    A catch place for the misc...

    Can the pinned threads in Draft Talk be removed? They are for last year draft and not really active/relevant now.

    I don't know how everyone else feels, but I kind of miss the "old front page". The current front page lists the following items on the right hand side:
    • New Threads
    • New Profile Posts
    While "New Threads" is kind of helpful, I would prefer to see it bumped down and replace "New Profile Posts". In its place, the return of "Recent posts to threads you are watching".

    I found that list of threads that I had previously posted to, but have new information added, to be far more beneficial than what it was replaced with.

    Just my 2 cents. :coffee:

    Personally I hardly ever look at the columns on the side. I haven't figured out a use for profile posts anyway so that is definitely a wasted space. New threads and most recent posts would help more.

    ETA: Maybe use it for a "hot links" area such as a live twitter feed of favorite tweeters, or a shortcut to the rules area.

    New Threads is "New" to the forum I think and isn't bad, but gets dated fast as you go down the list. I also think it may encourage people just to post new threads, even though that topic probably already has a thread.

    My #1 go to was the "Recent posts to threads you are watching". That taylor made my front page with information on Threads I am interested in and tells me there are new posts to it. Sad to see it gone. Fortunately, I have my alerts set up to alert me of those.

    There are some youngsters who will be pissed if you don't allow wild, unthinking, emotional posts. Oh, you said bring Twitter back. :)

    Try something like 1stn10, user54304, user1265, if those aren’t available go random.
    Thanks I appreciate you doing this.

    Not in favor of that, but would totally get “Poppa San is TJ_Rubley’s_#1 Fan and founder of Turnstile Tony Mandarich fan club.”

    Anything on bringing back the Twitter function? It looked so nice compared to just copy/pasting tweets.

    I've noticed since yesterday evening maybe? That certain things aren't working well. "New Posts" for example would bring up anything new and it would disappear fromt he list if I had read what was there. Now it's as if it's frozen or something. It will say populate 3 threads or something that have new posts, I read them and come back and hit new posts and the same 3 or 4 or whatever will be there, and they will be the exact same posts.

    But if I go thru the forum and just scan for new threads or posts there will be all sorts of new posts. I think this actually started a day or 2 ago. There were some threads I missed completely because they didn't pop up in the "new posts", but I found them in the "new thread" column. The thread on T. Hill for example never showed up in new posts for me, even though it was obviously active. But the noticeable freezing seems to have started yesterday sometime.

    Yup, saw that. I was starting to think....."how do we pass a hat around to pay the fee and get this place opened back up again."

    Much like a good woman, you don't miss something til its gone. ;)
