opinions are what makes the world go 'round.some people love to post a lot some don't.can't make everyone happy.i feel like thats what makes this place unique.if someone posts a lot and its meaningful and helps then i personally don't see anything wrong with it.its funny how certain people hate polls or they hate this or hate that.if you don't like it don't read it!

    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

    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..

     

    i certainly agree with you on those points.i think some people are just not happy unless they are complaining about something or criticizing everything.or better yet trying to tell everyone what they should or shouldn't do.......

      DisneyWhat's unique about this place is that everybody deserves a chance to post without one poster posting 7-10 threads back to back and knocking everybody else's off the main page quickly.

      Like I said before if it is so meaningful and requires a lot of posting, put it in a blog.

      How many times have we went through this?  What makes it different this time?

        if you look closely on the first page i have two topics there.one of them has gotten 21 responses.the reason it has gotten that many responses is because it is holding peoples interest enough to STAY there on the first page........

                Some can talk until they are blue in the face.. but it doesn't get to me..

                The Block/Hide button has been the greatest invention here on LP..

                 

                I dont open posts I am not interested in.. I am not a nagger though.. I dont nag about this or that..

                Those that open a post just to nag..  just need something to post about...

                  What?We just had one poster post 7 threads back to back.  You better hurry and look at the other threads because they will be pushed off the main page quicker.
