Could Cox add an option to Expand All replies within a post?
If I participate in a post and get a notification of a new (unread) reply in said post; clicking the notification icon will go to the new reply but...because I have limited mental capacity...I don't remember the context of a reply to have prompted a response. (I hope this makes sense.)
There are links (Load Next) to "locally" or "relatively" expand the conversation around the new reply but these links are sometimes above or below the new reply and I easily lose my place within the post.
Along with the 3 sort-options at the top of each post (Oldest, Votes, Newest), could Cox add another option to Expand All? This way, with my goldfish-like memory, I could easily scroll upward or downward and not lose my train-of-thought.
I fully realize that none of the features we request here will ever be implemented, but I have another fantasy request.
I'd like to have some type of Forum instructions box displayed somewhere on this page for new users for a TBD number of days or until they have a TBD number of Forum points. It should instruct new users to provide as much information as they can about their issue. For example, a user with a TV issue should specify their type of cable box (Contour 1, Contour 2, Wireless 4K Contour Stream Player, mini-box, other), their DVR service, and whether the cable box has recently been replaced. They should also provide a detailed description of their issue including such things as when it happens, how often it happens, if it happens on multiple TVs, did they do anything immediately before it happened, etc. You get the idea. Instructions might be customized for each Forum. Of course that would require the new user to post in the correct Forum.
What new users typically post is something like: "My DVR doesn't work. Any ideas"? (That may be an exaggeration, but not much). Yeah, I have an idea. Give us some information so we can help you.
I would like this in the Internet Forum too. A sticky that shows what to report before claiming slow speeds. What model modem and router, signal levels, tracert, Pingplotter, etc.
there are stickies on every forum i go to, number of posts to sell item, what must be included in the add, how to post pics, how to contact another member, how to get email notifications to subscribed posts, ad nauseum!!
nobody reads "how to" posts!!
