I usually check the Message Board once a day, and I start by clicking on New Posts. Since the new Message Board started in January, it seems like there are around 75 new posts a day. Sometimes more, occasionally less. Now all of a sudden I’m getting 300 to 350 new posts, even when I check twice a day. Is this really true? What’s going on? Or maybe my web browser is acting up?
I honestly won’t be able to even come close to keeping up with numbers like that. I do have real work to do, you know. If those numbers are accurate, then some people are probably very happy about it. But for me it just means I won’t be reading the Message Board as much, since there is too much to follow. I realize this is a weird complaint, but is there such a thing as too much?? :shock:
Strange indeed. Why would anyone feel obligated to read every post on a message board?
There are many sections of this board that I don’t even bother with. I could care less about the “SPAM” section(s) and I haven’t visited the “CANADIAN” section since this new board was developed (no offence to my Northern friends).
There is so much water on this earth that I can’t drink it all. Rather than to stop drinking the water, I will only drink what I need
I agree something happened in the last day or so. I have reread multiple posts today that I know I read before even though they are marked as not having been read yet. Just go to the Quick Links and select “Mark Forums Read” to start over and all should be fine.
Jeffrey, You’re right, I don’t feel obligated to read every post. I just scan down the subjects to see if anything jumps out at me. But with over 300 to scan, I don’t even do that now. From what others are posting here, I wonder if there is a problem with the board software??
Sometime Friday or Saturday, something changed. I always log off so it clears the cache. Then when I log back in and hit new posts, it only has the messages that have been posted since I logged off.
Now, almost everything shows up as a new post. Instead of 10 or 15, I have 325 new posts. I also tried to open a few messages on I think Friday and the “server was busy”. That lasted about 15 minutes. Since then, I have had the problem noted above.
Have you been talking with my psychiatrist, Dr Vicodin, or my psychologist, Dr Percocet?
I subscribe to the update notification for all forums. They arrive in my email each night at 9:00 Pacific Time. Then I simply look at the thread titles and decided whether or not I want to read the new threads in the Forum. I already subscribe to email notification of old threads that I was interested in, so I don’t have to look at the updated threads.
