the collapse button for medals [in BoB]

Postby greenoaks on Tue Dec 21, 2010 12:36 am

what is the point of the collapse button that appears under the medals in our posts ?

it only collapses the individual post, not all posts or even all posts by that user

why is collapsed not the default with the expand button then showing beneath our usernames ?

If you have small avatars on (in BoB site options), it will be collapsed by default.
And I just kept the option because it was there already, don't use it that much actually.

Actually, it would be great to be able to only hide the medals, leave everything else there...

So you would still see the number of posts, and the join date?

That would seem to make sense. I'm surprised that wasn't the way it was set up in the first place.

Well, a quick inspection tells me that it is non-trivial to distinguish the elements displaying medals from the elements displaying the text: they are all of the class DD, while the username and rank insignia appear in a DT element. So the current collapse button just hides all the DD objects in that part of the page.

As far as a script goes, the lines beneath your name over there on the right are hard to tell apart, so hiding the lines with pictures of medals without hiding, say, the location line is not so easy to do.

Well, I guess the question is how to change it without removing the existing functionality that some users may prefer. Do you have any suggestions as to how it might look? Two buttons, "Collapse Medals" and "Collapse All"? Perhaps a third, "Collapse Text"?

The only thing I would like to collapse are the medals, those are the ones that take up space depending on the user, making posts to have a lot of blank space unnecessarily.

So maybe when you put Small Avatars On that's the only thing that would be collapsed, I don't see the need to collapse the rest. Or maybe the Small Avatars Option could have 3 possible settings: Normal, Small and Tiny.

As you say the reason to hide the text as well as the medals is because it's easier to code, as they come together.

The ones that take up space are the medals, specially with some users, make threads unnecessarily longer, the text doesn't. And the text is useful.
