I guess it would be useful to have a preview of a thread (first post only) when you mouseover a topic on forum display.
I agree, the forumdescriptions are better served at static text instead of this mouseover implementation. Because people need to see the forum descriptions at a glance in 1 go to decide which forum they need/want to use.No more mouseover ones please lol the home page one is annoying
I miss it now, because I really got used to it. Having said that: it's not essential and I could live without. Not as much as I could live without Internet Brands' vB4 (and very happily so), but still...I hated this in vB, was awful and hard to implement and slowed down loading a lot.

People were talking about having it display after a one-second timeout and such. How about loading the preview via AJAX on demand and not do all the extra processing ahead of time for all threads on the page?I don't think the cost/gain-relation on this would be worth it, tbh. Pulling all the data, then you need to process it properly in case there are images or other bbcode and stuff... that's pretty intensive. Don't know whether this could be cached properly.
As long as it doesn't use the quotes from users. Like on Kier's postings, it all starts with quotes, so it looks like Kier said the things that users got wrong. And since it's trimmed, it doesn't show Kier's reply.I guess it would be useful to have a preview of a thread (first post only) when you mouseover a topic on forum display.
