I don’t know how to clarify.
A listing now is
title avatar # duration
so… a picture, not a name. I do recognize a few avatars, like a pizza (mmm, pizza) but names go further.
There is no thing that says who responded last, or when.
I have yet to see a real date or time… just elapsed time in days or minutes. I prefer dates and times to a relative duration. Call me lazy, I just don’t like having to deal with “two days ago”. I don’t like “yesterday” or “today” in my file lists either. Dates. Times.
I have not seen the same little indicator that shows me thread I have written to.
Yes, perhaps all the same information is available but so far the work factor involved is burdensome. All the same information should be manifest in the thread list directly.
I do hope these are not inherent limitations from the Discourse software and the UI can be improved.
As for automatic draft saving, I am looking forward to seeing if that actually works and instills the same level of confidence that pushing a “save draft” button affords… I tend to prefer not having things be automatic. Automatic things bite me eventually.
And give me back the whole screen and a “preview” button. The real time right hand column is disconcerting and a waste of space.
