Forum Questions (Questions about the Forum)

Ok, so no "official" answers yet but:

Is this now the official Orbital Forum?

If so, can we have the links back so we dont have to go to the Board index everytime we leave a thread?

A small request, but something that needs sorting imo.

Thankyou :D

is this the official one? it may be a "stop gap" while something else is re-invented ;) I hate no idea what the future if for loopz in the wonderful fragmented music business :)

ok, i think i know what you mean but maybe you should explain in a little more detail for my poor brain ;)

I think what Memly meant was when we click "Forum" from the official site that we can go to a board index page instead of the Loopz Blog link to Forums which doesn't actually have all of the forums (it's missing a link to "Gigs & Releases). But this may not be exactly what he meant.

Mem can you explain?

Ok... so here goes.

If I click on a thread in the music forum...I read it, leave some unfunny comment and then I want to look at what else I have not read in the music forum.

If I press back in the browser, then it doesnt acknowledge the thread being "read".
If I want to go back to the music thread then the only way (I think... I am a dumbass so you will probably correct me and embarrass me making me lurk around until my confidence has grown enough to make another stupid and irrelevant comment about something I probably dont know enough about... but anyway I digress, I should leave these issues for another time)

So, to get back to the "Music" forum from a music thread, the only way to do this is to hit thw "Board index" tab and then re-select the music forum. Am I right??

In other forums I visit, there is normally a line of tabs to take me to the subforums... I'm sure this site used to too?

Not really a big issue, but I like to do what I can for the community :lol:

Of course I'll keep posting... I like it here :wink:

Has that link ever been on the top of the page? Ever?

Maybe I'm getting confused with the other forums I go to.

Anyway, I still think the link would be more affective (or is it effective?) underneath the banner.

I thought about a campaign to give this request some movement, but I dont have the energy, or the motivation to be honest...

So I will just have to scroll down rather than up... will take some time to master, but with some practice I'm sure I can get there.

Thanks for all your help Steve 8)
