Is it just me...

...but do people find it takes ages to navigate around the forum since the changes?

I've got about 80 subsribed threads I haven't had time to check, and I haven't been able to check all the threads in the lounges for ages now. Perhaps this is a good sign, and that the community has grown , but it worries me in case I miss something I could contribute too

One thing I'm not too sure about is the Even More Way Off Topic - personally I'd prefer if this was simply combined with the Way Off Topic - as that would be one less lounge to trawl, and besides I'm never sure which one to post on.

Another tool I would find really useful as it would speed things up would be if it were possible to go to the list of active threads and unsubscribe from multiple ones in a single visit. The reason for this is because I often post on the INtroduce Yourself Lounge, and so I'm not really that interested in seeing other posts on these threads. The same is true if I post on a happy birthday thread...

Sorry if it appears I'm having a bit of a moan

In every step, I hear your sobbing
Dare I break the shade with one caress
Dare I trespass to lift the veil
To touch the lips so soft and frail

It may be that love comes once and once only, preceded by rehersal, followed by regret.

Know well that however right a man may be they always find the fallen one guilty.

All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

Re: Is it just me...

It is taking longer to work my way around - might be worth considering reconsidering the "duplicate" threads.

Re: Is it just me...

I'm also finding it very difficult to keep up with things on AO, and have managed to miss entire threads

This is partly due to being busy at work (as I only log in from work), but there is definitely more activity here at the moment , and I'm struggling to keep up .

I used to have the time to post meaningful contributions and follow the development of a number of threads at a time, but now I seem to be reduced to single smilie posts and dipping in whenever I can.





Can you guys slow down a bit, so that I can catch up?

So why didn't you then?

I use the new posts button, and let it take me wherever it chooses throughout the myriad lounges of this forum we call AO. That way I only have to search through one list of threads to see which deserve my valued input

Wave Re: Is it just me...

We have a planned feature that allows you to save threads to a favorite list, but this is planned for club members at this time. We may also allow you to see the last 5 or so threads you posted to from a page in your user cp.

Even more off topic is for really off the wall topics, as club members you may have yout JNT type threads etc. We just prefer not to have those on our public board.

I Have a massive "to do" list at the moment, its almost over whelming, I am working on tools to help the Regionals which is taking up quite alot of my time. We do have a schedule and will try to get that back on track as soon as possible.

Regards,

Ian

Not sure how any recent board changes would have affected this too much If you use the new posts button, you shouldnt miss any posts that interest you as long as you select the right option, such as last 2 days. (if you missed visiting for a day.)

Re: Is it just me...

I think it is just down to how popular the forum is and how many people have joined up recently. Ian has shown the stats and they are very impressive so it is obvious that the amount of posts have just gone up and up.

I struggle sometimes though...especially if I am away for a day and can't get on here. I use the New Posts function but it can take hours just to look through them all for a 48 hour period if you want to be sure you have not missed something

Yeah - I should give that a go really. In the past I would just click on the lounge and go through the posts, but perhaps I need to use the New Post button instead
