View Full Version : Mouse over preview?

12-04-2003, 06:00 PM
Don't know if this has alrady been suggested. But it'd be cool if there could be a small preview when you mouse over the thread title...

So for example when you'r ein the marketplace you can mouse over the thread title and have a 20 word preview or whatever before you actually click on the thread ittle to open the thread.

I just think it'd be nice to know more about the thread than the title says before opening. Probably just lazy on my part.

good Idea!

This would be cool as well

That's an awesome idea...there are a few other forums that do this and it is a huge help and time saver!

thats a sweet idea man!!
but i am not sure if its gonna be hard for the mods to do it or not!
because its sounds pretty complicated to me!!:dunno:

might suck for people with slower comps or internet tho.

I have slow internet and am on sites that have that. It's no problem.

Also, a previously participated thread link would be nice.

With the # of new threads to keep up with, its nice to be able to glance a thread without opening it

Especially true for posters who dont like putting much info in thread titles.

eg. "I need help" and "what the *&%%" types

wow 5 year bump
i'm sure if after 5 years it hasn't been implemented it isn't going to be

think squeaky wheel ....

I agree, I find that feature to be really handy on other forums.

I didn't even notice the date on the 1st post haha.
But yeah, that would be a really sweet addition, so much easier
to filter out the things you have interest in reading and the ones you don't.

i kinda agree too, would probably reduce bandwidth use too right?, not as many people would click on threads they arent interested in after reading the start of it

:thumbsup: I love that feature on some other forums.

08-24-2008, 10:11 PM
that feature would be a massive hit on the database, and not worth adding more servers/power just for that.

ah thanks... . I searched for "mouse over" ... not "hover"

either way, its too bad.... I've seen VB3 on big forums (privately owned) and its worked fine.
