I'd shoot you some karma Terry, but it tells me I gotta spread it around!

Personally I like the different areas and threads. I usually don't do the word games and puzzles, but I like to read them and get a chuckle from them. I've even managed to get a few good one liners I can use elsewhere.

Of course not everyone likes everything, and if you are not interested, then go on to the next one. There are to many people making decisions for us, I for one would like to keep a place where I feel welcome and not have to be dictated as to what I can and cannot read.

I am not fussing at you guys or being snotty, I just feel we can all get along like we have in the past, and if a thread does not interest you, don't read it.
That's what I do.

Peace
Marie

Good arguments!

There are some very good Arguments here for this site to become a general purpose, Airstream related, "SOCIAL FEEL GOOD PLATFORM", .....is that what you want,....... then speak up! If you do not want that, then you should speak up also! Bill

This forum serves thousands of streamers who each have his/her own purpose for joining. Enjoy what is so freely offered us ~G
Even better (as Steph suggested) is to click on "New Posts" it brings up all the new posts since your own last visit ~ after a week long absence there may be 2-300!

BTW...did you knoiw you can show up to 100 posts on a page by doing this: Go into your UserCP > click on "Edit Options" under Settings & Options >Scroll down to "Number of Posts to Show per Page" > Choose your preference (10, 25, 50, 100) from the drop down menu.

You can also set oldest post on top or newest post on top.

There is also a setting that you can default your subscription notices to threads you have posted in. This would set it to notify you when someone posts in the threads YOU post in and not the ones you don't...

Maybe one of these features would meet your needs better than just checking the portal page for the last 25 "new" posts.

There is another option, maybe kind of drastic. You can choose a user that, for example, seems to post only in the meaningless off topic threads. You can select that user, and select "ignore all posts by this user", and you will never see another post that person makes. IIRC, a thread that person posted to would also not show up in your "top 25" on the portal page.
This may have changed slightly since the last upgrades, but I used this feature extensively a while back, when we had some problem users. It kept my blood pressure down to a manageable level most of the time.

Ya know, this is more than just a tech site, and I expect all of us reading this post look for more than technical input. It is a community...and keeps me out of trouble while my A.S. is laid up Guess I should not abreviate as one slip of the keys and I reckon that would not be good. Seriously though Kudos to Andy and pals for keeping a very clean and interesting site!!! Guess I should get back to cleaning the tint off my windows

I looked back over the last year, and noticed that since we have had those pointless threads running, we have had to make fewermoderator actions involving forums members. My thought is the people that may have caused problems were busy posting in the pointless threads, rather than running amuck causing strife and conflict with other members. Idle hands are the Devil's tools.

Well I been trying to figure out how to put myself on my ignore list, Is that possible? I never seem to contribute anything worthy to this forum so rather than clutter things up I'll just Airstream into the sunset, maybe

Shari, that is the delima here, who has the time to read through maybe 300 new posts, on every subject under the sun, to see if something is applicable or of interest to you? The PORTAL page groups NEW post by SUBJECT. It's the only place on this site that groups NEW posts by subject!....at least that I am aware of. That's why each of those 25 slots are very valuable and they should be closely monitored for relevance to the purpose of this site. Bill

WRONG!!!!

Seems to me that a guy that goes to bat for fewllow A/Sers . . . stands up for the men and women my country sends around the world to do their bidding (among which are two naval officers with my name) . . . invites newbies with a warm welcome . . . and goes behind the scenes to ease other's path is due applause. I'm not kidding when I say, "DG 4 PREZ."

Without having read the entire thread - just the start and ending - I submit another option. Some believe that this may be a way to run up posting numbers - SOooooo, maybe the MODS can get together and select "useless threads" (is there really such a thing????) and deactivate the posting counter for that thread to the posters account. Just an idea, I have posted to some of those threads - have to admit, 0300 - at sea - 12-16 foot seas, 30-40 knot winds, and tuna salad for dinner - it has been fun reading the threads and posting , keeps my mind off where I am.

Yeah but cmon, who really cares how anyone gets their rivets? For Pete's sake, this site is for info. for a luxury pastime, and a nice caring community has come out of it. Why is that not a good thing?

Oh trust me - I totally agree, just trying to offer up a peaceful option to quell any forum rebuke for posting a funny and not an aluminum welding technique or a 1953 comode rebuild time series photo spread.
