Having to click the menu each time you want to access Your/New posts can get a little.. anoying.
Having everything be hover triggered would be super annoying, having things appear/disappear constantly as you move around the screen. The current behavior is much more user friendly. Particularly since those drop-downs are not something you need to make constant use of while using the forum. Even facebook (which seems to be referenced to a lot here in terms of UI talk) requires clicks to show their drop down menus.
VSE, They dont appear/disappear on any fast mouse-over, but only if you leave your mouse in a specific place for about a full second..
Please tell me.. were you ever bugged by the dropdown menus that the phpbb.com forums have? I sincerely do not think you did.
I am only talking about having the on mouse-over on the Quick links. Not on everything. But the "everything" would only be the Notifications and user info. And i dont see what would be wrong to have it added on them.
The links you are talking on fb are the Friends requests, Messages and ActivityNotifs. You only need to check these rarely.
In my opinion the QL are made use of constantly and are like the access points of the forums.
If you want to check both your posts and new posts, you have to click to see the menu twice.
People simply got used to have all these links at their disposal without doing anything else.
As it was said, this can be a user preference, and in my opinion it should be set by default. Thats for the devs to decide, but even so, there should be an option to tick/chose this from the UCP.
Everyone that posted here only seems to complain that.. What if the feature gets badly implemented... It wont. Why would it. if it does, we can complain afterwards. I cant understand this argument.
