Usability general comment

I am browsing discussions with specific tag and that is limited to certain number of posts until I get to "Show more" button. Great, I press on "Show More" and another N discussions are loaded, that I repeat maybe twice until finding an interesting subject line.

So, I click on that "interesting" post and read it and that is nothing special, so I want to get back and expect to get back to the exact same place that I left. Instead I am pushed to the very top of the list and need to press "Show More" buttons again and again to get back... :(

    2 tips:

    Come more often to the community then you wont have the need to use the more button

    Use the right mouse click and open the question in a new tab

      I think the issue is not relevant to the fact of how often one visits the comunity, you simply can be searching for something in any area different from your usual area of interests.

      Opening dozens of new tabs and next closing them, yeahhh... a good workaround that rather sounds like an excuse.

      Maybe that is exactly a sign of attitude that keeps the community struggling on getting back to the same level of activity?

        Of course it is a workaround, but if you crashed your Ferrari and got a Cinquecento as replacement then you simply cant drive races.

        Believe me, we pushed them hard over the last 18 month and something is on the way, just hope it is not just a Ferrari sticker to put on the Cinquecento.

    The first rule of SCN is to never just click on anything. Always do right-click -> new tab. Always do Ctrl-A / Ctrl-C before clicking on Submit. Take screenshots of every action because if anything goes wrong you'll be expected to prove you're not hallucinating.

    It's funny that this is the only thing you've picked up on usability here. Try opening the Activity stream. Eventually a message will pop up saying something along these lines: "OK, that's it, you've been sitting here too long, so I'm going to refresh and I don't care how many times you've clicked the moar button or where you were, buh-bye".

    Not to mention just straight up bugs.

    That would be one that makes the top of my complaint list. Yes, I do always copy. Yes, now I open in another page.

    It doesn't work the best. <sigh>. But I share your pain. I'm sure lots and lots and many more agree with you.
