Is anybody else here used to another board?
I'm trying to break in here, and it's impossible the way the threads are set up. I have to scroll down the whole thing to see if a new message is posted. What simple trick am I missing?

1. You are missing a manic obsessive personality required to play in this box
Keep plugging away and let your ideological adrenaline take over.

3. Oh, thanks.
I guess it's always a bit rough getting on with a new crowd. I'll make my way.

2. Two things...
(And yes, I am on an ezboard board)....

One, accept that things move to fast here to read everything, unless you do exactly what you are saying above.

Two, use the 'My Posts' at the top of the page. That way, if people are actually replying to you, you will see it!

Have fun!

5. Yeah, it does
But you're right that on the really long threads, unless you click on each response, so that they change color and you know you've read them, yeah, you basically have to re-read the thread and look for replies...

It's a fun place, though!

6. Yup, "My Posts" is a great tool,
It lets me bounce from forum to forum without missing replies. Once I found it, I use it all the time!

:)
