reply' area at the bottom of each page. I think the page looks 'cleaner' without the extra bits at the bottom. Loading a page for replying isn't a huge issue to me.

It's great that we can use the control panel to supress the display of avatars and smilies. Here's a challenge: 2 or more sets of user preferences per account: You could use one for home (full glorious display of everything), and another for work or when on a slow or limited connection (lean and clean, supressing all the pretty stuff).

My workplace has a download quota, and if you're out & about and paying for wireless broadband it can become poisonously expensive here in Oz.

If you wanted to get really carried away you could have an alternate display mode that makes the page look like a spreadsheet/database/something work related.

Due to a bug in IE that moves the focus of the cursor to the QR box, hence dragging you to the bottom of the thread, I've had to change the default for now. If the votes change and I can find a fix, I'll implement it.

Different profiles would be tough bender, as would a style that resembled a spreadsheet.

Figured as much for both, and happy with things the way they are.
