OK, the new posts link has been changed to only show the posts outside of OT... You want OT posts, go to OT and find them yourself. This is an effort to keep threads from fading away in the other sections of the board that might see less traffic during the day. This suggestion was passed to me via PM (because you all know I'm not good enough to come up with this on my own :lol:).

Everyone should know by now I'm a strong supported of OT and that it builds a sense of community for us, but I agree some threads outside of OT go unnoticed and hopefully this helps.

I don't use the "New Posts" button but I know a lot of folks do and this could have a lot to do with posts outside OT being "neglected."

Great idea, and I'm happy to see this implemented.

yeah, I jumped on it as soon as it was suggested. I never used that button before on other forums, but have learned to use it here (because we're small). Plus not only was it recomended, I even got a link to the how to on vB's board. :)

My other concern, is I've seen posts go from unread to read just by being logged in long enough and refreshing the board... I know that's why I'll miss posts sometimes when I'm just checking to see who's on real quick, then I come back 6 hours later and everything is marked as read making me miss some threads/posts. :unamused:

yeah, now you clowns will have to check all the non OT threads first! :wave:

(and I almost didn't post anything to see how long it would take to be noticed)

I got a PM saying that it had been done, so I woulda noticed first! :wave:

yeah, if anyone has any idea why that happens, I'll do whatever it takes to sort that out. I feel like crap when I see a post in sharing/critique that's been there for a week or so w/o any comments and it's new to me but marked read. :furious:

hmmm weird.

i like the concept, but would like both options.

jacobsen1
07-28-2008, 08:58 PM
the first one is supposed to be everything new w/o OT.
the second one is supposed to be new in OT only.

yeah, I want to get it working both ways, but I suck at coding in vB/php... :unamused:
I need to start using a proper editor like crimson so I can see WTF I'm doing.

You need to code one of the "new posts" to be just "new OT" somehow
