Site Forums needs a "General" Section

Feature Requests

Found 5 posts - Go to Last Post


Sometimes, I just want to discuss a feature of the site, or a change, or something, but not a bug and not a request.

Like today, the bubble under the "Unread posts" icon. Not sure how recently it was added, but, I actually noticed it today. I wanted to talk about that, because it is hard for me to to read white font on a yellow background (actually, it probably is hard to read for many people). But, I thought talking about it in general would be nice before claiming it to be an issue, or a bug, or submit a feature request.

But, the site doesn't have a general site forum.

So, could we maybe, please, get a forum specifically to talk about the site?

THANKS!

IE on W8 Phone = icon is white on white so invisible, but I know where it is, when I touch it it's white on black for a brief second
IE on Surface - white on black

So I only see one problem, no yellow backgrounds anywhere.

Actually, I noticed when I got home that my personal PC does not have it. So, when I go back to the office tomorrow I might investigate what is loading differently there.

And nope, not the reveal on hover. On my work Firefox (not sure which version, could be anything between 24 and 31), the "Word Bubble" that becomes white has a yellow orb on the lower left quadrant of it, indicating the number of unread posts. Since I had never noticed it before (I have my personal laptop at the office, and usually use it over a non-corporate internet connection to do personal stuff), I thought it was a new... feature? option? thing?

But, now that I am home, everything looks normal. So, not sure what is up at the office. (And I am a HEAVY no-script, ad block, hell block anything, user on that machine, so, it could totally be me jacking the way the site loads, and not realizing it based on what I have locked down.)

I WILL try to take a screen shot of it, though.
Oh, and Kaens, when I got the Lumia Cyan update on my 1520, GTN now loads like this:



So, MS or Nokia or someone fixed it, because before that, I had the exact same issue as you.
