How do most use this site?

I use the "New post" link when I first log on or open the page. I guess this brings up the latest post by a member? Is there any reason to through the forums? Or would the latest post in each forum show up in the "NewPost " Link.
I am just asking to be sure that I am not missing out on stuff going on. Is there a better form of searching this Web site for activity? I am afraid I am missing out on something. dunno?

New post will bring up the latest post on all categories.
How ever on my PC, sometimes all I get from new post is what has been posted after I loged in.
Then I use Active Topics button to find the fresh stuff.

I just go to the forums page and look at what I want from there. On that note...am I the only one who noticed this forum moved from the top of the page to the bottom and then back to the top over the last couple of days?

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

Too funny POD!!!

Larry... different ideas being discussed about OT....

Jeeps the reason you sometime have those problems is due to the cookies from the TWF site...

I use the New Posts way unless I screw myself and click it and don't get thru them all in a timely manner, then next time I use the "last day" option under achive topics... that gets me to everything but it sucks cause you have to scroll back to find where you left off...

I hate it when I miss more than two days. Unlike one of my Wife's soap operas, allot happens and its hard to catch up.

And I'm so glad you mention the move... I had only been here once or twice before that move occurred, and I seriously though I had gone insane!! *phew*

I usually use new posts or last day or 2. I've been gone for two weeks and I'm just gonna use the new post because it would take too many man hours to catch up.
