There are the settings noted above you can ask the admin to toggle to see if you/they’d prefer the opposite behaviour, though I tried it myself once to test it out and it is surprisingly noisy for not much extra info. I think once people know what’s happening it does make a lot of sense to ‘clean the screen’ and simplify what’s shown, but having the admin options is great if people want to try what including them would look like.
Yeah, I did see those topics. Obviously, we are not the only people who did not expect this behaviour. Probably many more who haven’t filed “bug” reports like I did. Though I glad to see that this has been addressed with a config option…maybe the Justin devs don’t know about it.
I was worried that all hell might break loose if this were turned on. As a former dev, I’ve certainly seen situations where changing some seemingly innocuous setting causes a complete rebuilding of the message database, massive increases in storage requirements, and similar carnage.
I was reassured in my other thread that this would not happen. Was that your experience as well?
