and I still wait for a 'simple' replication of the links:
IT resource center forums > Your questions regarding ITRC Forums > general
- which is at the beginning of a thread -
at the end of a thread.
For a long thread (like this one for example) it would be very helpful.

What I really would like to see is more information in the forum thread overview page.
Now I can only see something like:
Threadname, original-poster, number of replies and DATE-of-last-reply.
This makes it kind of hard to spot when a thread that you might be interested in has recieved new posts. In many forum you can also see username of last poster and the time of this post.
That would make it much more easy to read the forums.

I assume that having the time of day may be all you need?
You do know you can get mail when someone replies?

>I assume that having the time of day may be all you need?
Yes, to be able to see the time of the last post would the most important.
Second to that would be in my opinion to also see the username of the last poster.
>You do know you can get mail when someone replies?
Yes, and that is a good feature, but perhaps mainly for threads that I have started myself or for threads where I have a special interest.
However, since there are lots of interesting other threads that I would like to casualy follow it would be nice to be able to easy spot if there has been new posts during the day.

I have done some more thinking and I hope to be more clear about what I belive is the problem with the thread display.
(Please see attached image.)
If I have read a certain thread the link does appear in the webbrowser as "visited", i.e. purple. If someone then post a new reply in the thread this does not change. The only way I could see that a new message have posted is if I have memorized the number of replies and can see that it is now higher.
Since that is kind of hard I instead have to click the interesting threads every now and then to check if any new replies have arrived.

I have suggested something alike multiple times (focussing on Posting TIME), and never seen it happen.
Nevertheless, I am glad you brought it up again. Let this entry be counted as a full "Me too" for your request!!!!!
Have one on me.

I thought IE works fine?
I use firefox and had this problem. I use a add-on to solve this issue: URL Link
(There are cases where a #xxx at the end doesn't work.)
I open 10-30 tabs when looking at the forum.

I have a suggestion to separate the wireless forum into two.
Now, under networking we have one forum for infrastructure questions regarding switches and similar (http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/familyh
Then there is the "communications, wireless" forum (http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/categor
I think it now is a strange mix which makes that forum part it a little hard to use. What I would like is to seperate the wireless forum into two:
One forum for wireless client problems, like laptop problems with drivers and similar.
One forum for wireless infrastrucure problems, with everything regarding AP, WES, RP, administration of WLANs and similar.

I just noticed, and wanted to point out for the benefit of others, that now with GOOGLE CHROME as browser you get a (English) spell checker with any text box, including replies here.

Data protector home page/download,
Data protector patch download page,
Support Matrices, etc....
Not only the "SSO web portal" link.
I know that there are a patch link, but this is the general patch download link not the DP specific patch download.

Perhaps a pop up saying you need to assign points for these answers?
I am trying to get a better hat, but its hard work!!!

That possibility DOES exist now!
(at least in the VMS forum) it is not uncommon to read things like:
- if you want to discuss detals that are unfit for an open forum like this contact me personally at
myname at mycomp dot mycountry
or something like that.
Or the other way around:
op dot mysite at myprovider dot com.
Email addresses in non-machine readable but readily decipherable form.
Have one on me.

I usually do stay in forums for technical support and sometimes for community relations, for example, the Ubuntu Community Forums.
