So rather than debate my counter, you change your original post, based upon comments in my reply, and don't mark what you changed, to try and strengthen your point?

Doesn't work that way.

And you're still trying to back up your point by simply repeating the same thing over again, rather than have some basis in fact.

For ease of use, I'll post the part you added here:

It's alot more efficient to have all the posts all together right under one another instead of having to click on every single individual post. It's all about business. If majority customers preferred "Threaded", then software developers never would had changed it to "Flat". They realized that it was much more preferred, more efficient, neater, more organized, etc. But most of all, it's what the customer wanted. They are out to make money. You are completely out of your mind if you think most people prefer "Threaded" rather than "Flat". Forums never would have changed from "Threaded" to "Flat" if that was the case. That is common sense. Maybe MAMEWorld members might prefer "Threaded", but I wasn't talking about just MAMEWorld members.





You're still assuming flat mode is to make customers happy. You're right in that they are out to make money. But all the "facts" you put up above (more efficient, neater, more organized, etc., etc.,) were posted in that thread that I linked to by a programmer of the phpbb software. That is how he likes it, so that's how he programmed it. You neglected the info about how he said that threaded mode was more complicated to implement (I'm not going to bother, as it's time for bed).

Have a good night. MAME on!



RELAX and just have fun. Remember, it's all about the games.
