Hello All,

I just wanted to know if any feels the same about the posts list on the main LP page?

I know we have search and tons of other features to find things but, there is so many so fast that I find posts from earlier in the week I didn't even know were topics because they get lost so quick.

Please post all comments of what you think about this and any suggestions that would help make it easier.

 

Thanks

Powerplayer

Good luck to everyone!!!

    if no one replies to the posts they tend to go to the second or third page pretty quick.if people reply to them consistently they will stay on the first page........

      Lottomike,

      thanks for the comments..I'm thinking maybe having the posts stay for a longer period of time...like a timer on them for like say 10 or 15 mins so this way they don't disapear so quickly.

      2 or 3 pages down they get loss really quick..next thing u know there on the 4 th or 6th page down

      Good luck to everyone!!!

        I don't really think that what you're stating is possible.  Where will the newer posts go if the older ones are still occupying space on page 1???

         

        Though, I can not say that I am a big fan of the new search feature.  Takes me too long to find my own stuff, let alone someone else's. 

        I am starting to store to onto my fav list--but I just remembers while typing this that I could still use the daily topics feature.

          That' is why I try not to post anything in the p-3 or 4 forum. Within 20 minutes, my post is in the 3rd page...LOL

            SmashWhen one person posts 7 different threads back to back and people responds, it moves the other posts off quicker.  I think it messes up the rhythm.

            I think that if someone have that much to say they should move it to their blob.

                  On the blue task bar at the top of this page click forums then click daily topics a page will open and list the topics from 12 midnight to the present time. To look for topics posted yesterday or the day before there is a calendar on the right side of the page. Click the previous day. 
                  All the tools for searching posts are here you just need to practice finding what your looking for.

                  Searching pick 3 topics can be a chore because there are so many of them however the other topics in the different groups are easily searched. As there aren't as many of the them posted on a daily basis.

                      The multiple posters need to learn to title their topic to cover multiple posts.

                      Mid-draws

                      Eve draws

                      Etc

                      Then post a reply for each state of prediction on that topic.

                      It has been mentioned before.

                        how many posts are set on your first page..

                        you can get up to 50 on a page.

                        The old Research method was easier to use to find posts.

                         

                        Others complain that some people take up lots of room with individual posts on individual states.. They complained when I did my tracking that way..

                        There are several others on the pick 3 forum who still do what others complained about when I did it.

                        However they do it daily..for posts.. example.. they ran a post for OH middday 12/1 and OH even 12/1 and then started another one for Oh midday 12/2 and OH even 12/2.. ( which is fine with me.. )

                        When I was posting for a state.. I did both midday/evening in same post and ran that post for over a week.. (to take up less room on the forum)  People complained about this and I stopped.. People complained because I stopped..  (NO win situation there.)

                        I dont see much complaining about the ones who are doing it now..

                        There are people who complain to be complaining.. (that is ok with me too)  If it makes them happy to complain.. be happy..

                        Some will try and tell where your posts should go.  If they aren't interested in your topic they had rather you put it in your blog..

                        However, they dont consider blogging their own..

                        When I see a post by a member I am not interested in.. I skip it..  I hide  replies from those posters in the event they post on my posts. 

                        I am a much happier camper now..

                          No NoI don't see other posters posting up to 10 posts back to back.  How can you skip a post when they are different titles from the same poster.  I gladly skip them but sometimes the choices are few because the other posts are pushed off the main page.

                          The average poster run about 2 threads a week not 10 at a time and they don't post them back to back and push the other posts off the main page.

                            My vote is for yes. Sometimes certain topics are shown as new, but if it isn't active, then it disappears and/or closes after no one posts after 1 month.
