Just wondering.  Was the Topic Review link left out of MC forums for a reason, or as an oversight?  Personally, since I have a short term memory problem, being able to review the topic while in a response window would be handy.  Currently, if I want to review the topic, I have to either open the piece in a new tab, or open the response page in a new tab.

As an aside, I use Firefox as my primary and default browser.  It's very nifty keen.

I've wondered the same thing.

The MC forums are "private" forums, in that that one has to be specifically admitted. It may not seem like it, because the requirements are obviously very different, but MC is just as secure as our private Moderator's forums, and needs to be so because it uses the same security mechanisms.

The Topic Review feature, on the other hand, is NOT secure. It doesn't take the time necessary to check who you are, and therefore would represent a huge backdoor if it were allowed in our private forums.

Ah, ok. That does explain the lack of that feature there.  Thanks, Mr. Wizzerd!

I'll just keep using the tabs in Firefox then.

Topic review link? Where? I miss out on more cool features. I gotta figure this one out!
