Is everybody seeing stuff like the following picture in their topics?
I’m referring to the “This is the first time …” notification.
And just for the record, I’m not faulting @jaanus.luus in any way for this! Discourse caused this, Jaanus had no control over this, nor any idea this might happen.
I haven’t gone over to the Discourse forum to look for it, but I suspect this is another UI “improvement” that Discourse pushed because our forum is hosted and managed by them - without any notice to us, the lowly users!!
I’d be less upset if this didn’t take up valuable screen space which, when there are a few replies I haven’t yet read, causes me to have to take more time scrolling.
I’ve seen, but paid less attention to similar messages about “It’s been a long since …” and there might be other variations.
While there is a social aspect to this forum, it’s primary purpose is to ask for and receive help, and to exchange information. The social aspect is incidental (and, especially for the Corner Bar category and the “Welcome to our forum” thread - much appreciated by me!) I just want the purely social aspects to not intrude on the rest of my forum scanning experience.
