In all topic areas, I can't count the # in all post but once I go to the the first and read the date it's 2 years old. that is before I take the time to help some one with my limited knowledge, but at least I try, Then I say well that was useless. I'm not trying to give anyone a hard time but to change the forum for "TECH" and still post old question just doesn't make sense to me. Lets fix the the answers first. Just IMO, I thank you and all the rest who do this, but other things need fixing First. It's the best forum on the internet for answers from members, and I'm proud to be one, and to be able to help someone. I have learned a ton on this forum. Just as a post today that we should start a new comers corner. I said always check the library first. If it not there or you don't understand please ask your question in a post. Thanks for asking me...

Don, OC and everyone else; it was great to find this thread! I just found this forum while I was trying to find the location of my bypass valve (another issue). Anyway, Don, can you tell me what your secured the circuit breakers to in the photo?

I've never owned a trailer and this summer we purchased a Wildcat; damn, there is a lot to learn! Thanks in advance. John

In my experience with websites, I've concluded that those of us "on the keyboards," are NOT the customers. The IT people are the customers. Ten minutes less to create something on the website by IT is more important than the fact that it may add 15 secs by thousands of users who have no control.

Not to badmouth the IT people, but they tend to do what makes their lives easier, not ours. You may recall early in the PC/Internet era that when you went on a site and you needed to take an action, they built a big button that said (essentially) PUSH HERE. It was easy to see and easy to use. Now that they've figured out hyperlinks, they just say, "If you want XYZ, go here." The word here is underlined and usually in a dark blue, but it's usually difficult to find it in the midst of a bunch of other words in black, especially since you've been conditioned to look for a "button." Now it's easier for them to create the hyperlink, but much harder for those of us on the keyboards to see it.

"New technology" is usually the "excuse," but I have my doubts. If it's not easier for the user, then something's wrong, but I see it over and over.

No one should be allowed to create a webpage or application with taking Human Factors 101 first. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen.

Many of us tend to use standard settings that comes with the computer rather than personalizing them. Why not select a better color for displaying hyperlinks? Just like adjusting the speed of the mouse we tend to go with what was provided.

If you open a specific area of the forum - say the Welcome Mat area you should see the newest threads at the top of the forum like this: Click image for larger version

Name:	frf_reverse.jpg
Views:	83
Size:	66.1 KB
ID:	66149

If you are seeing old threads first then you can switch the display order by clicking on the little arrow next to "last Post". This changes the viewing order for that forum.

I was/am unaware that the color of hyperlinks can be changed; on the 8 or 9 computers I've had both personally and at work, I've never seen another color. Even if possible, to me it's still a work-around. Human factor the page properly in the first place.

Thanks I do that then look at the first post 2 years old with no solution's from the op that helped him that is my point and my point only. The web Master is in charge and shouldn't post old post there, has to be a time that the moderators close it off or put in in archives. Thanks for your info and opinion. Clicking on that just means someone else had made the same mistake as me. I not blaming anybody. But to be told that we are moving forward because of new Tech. means nothing to me.

I haven't had any problems.

Change always upsets us but then in two weeks everyone gets used to it and moves on.
