I like nested forums. It's much easier to see who is replying to who. It also cuts back on [qu[b][/b]ote] tags. How about you?
:tongue:

With a threaded (nested) view it gets harder to read larger conversations because the available horizontal width gets too small. Flat view is simpler to read.

In case you weren't aware, these forums can be viewed in either format.

I was awear, but the majority of people don't click on the correct "Reply to this post" link so it makes it pointless.

Ahhh, but is the provider of a full-featured service also responsible for the intelligence level of its users?

This forum doesn't have a problem with large conversations.


You won't like it when I get angry.

True, this forum has an unusual (to me) way of displaying threaded mode. However it's annoying having to view each post individually like that, especially on dialup.

It would be nice to have an expanded nested forum option.
