Question About New Board

    When you open a forum, you get a list of all the threads in that specific forum. One the left is the avatar picture of whoever started the thread, then the name of the thread.

    Some threads there is the avatar of whoever started the thread, then a smaller of my own avatar, kind of covering the corner of the OP avatar.


    It is threads I have posted in (I think) but not ALL threads I've posted in.

    Just curious....not complaining.

    I think it means you have a post in that thread. There may be delays is seeing your avatar next to the originator of a thread after you make a post.

    I think it's more than just you posted in that thread. If that was it, I would be the smaller picture in every single thread I post in, and that isn't how it's working. I think it might show the threads you last posted in when you were logged on last time? Not sure.

    Looking at this further, I think spidey is right. It does seem to be the the threads you've posted in.

    You guys seem to be catching this new board quickily. I better get to studying it more. Thanks for all your questions and help.:love:

    I have an alternative for those who had a group or two that they miss from the old board. Go to a thread (old group thread like Spidey did with God Bomb and I did with Football Cave) and then put that thread in your watched thread list. When it is in the watched thread list, you can access it quickly without having to search through the most recent postings. When you open the watched thread list, it will show only recently posted threads. You can click on the "there may be more to view" line to get a complete listing of your watched threads whether they have new posts or not.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Kind of a related question: when I post in a thread, then go back to "new posts", I don't see the post I made at the top of the list. Why is this? I might have to start using the watched thread thingamabob.

    Your own post doesn't show as a new post. The "watched threads" feature is very cool. I'm not sure if there was one on the old board. If there was I never noticed it.

    It's not new to you. You've already seen it.

    But it would show up as new to the rest of us.

    The conversation feature is very cool. You can have up to 5 involved. So far, I've only done a 2-way (anyone want to do a three-way with me :devil:)

    I was wondering if we could get smilies, or use smilies in the vm portion of the board.

    Starring it marks it as important to you. It's a little like favoriting or bookmarking.

    Can we have a different picture for a profile than the avatar?

    I'm sorry, but smilies won't work in profile posts (the new VM system).

    The system refreshes on a schedule, so some changes could take up to half an hour to appear.
