How do you read/keep up with posts here on MNL?

Sun Mar 10, 2013 1:36 am

Since I can't post a poll... :roll: I guess people just have to reply.

How do you all read/keep up posts on this forum? Which of these do you do?

- Click View unanswered posts
- Click View active topics
- Click View new posts
- Click View your posts
- Drill down thru all of the areas, looking for new posts
- Drill down only thru selected/favorite/interesting areas, looking for new posts
- Something else

Personally, I most of the time just click View active topics and View your posts. I find it too easy to miss stuff when drilling down thru various due to the random stickies in some of them. So, I rarely do that anymore.

I'd imagine that some people never/hardly return (even to their own posts/threads) or have difficulty keeping up because they haven't discovered some of the links/methods or how they behave.

View Active Topics, and click the icon at the left of the title which
takes me directly to the next unread post in that thread.

CAUTION, read all the way to the bottom of a page, because
once you access a page, the forum system assumes that
you have read all the posts on that page, unless new posts
are added later to that page.

Also, there are so many posts, that I have to be very selective
about which ones to read.

Interesting, did not know about the bolded part and thus not the latter either.
