Anyone else see this on the sidebar, if not I'll take a pic.

Fatil1ty April 7 2009 7:29 PM EDT

ya NS is implementing the change of putting a direct link to your user page in the sidebar

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 7 2009 7:29 PM EDT

Makes sense. Should box it up, like the rest.

QBJohnnywas April 7 2009 7:29 PM EDT

Really? The Johnnywas Is Lazy Link? Cool!

Sickone April 7 2009 7:30 PM EDT

Yup, it's there...
As if you could forget your user name... unless you're multi, but what's the point ?

Sickone April 7 2009 7:31 PM EDT

Ah, link to user page... that... umm, yeah, makes some sense. Saves you two clicks, making it a one-click instead of three-clicks deal :)

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 7 2009 7:31 PM EDT

It should have YOUR NAME and Home beside it. Then free up some room for the top bar: Help!, Settings, Logout.

Fatil1ty April 7 2009 7:32 PM EDT

AHhuh!! precisely Sickone

Thank the gods!

kevlar April 7 2009 7:35 PM EDT

I love it.

QBJohnnywas April 7 2009 7:37 PM EDT

Now it says "CarnageBlender!"

Newlin [SeeD] April 7 2009 7:37 PM EDT

Now mine says nothing :)

Lol, now it says 'server error'

Sickone April 7 2009 7:38 PM EDT

CarnageBlender! setmy_user_id223522

...let's just let the guy work :P

Demigod April 7 2009 7:38 PM EDT

I have no idea what you guys are talking about... I just don't see it. Where exactly is the link?

QBJohnnywas April 7 2009 7:40 PM EDT

Hit refresh. You'll see it in the sideframe.

Come and join chat!

Demigod April 7 2009 7:42 PM EDT

Ooh la la. Thanks.

Fatil1ty April 7 2009 7:43 PM EDT

and it works!

QBJohnnywas April 7 2009 7:44 PM EDT

Nearly 4 years since I asked for this. I stopped asking when I had the Greasemonkey script going on, and then I forgot all about it to be honest. But this is a nice little change.

Thanks!!

Lord Bob April 7 2009 7:59 PM EDT

This is the single greatest feature addition in all of CB history.

QBJohnnywas April 7 2009 8:01 PM EDT

It is insanely pleasing. I've never understood why it wasn't there in the first place though.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 7 2009 8:28 PM EDT

Could I request that the line above and under my name is boxed like the rest of the sidebar?

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] April 7 2009 8:37 PM EDT

This seriously rocks.

lel April 7 2009 8:39 PM EDT

and the My user page is also now just above user and clan statistics on the home page

QBOddBird April 7 2009 8:42 PM EDT

I am so glad to have this.

Of course, this means fewer posts from me, as I'm in the habit of posting so that my name appears on the Home page where I can click it. *grins*

Lord Bob April 7 2009 9:21 PM EDT

"and the My user page is also now just above user and clan statistics on the home page"

How excellent.

Even though my comeback havent lasted for long, its greatly appreciated.

Godpanda April 8 2009 2:48 AM EDT

Thank you, NS. Really.

My only concern is that with my browser, I can't use the dropdown menus for Community/forums because I can't see the bottom options. If the area the link takes up could be reduced (Or livened up, actually. Bit bare, but small complaint) would be nice.


But I'm more than willing to have none of those things just for the link itself.

Thanks again.

wow that only took 4 years :)
