Could we please have a "flip this thread" button like on Mn.

Its very patronising kind of you to go for simplicity but really not necessary. smile

Hi there - we will be introducing flipping. We didn't omit it for simplicity, it's just that we haven't got around to it yet! Please bear with us.

And please, whilst we're asking for things, can we get rid of pages (or at least have the option to), and have bookmarks?

Crikey - that was a quick response. We're compiling a list of things we'd like to add to the Forums here on Gransnet, so we'll see if we can add that to it.

And can we have the "highlight our own posts" thingy, pretty please?

I know this is only my second post here, but I'm using a screen name I've never used before, anywhere. Until I get used to it, I could read something written by this Elspeth person and think 'what a load of twaddle'... confused.

Can I add a couple of requests please Catherine?

On MN, I prefer the 'no pages'

I also like:

The facility to change my username for sensitive subjects.

OP's posts highlighted.

And there's no [brew] emoticon here sad

Or [biscuit] or [bear] shock

hormonesnomore , thanks for your thoughts on this.

You can still use the 'no pages' option - just click 'Show all' at the top of any thread. It'll only come up on threads that are longer than one page. Tech is working on letting you change your preferences this permamently.

As Gransnet is a new community, we thought we'd take out [biscuit] and [bear] since they're so specific to Mumsnet.

At the moment, we've decided not to allow namechanging on Gransnet, because we want people to be able to build up relationships while the community is being established and to avoid confusion.

We'll take everyone's views into account, so if anyone else is really missing [brew], for example, do let us know!

hormonesnomore, I agree that members should have the option of anonymity if their OP is particularly sensitive.

Thanks for your response Josie. I see your point about building relationships on here but sometimes it is good to have that anonymity. I tend to stay with the same user name on Mumsnet but change when I feel I'm revealing too much personal information about myself - I don't always want to be identified in RL.

It would be nice to have the option - those who don't want to change can keep their NN and their Gransnet identity.
