Move the LTT Official forum group to below the "The Hub" group

Didn't Linus once say on a WAN show they didn't really care what we did on the forums regarding LTT? Seems like that doesn't really apply here with the huge WATCH OUR VIDEOS OR ELSE section. 

Probably the person to ask about servers, workstations, old Latitudes, or hard drives

I very quickly discovered the minimize functionality, which I didn't realize existed before.
This section is now minimized 90% of the time instead of glanced over half the time.

the thing is, its takes some time to minimize each time you reload. (even worse with weak devices and weak internet.)

Imo its just about getting used to new layout, nothing more. If you look at any other major forum, the official/housekeeping subforums are on top, before general discussion subs start.

 

Just because others are doing it doesn't mean that wee should do it or even that it's convenient / right.

If you log into a different device you have to minimize it again. If you like privacy if you log back in the same device you have to minimize again

I completely agree it seems like this is going from a place where fellow tech nerds meet and going to a place where linus tech tips watchers watch and discuss about linus tech tips and lmg.

for those who want to know

removing the code

// To remove LTT Official entirely
try {
  document.querySelector('[data-categoryid="99"]').remove()
}catch(ex){console.log(ex)}

will add it back

 

i'm incredibly disappointed in the mods behavior with this issue, the fact that you are acting like children saying 'iTs PeRfEcT yOu DoN'T kNoW wHaT yOu aRe tAlKiNg aBoTt!!!!!!!111' is down right not appropriate for people in your position.

i hope you grow up and apologize for your behavior, the way you acted is not cool.

As if forum by forum dying off wasn't bad enough.  Let's invent new ways to kill of the few that remain.  Of course, to the powers that be, this is simply about "press to test", because there are fewer and fewer alternatives, so the buffoonery can ramp up without negative repercussion.

I noticed this as well this weekend when I was on low reception 4G.

The entire page will load, and then it gets minimized. It feels like those websites that will load the article and then the ad, so that you accidentally click the ad when you try and click some other button. Kind of annoying. Not saying that that's the forum's intentions, but the end result is similar, if you are on a slow Internet connection.

If they want to bring the LTT Official part up more that's fine by me, but LTT employees should at least be somewhat present in that case. There are only a few new threads each day, most of them just being the video releases. Other than @ColinLTT I've almost never seen any LTT employee having any presence at all on the rest of the forum. Most of the OP's posting about new videos don't even react or answer to simple questions after posting. And it's not like the video threads typically devolve into thousands of comments so monitoring that should be possible. (linux challenge is an exception) But how it is now i'm not sure most of the employees even read the content posted on their threads.

This thread is absolutely rife with first world problems. 😄

 

Anyhow, the new layout is perfectly fine. I couldn't care less if it remained as is, or was returned to the old layout.

This change is a major annoyance, especially on mobile where even using the minimize feature takes a while to take effect since the connection is often poor on cellular.

 

If I didn't know any better I'd say that the change is a deliberate attempt at a dark pattern to force people to use parts of the website they didn't use of their own free will.

 

Whatever the motivation, the change is infuriating and imo should be reverted to the way it originally was.

 

@jakkuh_t Any chance this change will be reverted/reversed?

Decision comes from LMG. Forum staff has very little voice in it. You might want to address @jakkuh_t instead.

Now that some time has passed since the changes,I can say with 100% certainty that it affected negatively the Hub category,

There is a significant reduction in activity there,and this used to be the most active category in the forums.

Now it feels like the overall activity in the forums has been reduced.

Bad decisions have been made,no doubt about it.i wonder if @colonel_mortis can do something about it.

Again, decision was made by LMG. We can only make requests and they either agree or disagree. Its not like admin can in good faith undo changes by owners without their agreement on changes.

 

As for activity, I don't really read Tech News and Off Topic, so can't say for sure. General Discussion has been pretty much same. Maybe bit less of post dumping, but thats only good effect if it really is related.
