One of my least favorite things about forums is the stupid "message posted, redirecting to your post, click here or click here" or whatever the message is. I can get rid of it on here, and almost did, but thought I'd better see what the general opinion is first. With it removed it would just go straight to your post after you click "Submit".

Can you make the redirect shorter? It's good to know that your message got submitted, but... I can see how it's annoying.

This is coming from someone who doesn't know much about this technology goop, so take it with a grain of salt. Can you have the redirect page, but then automatically go back to the post? That way you know that the message got submitted, but you don't have to click anything.

I agree on the shorter redirect page. However, if it cannot be done, I'd vote to get rid of it altogether.

I'd vote to get rid of it (I did, actually), but I believe that the redirect is there so that the database has time to update before displaying the thread again. That is, if you just link directly to the thread, it may link before your message gets submitted. This is just speculation, but definitely worth testing before you decide to get rid of the redirect altogether.

i was going to suggest that someone should add the "Swing Utah Forum Index -> Tech Support and Testing" style links down at the bottom of the page so you don't have to scroll all the way to the top of a long page to get back to the index or the forum you were in... then i scrolled down there to see if there was any room to put it. and saw that it was already there Confused
