Post preview pop-ups and who is online

Postby Welly » Fri Apr 30, 2010 10:46 am

Hello everybody :cheesy:

On other car forums I've seen there's often a facility where you can hover one's mouse over a topic title and read the first few lines in a pop-up box. I think this is good but could it be done here?

Also you know when reading a fred, at the bottom of the screen it tells you "who is on line" or something but does that mean whoever's name is shown is reading the same topic as you or just the same forum section? (always wondered this).

Hi.

Those things NEVER stay up long enough for me to read them :frown: Then I have to sod around with the mouse to get them to reappear and it ends up being far far quicker just to click the link and read the damn thing :frown: :frown:

"Users browsing this forum", I think that speaks for itself really :P

Move away from the edit Puggy button I could be pedantic here and say there's no such word as "forums".

Ok, a brief experiment later, by "forum" it means the sub-headings like "engine and mechanical talk". I always just assumed it meant that but now I know for sure.

I'm too tired to tell if stevie's taking the piss now :?

What I meant was; if you look down the bottom of the page it says "who is browsing this forum" it doesn't say "Topic" so I thought it meant that someone else was also looking through "Engine and Mechanical Talk" for example and not necessarily looking at the very same Topic as you.

forum

(ˈfɔərəm)

[a. L. forum.]

1.1 Rom. Ant. The public place or market-place of a city. In ancient Rome the place of assembly for judicial and other public business.

   1460 J. Capgrave Chron. 29 Thoo places in which juges herd causes he [Foroneus] cleped hem aftir his name, ‘forum’, that is to say, ‘a hopen place’, or ‘a market’.    1601 Holland Pliny II. 117 The said Scipioes statue erected in the Forum or publick hall.    1647 R. Stapylton Juvenal 61 The city of Rome had four great forums or piazzas.    1781 Gibbon Decl. & F. II. 15 The principal Forum; which appears to have been of a circular, or rather elliptical form.    1838 Arnold Hist. Rome I. 38 He [Tarquinius] made a forum or market place and divided out the ground around it for shops and stalls, and made a covered walk around it.

b.1.b as the place of public discussion; hence fig.

   1735 Thomson Liberty i. 160 Foes in the forum in the field were friends.    1818 Byron Ch. Har. iv. cxiv. 1025 Rienzi‥The forum's champion, and the people's chief.    1831 Carlyle Sart. Res. (1858) 8 To descend‥into the angry noisy Forum, with an Argument that cannot but exasperate and divide.

2.2 A court, tribunal. law of the forum: the legal rules of a particular court or jurisdiction.

   1848 Wharton Law Lex., Forum, the court to the jurisdiction of which a party is liable.    1857 Parsons Contracts II. ii. ii. §6 (ed. 2) 103 Limitation and prescription are applied only according to the law of the forum.    1858 Ld. St. Leonards Handy-bk. Prop. Law ii. 4 As the law of property is now administered in the different forums‥it exhibits a splendid‥code of jurisprudence.

b.2.b transf. and fig. (Cf. med.L. in foro interno, in foro conscientiæ).

   1690 Case Univ. Oxford 48 A right to be impleaded in their own Forum only.    1756 Burke Subl. & B. v. v, Of this, at first view, every man, in his own forum, ought to judge without appeal.    1852 Gladstone Glean. (1879) IV. xiv. 151 In every country of Europe, except one, when excusable collision arises between the civil and the religious power it must be in the external forum.    1874 Morley Compromise (1886) 147 It is truth that in the forum of conscience claims an undivided allegiance.

3.3 attrib., as forum-area, forum-orator.

   1812 Southey in Q. Rev. VIII. 347 A forum orator some years ago published a tour.    1893 Archæologia LIII. 544 The forum area was trenched but not excavated.


______________________________


Additions 1993

Add: 3.3 forum shopping Law (orig. U.S.), the practice by a plaintiff of deliberately seeking out the court felt likely to determine most favourably in a particular case; also forum-shop v. intr. (pres. pple. in quot.).

   1954 Federal Suppl. (U.S.) CXVIII. 235/2 He may have been *forum-shopping, but the law has not, particularly in the case of seamen and others in his category, frowned upon this.    1955 U.C.L.A. Law Rev. III. 104 Under the old doctrine a primary consideration was the prevention of a plaintiff's ‘forum shopping’.    1970 Internat. & Compar. Law Q. XIX. i. 29 Their Lordships were‥alive to the evils of ‘forum shopping’ that Machado v. Fontes has in the past been accused of encouraging.    1983 Times 22 Jan. 3/3 Lord Hailsham's view is that the present system with its ‘forum shopping and scales of costs’ in different courts is ‘hardly an advertisement for a system of justice’.

Draft partial entry June 2003

▸ Computing. A discussion group which is accessible online, as through a mailing list, a bulletin board system, a newsgroup, or the World Wide Web, esp. one dedicated to the exchange of information and opinions on a particular topic.
   In early use, not always distinguished from the general sense of ‘a place of public discussion’ (see 1b).

   1971 E. Harslem & J. F. Heafner Request for Comments (Network Working Group) (Electronic text) No. 131. 3 We have been proponents of the collective NWG [= Network Working Group] as a forum to raise issues and as a general information transfer mechanism of what sites are doing and thinking.    1984 InfoWorld (Nexis) 18 June 34 A forum or special-interest group (SIG) is a subset of a national network and functions much like a BBS.    1990 Computer Buyer's Guide & Handbk. 8 iii. 34/1 Most people think of BBSs as crude hacker forums where computer nerds trade tips on how to pirate software or break into the Pentagon's computers.    1997 Daily Tel. (Electronic ed.) 1 Nov. In this forum, you can follow or join in conversations as they happen.    2000 Edupage (Electronic text) 25 Aug.
