When I post to a thread, after I click "Post message" I am always kicked out into the front page of the site with a "Thanks for posting" at the top. I assume this is the way the site is set up? Or is it because I'm on a Mac using Safari?
If it's deliberate, my feedback is that it's less than optimal for the user, as you then have to click back into whatever forum you were in before, and every page on the site takes a long time to load.
I understand, but I'm guessing most people who post here are already familiar with the other areas of the site. I know I always check the front page, and some of the other forums, when I visit. Maybe you could just add a line to the top of the forum where the person has just posted saying "Thanks for posting! Have you visited our other pages?" or something like that?
