#4490 - 04/21/0206:11 AMRe: How can you tell a new post from an old one?
Your old home has changed, it ain't there anymore! Well it is still there, but it isn't what it used to be. Leveled by bulldozers, get over it AROSS. Go there, check it out, see how it has changed. Then you will be back here. I go back and forth, but since most of us are here, I spend more time here than there. You have a problem with change or something? Change is good sometimes, even if it is disorienting or whatever you want to call it.<br><br>
I am confused too. I have problems with the relative posts changing position.<br>Jeez, here we are, new to the forum and telling them how to set it up. I bet both Stan and Misha will read the confusion and make some minor alterations while maintaining their independence. The old hands in this forum have been VERY accomodating and I appreciate it. Says a lot about the classy oldsters here.<br>The real quality of this forum will be up to the posters and their sincerety. I am glad to be here and will continue to check MC. There are still lots of good folks over there. <br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by sross on 04/21/02 09:33 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I believe this is one of the things Stan is looking into. I don't want to change how they have it set up by default, but I would like the option to disable that feature so that the newest threads are always at the top. That would suit my browsing style better. I also feel that as threads sink you aren't going to get the number of responses you normally would get to a new thread if people can't find it or don't see it. I have however figured out the thing about how to distinguish new posts as they appear. They are orange for me now too after I cleared my cache, logged out and relaunched my browser. At least that now makes it easier to find new posts.<br><br>
I'm having a very difficult time with this new forum (I don't like the threads move up and down. I realize that it moves new posts to the top automatically, but you can get the same thing by clicking the "Past 24 Hours" link at the top of the forum page. I would like the option to run that feature off. I want the posts listed in the order they were posted, not by the oder of their popularity (# of responses).<br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

to have an opportunity to check out this feature more fully. The one sending old posts to the top of the heap when new posts are added. It is good sometimes and other times I have a difficult time finding something I'm looking for specifically.<br><br>Kate<br><br>
