Correct. Newest bring up new threads, not new posts. So any older threads with new activity do not show up as "newest".

On a brand specific forum I frequent, clicking on new posts brings up any new threads or older threads that have new activity since I last visited the site. A better way to do it IMHO.


This is all true, BUT . . . . .

In it's hey day, it would be common to see 4-5-6 pages of NEW threads....

I have read the complaint about over moderating for years and I think the opposite. I think the moderators are doing a fantastic job keeping the site civil. A couple of things I've noticed is that most (not all) of the time when someone complains I look at their user name and am not surprised that they are getting babysat. There is a wide demographic of people on here and like in real life there are some that are just not able to apply the correct behavioral filters.

As far as new posters disappearing, I kind of agree with that but not totally. Yes I agree that some new posters are seemingly attacked for no apparent reason. Other posters try to apologize for the behavior but I can't say I blame the OP from just disappearing. But then again there is a whole segment of computer users that treat forums differently than us. They post a question and read the answers. If they get the answer they want they move on with life and forget about the forum. Look at some of the long time users and their post count. There are many users who have been here for over 15 years and are still new or full members. These users get their answer and go back to their normal life.

The above is true, but it also represents a software change, function change which I think they could have notified us about. I used to whine (to myself) that the “Newest” was a list of the last sequentially added topics, versus the latest postings regardless of the age of the topic.

So I usually just go to “Active”

And this would be fine, IF it would only show the new threads since the last time YOU signed in. Or like some other forums indicate “the threads below here have not changed since the last time you logged in”

Camping World took it over. You didn't really think it would be as good as it was before them. DID YOU? They destroy everything they touch.

My observation is that the site is down a lot lately - hence not as many postings -

This has been discussed at great length on different threads...

The fact that almost EVERY question a newbie asks, they get flamed about everything... The new Comers just don't bother coming back in most cases...

It's a shame, Once you sift through the rubbish, there really is some great information to be shared, and great people as well.. Heck, I've been here since 2008 and still learn stuff ....
It's almost impossible to get interrogative answers from anyone in the know to them. I was trying to get specific testimonials or information, and you get replies like; Google it, or, far afield subject matter totally unrelated to the actual questions.
