  • @davehawley: I know. But it looks like I was the only one getting its purpose ^^
    I'd probably have written the same and I second your request.
    I amended the headline, but I don't believe that this is going to change anything ^^

  • I realized it, too, but then I actually took the time to read the OP. Many people just skim (if they read it at all), then jump right in without truly realizing what they're responding to.

    I was tempted to post myself, just because it seemed to become the de facto response to the thread, but I was too lazy to be bothered, heh.

  • Let's all blame @Leushino 😛 (my apologies, James)... that's where it first seemed to go off the rails. Actually, I read the original post and largely understood it but got influenced too by the original title's ambiguity, and by the time I had run down through all the other posts having their own rather different focii, my own thought train was partially derailed. (Though I do claim partial credit for having at least addressed the original thread context in part of my first post).

    Perhaps this can serve as a good model for how a thread unintentionally derails and how a simple title can be taken in two completely different ways...

  • LOL!
    Anyway the new amended thread title should make the reason for this thread a bit clearer!
    Thanks cristoph!

  • Since I'm trying to moderate this vast amount of posts I read most of them and I guess that about 50% of people in here only read headlines. Another 30% do read the post and the rest may read one or the other comment if you're lucky.
    If that shouldn't be true, I can't tell how people come up with all that out-of-topic/duplicate comments...

    @davehawley: You're welcome 😉

  • I take it that you can't make threads "sticky" yet?
    Another thing to add to the long and ever growing list of things missing from this forum I'm afraid.

  • No, I don't have access to labels. So I can't turn it into an announcement. Sorry.

  • Since I'm trying to moderate this vast amount of posts I read most of them ...

    Heh. So there were a whole lot of things they didn't tell you when they offered you the job, eh? Thanks greatly for what you're doing, and to the other mods and their efforts as well, both here and in the old My Opera forums. It can be a thankless job at times, but it's truly a necessary one. Now, I'll stop contributing to the OT chatter and back out... but thanks again.

  • haha yeah silly me. Always saying "yes" and asking afterwards what I just agreed on 😇
    I'm an extension developer as well. And THAT is an unthankful job. Being a mod is far less frustrating concerning people's feedback...

  • Indeed, I'm to blame for at least one post going astray but I immediately followed up with: "But I can see Dave's request as very reasonable and support it whole-heartedly. Posting which version one has when one has an issue, is very helpful." Anyone following that post and continuing astray has only him/herself to blame. ;-p

  • Another one for 12.14 here.

    And yes, I do get the point of the topic, I'm just going with the flow and adding to the fluff.

  • I am very sorry, but I didn't recognize, that this thread is not made for comments...

    Use Opera 20.
