    Question Which Display Mode do you use/prefer?

    You have the ability to select which display mode you prefer (and you can make it stick by setting it in the User Control Panel). The three options are Linear, Threaded, and Hybrid which is a combination of linear and threaded.

    The default for new users is Linear. Give the others a try. Which do you use/prefer?

    NOTE: There is currently a bug that is being worked on in the threaded mode where in deep threads if you click on the "More replies below current level" link, it doesn't show you those replies. The simple fix is to change viewing mode...to any other mode.

    Linear. I'm gave the threaded view in other forums a chance and none could persuade me

    I haven't decided yet. I used to be a hardcore linear fan, but I'm liking the threaded view a lot too because it makes it easier for me to follow one line of conversation before switching to another. We'll see.

    I absolutely like the classic linear mode. In the threaded mode i have to click so much
    The hybrid mode sound interesting but I don't find it such useful because most people are using the "reply" button on the bottom so that there in my point of view isn't an advantage

    Voted linear. Tried threaded mode on one of the threads that had a lot of posts yesterday, but there was no logic between what was in the 'branches' and what in the mainstream because the posting is not done with a threaded mode in mind (like Monex says).

    Thus far, the Linear mode seems to work for me. I shall give the others a test drive later just to get a feel for them.

    Linear - seems to have better continuity for me.
