Default action after "Submit"

Post by ChrisGreaves »

After submitting a new post, a reply, or editing a previous post, I am given two clickable choices:
View your submitted message
Return to the forum last visited

I hate work. And I hate clicking when I don't have to.
Might we have a consensus on which of the two options is most likely to satisfy users as a default, and have the board do that?
My perspective: No matter how often I Preview, it is not until after a Submit that I find the last error, so for me, I always want to "View my submitted message".
If 95% of you feel the same way, it might make sense to make this a default action.

If you wait a couple of seconds it automatically returns to the thread that you posted in. I would be happy if it just went straight back to the thread without showing that message.

I agree! It's a painful few seconds. :sad: Yet these little quips seem so miniscule by comparison... :grin:

The admins discussed this issue when we were testing the software. I believe the outcome was that the software needs those few seconds to stabilise and so can't just transfer you directly to the new post.

That's OK, I can use those seconds to learn to speak another language. I am planning on re-learning French :grin:
C'est OK, je peux avoir l'habitude ces secondes d'apprendre à dire une autre langue. Je compte réapprendre le Français
