    I was curious about how members of ChefTalk view our forums? What I mean by this is when you are looking at a discussion there is an option on the top right under "Display Modes" that gives you three choices:
    1. Linear
    2. Hybrid
    3. Threaded

    I guess what I've got is the default. I never thought about it, because whatever it is, it works fine for me! :D

    Same for me. I never noticed the "display mode" options before. Nicko, could you please explain what they are and what they do?

    Mine is set to "Linear" but I've never changed it; therefore, it's the default setting for me, since I never selected another view.

    I have played with those buttons before. I kept linear. When and how will it go to default since it's not an option?

    Are the people voting default, linear? or never chose.

    Okay now that I looked into it, I can say definitely the default mode. The others are interesting but after 5 years or so, I guess I'm just hooked on default. "It's nobodys default but mine".... la la la la......

    I always prefer the Linear mode, which many forums use. I really don't like the threaded mode as it requires you to keep clicking. I like to see it all, at once, that way I can go back easily to see what someone said earlier.

    I'm currently using the hybrid view, though only since I saw this thread ^_^ I like it, it reminds me of old newsgroups, with the conveinence of the linear layout *note to self: quick reply makes the threaded bit look odd if you just find a quick reply button n click it*

    Linear. But, like many of the above posters, I didn't know I had a choice.

    I never knew I had any choice in the matter. I just take it as it is given to me. Its worked so far. I voted for default. Guess I liked the name of the candidate.
