View Full Version : Suggestion: Link to Lo-fi, AKA Archive version

October 27th, 2009, 2:37 AM
My suggestion is very simple, provide links in the forum view (In the thread listing) for the 'Archive' version of the thread, which is essentially text-only, and has no posting interface. This version not only loads faster but is more easily browsed, especially if you've got a poor connection. That way, you can quickly read a thread...and only bother to load up the full version if you're going to post or modify the thread (as in close it or something). :P

It'd be no more difficult than a bit of code which gets the thread id and adds it to http://www.pokecommunity.com/archive/index.php/t-<thread-id>.html link and insert a "Lo-fi" link under the thread title. (heck it could even be an icon next to the last post icon!)
