1. Talking to a wall?
I really need to see if I'm replying to someone who is online, or not.
Hovering over user name just to see what his/her status is....really annoying.
Surely there is a hook for it, which I installed on my board, but here it's not.
Why was it removed as a permanent feature is beyond me.

2. "Mark all as read" at the top of the board.
I made a simple edit on my board so it's there:

I got so used to it, that I'm automatically looking for this button at IPS forum, but no...
Scroll all the way down, open drop-up menu....Eureka...it's there...
Grrrrr....

Both of these are like 5 seconds of skinning, in fact some skinners are putting the online marker back in (Ehren's Splat does, anyway).

That's not my point.
Why on earth were they removed in the first place?

Don't forget avatar galleries and linking to an avatar via url. These are enough to prevent several big boards from upgrading that make use of these features.

I'm sure there are some other features which were removed for no reason whatsoever.

I'm happy that works for you, but having it that close to View New Content would not be very intuitive as the default placement. Near the Log Out button would work better, people could mark the board as read before they left for the day so they wouldn't have old threads they weren't interested in reading slapping them in the face when they returned.

1 was removed because whether the member is online or not doesn't affect your reply usually. If you want a live chat, use a shoutbox.

A forum isn't a chatroom. Who cares if there online or not.

A post is not instantaneous response and replies. It was clutter and not needed.

Button's location is not an issue. Lack of it is.

BTW...while we all were with 3.1.4 did you see any single topic saying...
"Hey guys, get rid of that On/Offline button clutter..."
I didn't.
Why was it removed then?

It was moved, not removed. If you really want to know if someone's online, hover over their name.

Did we ask for it to be moved?
Can you point me to one single topic which demands it?

Not every decision IPS makes is because there is a post on the forums asking for a change to be made.

If that logic were true wouldn't they remove the online box?

674 users are online (in the past 30 minutes)
list of usernames

Just sayin'. They work in conjunction.

So, if you know a feature is missing that you want in a newer version simply don't upgrade... It's not a hard concept, software changes as it progresses just because someone doesn't agree with that said progression doesn't make it bad or needing to be regressed..

Simply re-skin it in, and be done with it

I don't believe they need a reason, whether someone is online or not doesn't change how you reply to their post. Plus if you searched around you would see they said the exact same thing.

As far as I can tell this is "Company feedback" forum.
I quoted Michael's reply to ask him a question.
Do you work for IPS so you know?
