    I think there would be a chance of someone overlooking the form if it were aligned there.

    I think its more logical where it is now.

    I agree. It's good right where it is. Aren't items in a drop down usually aligned to the left?

    That will be changing soon in order to mirror the position of our inline moderation checkboxes.

    How did you get to that page? All I see is something that looks like user cp in vb3.8 with all sorts of options on the left hand side I don't normally use when reading threads.

    Same thing as what Grover posted. But un-cropped. ;)

    Thanks Nick!

    (I really don't see the need to see the options on the left when simply viewing Watched Threads)

    Thank you! (and offtopic... -since we can not reply anymore to 'Implemented Suggestions'-threads- also thank you very much for implementing alerts for you have been quoted: fantastic social functionality! :cool:)

    Overlooking? They already need to check some checkboxes and then scroll to the bottom to reach the 'With selected...'-dropdown. How can they overlook it and next to that: what is more logical then placing this dropdown right beneath the checkboxes instead of all the way to the left where it is crammed together with the page-navigation? UI functionality should be placed in context with each other.

    Why should they be? It serves no purpose there on the left, because there is no context/direct relation there with the checkboxes. But... ;) I am repeating myself and I don't want to repeat my behavior I demonstrated enthusiastically on vBulletin.com for 9 years... :oops:

    It's not essential, but since xenForo's UI/UX is such a pleasure already, I want to provide suggestions to keep it that way (if Mike&Kier agree it's an improvement, that is) and maybe improve it a little where possible. The UI/UX of xenForo is one of it's biggest selling points for me, and I hope a lot of other customers.

    Well, like Kier said he plans to move it so it's consistent with the moderator dropdown.

    *Flashback* ... not only is this what I'm used to, but it's what seems to make more sense:

    It's pretty weird to imagine the drop-down being aligned to the left in this instance.

    XenForo's inline moderation interface is unlike anything you have seen on a forum before. I am hoping to have a demonstration video ready tonight.

    LOL I don't think I've ever seen you post with that kind of word before.

    Don't get our hopes up too high.

    I'm afraid I may have to dash your hopes for tonight at least - I just uploaded a video demonstrating attachment uploading and placement to YouTube and it's horrible. It's turned my 1280x800 clip into a postage-stamp sized blur-fest and the visuals appear to be running about 3x too fast, so they don't correspond to the sound at all.

    Trying Vimeo now... fingers crossed.

    I already saw it when you posted it, but couldn't send the reply I wrote, cause the thread was removed ;). I get your point, but for me the video was fine:

    Not sure if you are okay with me posting it, but here is the YouTube link to the video:

    (edit: I removed it myself, because maybe it's not appropriate, since Kier removed the original thread for a reason)

    Awesome!
