Yes, but what is a "board visit"?
Here's how it looks for me in the topic "Interpolation":
I am suggesting that this constraint be removed so that like before the switchover we systematically and automatically get notified of all contributions for which we have asked to be subscribed;
That is something that you adjust yourself at the time you elect to subscribe to a topic. You can then select "delayed" or "immediate" notification, among others. "Delayed" notification works in the way that you're complaining about, "immediate" is what I have selected, which seems to work exactly the way you wish.
furthermore, before the switchover the content of the contribution was included in the notification itself,
That was only true if you had selected that option.
which is very handy.
I agree, and I think it's very handy that we now get to see the content of the contribution that started a new topic.
I'm wondering whether there is enough interest amongst members to have these features restored - if possible and not too much of an imposition.
I should hope it's possible. The new software and server seems far snappier than the old, so the only limitation might be bandwidth usage issues.
I also miss seeing people's full names in their profiles. Well, for those of us who have provided it, anyway. Now there isn't anywhere to enter it, except in the "Location" field or as a bogus ID for various instant messaging systems.
Now if we could get that and
people would stop calling me "jani" instead of the name I sign with, I'd be very happy.
