In some cases I guess it can help, though, such as news articles, so that it doesn't sound like self-promotion when a program is released or biased.

Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on March 29, 2016, 03:28:09 pmSo I was wondering: Should the Latest Active topics link on desktop view be made visible in mobile view somewhere? While our menus are easier to click since the last changes, I still find it annoying to have to try to open the right menu item then click the Latest active topics option there, and I'm sure I am not alone. I know we have another link to that page under WalrusIRC on the board index, but it's not always convenient.Also do you think it should instead be a direct navigation link like what Omnimaga had back then? That was very handy and in our case it would be even more handy since the menu is floating. I know it would clutter the menu bar a bit, but it's not like our menu bar is big anyway, and the Moderate stuff could easily be moved to the Admin tab anyway (for staff). Right now I often noticed that I find myself clicking the back button twice then scrolling down to access latest posts rather than doing a few trial and error clicks through the navbar. The option would still remain under the Forum dropdown as a duplicate.I also think it should be renamed to New Posts. What do you think?
Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on March 29, 2016, 08:43:05 pmWell, I wouldn't make the bar exactly like in the screenshot above. This was just to show what I mean by having New Posts as main link. The link would be placed between IRC and Downloads, most likely.And yeah, back in 2005-10, the site design fad was to give gaming-oriented sites as much character as possible and use special effects such as having a static star background behind div tags that contains asteroids, to give it the feel that you're in space or stuff like that. But then mobile devices got popular and people started liking simple designs again. I feel that default themes and overly simple designs are boring, though.

There is the Short URL box and View topic attachment links where we could put it? or perhaps inside the gray bar where it says Jump to: [forum name] GoThanks for the idea, by the way. I didn't think about adding one there. It would definitively be nice.Also, I can't stress this enough and various people mentioned it in the past few years: What keeps most project alives are replies, feedback and criticism, not to mention many authors are scared of double-posting when they have an update. I know that sometimes you don't have anything to add other than "Nice work, keep up the good work", but a lot of people gets motivated from those. In February, a lot of people participated to project topics, but this month and some other months I often found myself replying alone or having to double-post in my own topics. You don't need to own the platform the project is for in order to comment: That's what screenshots, videos and animated GIFs are for.
