little things about webmasterworld that really bug me

 4:14 pm on Nov 1, 2011 (gmt 0)

i like the 1990s look of webmasterworld, but everytime i see a few things i want to rip out all my hair and scream.
im talking about the twitter and google+1 button not being on the same line. there is loads of space down there, and you could easily have them looking nice on the same line, and it would make me so happy.
even now, i am looking at it right at this moment, and i can see that there is more than enough pixel space for the google+1 button to be next to the twitter button, but no, it has dropped down to the next line. why? why? why?
and while you are fixing that, if you can make it so 'open messages' doesn't wrap onto a separate line too, because having that short two word phrase wrap onto two lines is just crazy when the ones nextdoor to it are all on one line, and there is so much space.

i know in the grand scheme of things these are not important issues. but to some people - like people who iron their socks, for example, they are important.
if you fix those two things then your audience will probably shoot up

The rest of the folks are webmasterworld are drawing up a list of little things about you that bug webmasterworld.

Ironing your socks is first on the list.
Tendency to offer design suggestions is a close second though.

bugs me when I click on links that it doesn't open in a new browser - I know I can click to open as but I shouldn't have too

I hate not being able to have animated avatars. And sarcasm generally not conveying well via text format.

I hate the fact there is so much knowledge here that my little brain can't take it all in.

Noted about the lining up of the buttons.

I guess it's better to have clean socks, even if they are not ironed. ;)

But seriously...

I wish the pages included a "charset" declaration.

I wish I didn't have to choose between seeing a message I'm composing-- in its sort-of-real "Preview" form-- and seeing the message I'm replying to.

I wish old mail would fall off the bottom of the Inbox so people couldn't send me Sticky Mails winding up with the line "sorry, my mailbox is full".

I wish we had the "no idea" smiley or something like it >>

WW does need to be dragged into the present day. There is no real need for it to be so backward in its features. I see it as a kind of inverted snobbery.

I'm mostly happy with the features here. Bells and whistles and especially avatars and signatures detract from the informational content.

One thing I really really do want is the caption "Use example.com in this forum to turn off URL auto-linking" right above the posting box in the Apache forum, so that I don't have to type that out several times every day.
