Malfunctioning profile section Microsoft Q&A

Recently the Profile section of the Microsoft Q&A was changed.

Previously the default webpage was displaying all Q&A activity.

After the change it displayed: Past 7 days

There were problems created with this change that were not yet reported.


These are the problems:

a) The top of the page displays: Past 7 days
b) The bottom of the page displays:
Your activity feed shows up to 30 interactions over the past 30 days.

It cannot be both 7 days and 30 days for the activity.


c) In order to view activity older than 7 days the member must now click on the left column: Q&A
After clicking on Q&A it displays


Q&A

1 2 3 4 ... 78 --->


This page counter works until page 78 is clicked.

When page 78 is clicked it malfunctions.


It displays:


Following tags
windows-10-general
windows-10-hardware-performance
Visit Q&A for all questions and feedback



So it never moved to page 78.

In addition the browser back arrow does not return to the prior webpage (77).



Moving one page at a time to 77 then clicking on 78 creates the same:


Following tags
windows-10-general
windows-10-hardware-performance
Visit Q&A for all questions and feedback



Any attempt to return to page 77 fails.

The browser back arrow does not allow a return to page 77.

A member must click on Q&A again and start all over with the page scrolling.


Only page 4 can be clicked and clicking 78 fails.

Once page 4 is clicked it will only display 5 ... 78

Once page 5 is clicked it will only display 6 ... 78

It's extremely inefficient to move one page at a time.



There is an option to click on the arrow: ---> however this also malfunctions.

The problem with the arrow clicks are the page height of the arrow.


The arrow height frequently moves higher and lower with the contents of each page.

Some of the webpages have more data and the arrow shifts down.

Some of the webpages have less data and the arrow shifts up.

So the member cannot rapidly click the arrow as it's height frequently shifts.




Please fix the profile webpage so that:

a) this is deleted: Your activity feed shows up to 30 interactions over the past 30 days.
(it cannot be both: "Past 7 days" on the top and "Your activity feed shows up to 30 interactions over the past 30 days." on the bottom.

b) the last displayed page number no longer malfunctions

c) the page back arrow is able to open the prior page that had been displayed by clicking the arrow --->
(for example if page 78 malfunctions you can return to page 77 without having to start on Q&A again)

d) the height of arrow ---> does not change with each webpage
(keep the ---> height the same so that it can be clicked many times to advance through the pages)
(no longer do members have to watch the height of the arrow ---> and keep track of where the mouse cursor is in relationship to the arrow --->)

In addition: On the Profile page -> Q&A -> Following Q&A threads section: It would be great and helpful to see the year in the date.
See all the threads I am following since "the beginning" doesn't make to much sense for me.
Instead it would be more helpful for me to see all "activities" (answered/commented) since the beginning in the Activities, instead the limit of last 7 or 30 days only.


Kind regards
