TREE VIEW = USELESS
« on: September 19, 2007, 12:32:51 am »

Is there something that I am missing or is "tree view" completely and utterly useless? Every time I go from one screen to another I find myself clicking on the "flat view" button because I find it to be more practical in every way and I find it quite annoying to have to go from "tree view" to "flat view" at every screen change within the forum.

Am I the only one out there that feels this way???

Oh, God, no, it was Chevy vs Ford, PC vs Mac, now we have flat vs tree?

Fine.

If I can use tree view intelligently, anyone can and you have a serious problem if you can't.

Could I use flat view?

Don't know, don't care. Get over it.

There is a difference between saying "I can't use tree" and saying "tree is useless" and if YOU can't tell which one I said then YOU have a serious problem. To remedy this problem I advise that you start by getting your head out of your ass.

Why don't you explain how having a list of thread titles and names + having to click on them to read the posts one at a time makes more sense then having a list of the posts themselves in the order they were posted?

It makes more sense because you can tell what post is being responded to, which you can't do with out clicking on the link in flat view. The order the posts were made in has no relevance to the way the thread breaks into sub threads. What I wonder is why it so important to you that you have to post about it. Whichever view you like you can set up in your preferences. Get over yourself.

It sounds like you agree with me in that flat view makes more sense.

Just because I made this post does not mean that it is "so important." This area is for feedback...right? So as I understand it you and ernie (you need to tell him to change his alias to his full name BTW) want this kind of stuff. I know that there are plenty of people that think this tree view thing is useless. The thought that tree is useless crossed my mind a few times so I figured I might as well make a post about it.

I see nothing egotistical about what I said here. Smart-ass maybe, but only in response to unprovoked smart-ass comments made to me.

Chill Mark.

This isnt a life or death thing. Razz

Some people like tree view.
Some people like flat view.

Both have their positive points.
Both have their negative points.


Use whatever works best for you.

No, that's NOT what Mac said.  He said "in flat view, you can't tell when replies branch."  Have you ever used Usenet?  THREADING (or "tree view") is how it's done, so you can tell easily WHO is replying to WHOM.

Hobbs, don't be an asshole.  Ernie is the WEBMASTER.  Mark Herman, who owns this site, is fine with Ernie using one name, so I suggest you get over it.  You might get along better at Harmony Central.

I suggest you reconsider what you bring here, and what you take away..  You come off as a whiny, petulant jerk when you post like this.  You have a choice in what "view" you use.  If you like flat view and dont' mind not being able to tell who replied to whom, or if you're on dialup (you can see all messages without having to reload all the advertising graphics with every click) by all means use what makes you happy, that's why there is a choice.

You can set Flat View as default in your user control panel. Then you don't have to keep clicking it every day.

Incorrect. The default view does not change anything. You always have to click flat view. The setting in control panel doesn't stay.

PS: I agree with tree view being useless.

Its a common occurrence on internet forums that people are more dickish and rude than in real life.

Take a deep breath! Smile!

No, not at all. The default view changes to whatever you want it. You just have to enter your password to make any changes stay.

Ive been using flat view for years.
