I usually access the forum by scrolling the "View the most recent posts on the forum." list. I guess I'm not alone in doing that.

If you want to do that, why not just go straight to this page instead of the forum homepage:-
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=recent

cheers, Martin

We might think about that if that's what ' everyone wants'  .. please reply in here if you think this is a good/bad idea.

Obviously it will never happen. People almost always check this thread when experiencing a problem.

I'll take MP99 suggestion - thx!

That upcoming calendar is very useful and I didn't know about it until pagheca pointed it out.  I think that would be very helpful to have at the top of the page.  However, I don't need to see the stats at the top of the page everyday.

Same. That upcoming events calender belongs up there but not forum stats. Also the search within topic function has been great! very useful.

I think the link I posted above is really useful.

http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=unreadreplies

It shows you just the threads to which you have contributed that have new replies since you last viewed them.  I'd still like to have a link to that location at the top of the forum.

I personally like things the way they are, just throwing my two cents out there!

Thanks, very nice indeed.

It's a pity IMHO that all these suggestions and hints are in the same hodgepodge. Further suggestion: let people free to create separated thread? My case is typical. I suggested something but unless you access the thread through the "view recent post" list, or wander around, you will never see it.

EDIT: only one additional remark. Do not assume that older post are "above". As many commenters seem not to know there is an option in the profile allowing to put  newer posts first, rather than below.

Via the main search page?

In Chrome I get:

"Each word must be at least two characters long." - So perhaps the "3" is throwing it...but if that's what you're doing.

No it's when you search trough the search bar on top of a Topic page (the DSCVR attempt 3 thread for example). I can reproduce it, so let me try to fix this :)

Okay, that happens when you search for something and there are no results. Should be fixed now

Regarding the 'quick' access to the various lists (recent, unread etc..).. what do you think about this ? Not intrusive and your default view would remain the same

Jup, I had to scrub the relaunch yesterday because we had a launch event or something  ;)

I expect them to be back this weekend.

That looks pretty clean to me.  I'd be up for something like that.

Well, since the calendar is now getting updated (trying!) I think it's pretty handy and having upcoming events at the bottom means no one probably sees it.  And since the calendar link was unpopulated for so long, maybe people don't know it's even active yet.  So, yes, I'd put that at the top.  I don't have an opinion about forum stats.

I concur we should make the calendar more visible.

This post makes me very sad, but I have been thinking about it for a while and received a note suggesting it, but I think we have to change the forum menu running order to move the Shuttle sections down the list. They just aren't active enough for them to be where they are, but there's no way I'm merging them into one post Shuttle section.

These orbiters are our foundation. They should forever have their own sections. And we'll be looking to do some redux coverage, do more for anniversaries (like the 10 year STS-114 anniversary) and so on.

But yeah, I'm going to have to move them down the running order.
