Destee,,

If possible, maybe this thread could be placed on automatic rotation. From time to time, there are threads that automatically post and rotate without a member posting to them. I'm not sure how that happens, but I have noticed it. Just a thought...to the enormous benefit that would serve to newcomers and oldtimers:)



Brother Clyde ... could you show me what you mean, a thread that automatically posts / rotates?

I'm not aware of us having that functionality. Right now, a post is required, to move a thread up.

:heart:

ahhhh ... perhaps you are talking about when a thread, that contains a poll, is sent back to the top.

Yes, that does happen, without a post ... but it's because someone voted ... which brought it back to the top.

It didn't just happen automatically ... it was prompted by a Member's action.

Yes Destee, that is correct. In my quick research, they were Poll threads that kept coming up every so often. Thanks for solving that riddle:)

Just Noticed

you've been busy!! Good Stuff; THNX!!

one of the new features: no more "Member Since"? (or was it "Join Date"?) anyway; that was a useful bit in that it gives a feel for how much "weight" to give to a Member's comments on those occasions when one wants/needs to consider whether or not that comment is coming from someone that has been around for a while or whether it is a "newbie" not fully up on the History of the House that an "OldHat" would know about.

i just happened to notice that when somebody said something about how long they've been here and my eyes just gravitated up to check their join date.

Brother anAfrican ... the member since, or join date, has been the way it is for a long time, though you're right, it useta be different.

You can find the old format on a Member's profile page, indicating their longevity with the actual day / date they registered, rather than the image shown on posts.

Love You!

How many posts can be viewed prior to having to sign in:?:
I had a copy of the message box yet lost it after posting to another thread first.:rain:

Thanks in advance!

M.E.
:hearts2:
Sister True ... if no mistake, 5 pages can be viewed if one is not logged in and/or registered.

Ohhhh Sister ... while I have your attention, and you're not in the chat room having to leave out to do this ... :) ... please

1. delete your cache and cookies, and

2. reset the chat room

So the next time that you do come in, hopefully everything will work for you.

Love You!

Sister Destee how have you been? It's been a while but I'm glad to be back. I see many changes so I'll browse around to get my feel of things again
