I dug back about 10 pages and couldn't find the old one ...
I like: the ability to post code without the forum trying to parse it. Attachments. The camera icon.
The Mark All As Read function, which is a necessity now, with the unwieldiness of the new forums.
Hmm, I think we had that before. Keep trying
I like the pretty pages and the way they load nice and slow so you have time to meditate until they appear.
I like the fact that you have to re-log in all the time – it reinforces a sense of identity.
I like the fact that you can get logged out in the middle of a reply and can't recover what you wrote – it was probably rubbish any way.
I love the huuuge reply box and the way it messes with text inputting – who needs conventions?
I love the points system – it doesn't actually mean anything, but those red blobs are so exciting.
I love the exclusion of the NNTP interface – those Luddites weren't deserving of the Jive experience anyway.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Adobe, for giving us a rich new experience!
fascinating captain. sarcasm levels are spiking off my tricorder.
Improved Search feature (still doesn't beat dejanews.com - or google.com for Jive posts)
Found the above by typing "things i like" (no quotes) and waiting for the list to drop down.
Those are nice features. But be veeewwwwy caweful if you twy posting code via email.
I only recently found the drop-down list under the search box, because it's a bit slow arriving and I've usually hit Return or the magnifying glass before it has time to appear. With a bit of patience, it's not bad at all. The search function in the old forum was pretty dire.
