Recent Posts and Edits

Wendy - thanks for clearing that up for me and sorry for not getting it the first time! I have it on both of my accounts - it's under the Shows Attended section there on the right. Can anyone else let me know if they don't have that feature? It doesn't work great, and takes me back to where I'd last posted in a few forums, but that's something at least. I like using the All Recent Posts and sorting by Forum to see what is new for me that way.

and Mindbender - yeah, for now. Editing was a concern for the changing-history thing, and because it was hooked in the code with Reply and that was behind the weird chronology of posts issue that folks were asking about. It is being looked at and worked on though to see if the magic-fingered folks can find a way to do 30-minute editing or something without it messing anything else up. Bottom Line: it's a software thing.

"Recent posts"

Yes, but that shows ALL recent posts..
I'm talking about this..
"Hey now, Rose-- if you go to your own profile page (click My Account on the left there) you'll see a section on the right of that page called User's Recent Posts, which is a partial solution to the problem you're talking about. However, partial is the operative term, as my Recent Posts seem to reflect the reality of several days ago"

which was marye's answer to Rose's question about how to get back where you left off instead of having to scroll through the entire history (or click "last" and then scroll back) of a folder to get to things you haven't read yet. I'm not seeing "User's Recent Posts" on my profile or anyone else's. I did see it one time, on one profile, and haven't seen it since.

Hey now, Wendy. I'm not trying to be smartypants here, but look on the left menu area, under Dead Community. Is there not an All Recent Posts button, above Member Map? I have a non-mod account here (shhhh.....) and I have that feature, so I'm thinking everyone else does too. Am I crazy?

"recent posts"

I don't have "Recent Posts" on the right side of my profile, only the shows I've marked as attended so far. I've believe I've seen recent posts only once, on someone else's profile.
Do I need to set something differently to show them?

short answers

1. Re The Scene, the short answer is that the subtopics are actually Forums (don't ask) because we were still getting the hang of some tools. This actually reflects a layer of complexity we don't need, but hey, a learning experience.

2. We sure hope so. It is reported early and often, and on the to-do list.

A couple questions -- on

A couple questions --

on main Forum page, only "The Scene" subtopics are listed. how come?

when going to a specific topic and clicking on "# new" you go to the first post, not the newest one. can/will this be changed?

for now, no...

the tech team has a lot on its plate.

Down the line, no telling what might happen. Hold that and all similar thoughts!
