Option to turn of recommended posts.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The side bar or some other place is where recommended things go not at the top of other people's posts.

This isn’t what my screen looks like at all.  I get posts in pure chronological order.  Are you saying you have a setting that rearranges posts by number of likes?


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

That recommended post is within the thread you are reading. It is one of the replies to the thread...

It doesn't take up any more room than any other reply. You just need to scroll down a few lines to skip it.

 

Though perhaps a little [X] or [V] to hide or minimise the recommended post user side would be good for people who have already read the post.

 

I do think that too much room is taken up by showing how many reactions the post has, especially when viewed on mobile. How many likes the post has isn't really relevant either, and is already shown when viewing the full reply. I think that should be removed and use that space to display more of the original post and/or make the box smaller.

Recommended Posts are assigned by forum moderators, as you can see that particular post was recommended by @TVwazhere. They're replies within the thread that get pinned to the top of the thread. If you click it it will take you to the full reply within the thread.

 

The post is from this thread: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1179935-the-three-major-hdd-manufacturers-are-selling-slower-drives-without-telling-us/

The reply was Recommended as it was a response to the news by the Industry Affiliate for one of the HDD manufacturers. It was also being missed by a lot of people due to how many replies were in the thread, with 250+ replies and 10+ pages.

Ah.  That.  Yeah those do happen.  I don’t see em a lot.  Maybe 1 in 20 posts.  They usually make a lot of sense.

Then maybe "recommend reply" would be a better name, I assumed "post" to mean a literal post not a reply on the topic I'm reading. 

 

Makes more sense now I know it's a reply.

"Post" and "reply" mean same thing. Just as "thread" and "topic". Recommended topics are already on sidepanel, though names "Featured Topic".
