I just wanted to mention that I think you did a great job setting up these boards.
Things I like:

- The first post pop-up when the cursor is over a thread title.

- The easy-access to the "New Posts" search and the way it presents truly new posts as well as posts I didn't read last time.

- The easy-access to the "Mark Forums Read" button.

- The automatic subscription to started threads.

I'm on a few different boards for various things and although they all use the same vBulletin software it's clear that there are many different ways to configure things and I think you did a great job in configuring this site.

Thanks,


Mitch

I hate to seem cynical Atio but getting to know the web and web culture will help as your first step.

Your first ever post to a forum being an off topic request for help the day you created the account would indicate you have some work ahead of you.

Don't expect to make any profit with a forum (if any) for a while... like several years. Otherwise, it really depends on what you are knowledgeable with or willing to learn. There are lots of opportunities out there on the web, but it takes an awful lot of time and energy to make it work. It takes a long time to get your sites to where people can see them... nothing you can do except prepare them and wait. It's a challenge to say the least.

Wow, some of these I didn’t even know about! How do the second and third items work?

Just click on the New Posts link in the navbar up top...




It will list all new posts since your last visit... and that you have not viewed.

Generally what I do is click on the "New Posts" link every time I visit the forum. I scroll down through the various posts and visit the ones I'm interested in or have time for. After each viewing/post, I click on the browsers Back button to go back to the New Posts listing. After I'm done visiting the ones I want to visit, I'll then click on the New Posts link again, in case someone else has posted since I first started. If I happen to get through all that I want to view and/or post in, and there are no more I care to view, I then click on the "Mark Forums Read" link... which will clear any leftovers from the New Posts listing. Next time I visit, I click the New Posts link and all I see are new posts since my last visit.

If you visit everyday, this is the easiest method to use right now... although there are times when there will be a couple of pages of new posts to sift through. There will come a point in time where it won't be feasible to use this... when we start seeing several hundred posts per day. It could still be used, but a challenge to follow and keep up with any way you look at it.

Yeah, try the "New Posts" thing on AVS. It moves pretty dang fast.

Sonnie, I have a question -- can we put the "View First Unread" in the screen that I get when I hit "New Posts"? You know, sometimes when a thread has many pages (like The SWAMP), you get the pages to click on like "1 2 3 4... Last Post". Somewhere in that area, can you put a "View First Unread"? Then I don't have to go into the thread and scroll down to hit "View First Unread". And then go "back" twice.

Just a suggestion. And, yeah, great job on the site. I'm sure it must take a lot of effort, and I really do personally appreciate it.

Thanks!

Otto... I didn't realize it, but the little down arrow icon to the left of the thread title is the "first unread post" link.



Not sure if it would be feasible to move it really... seems like it's okay where it is. Either way, I don't think I've ever paid it any attention. Learn something new almost everyday.

Keep in mind that if you "Mark Forums Read", you won't see this in the forum thread listings. Of course in the New Posts you would see any threads either.

Sonnie,

Thanks! You're right -- learn something new everyday. I never really noticed that little thing there. As far as I'm concerned, it's fine where it is and does exactly what I need it to do.
