Ive been wanting to write this up for a while now.
As most of the long-time, dedicated BoSS members know their way around the forums and know when to post and when not to, newly joined members might not be as comfortable with posting at first, trying to look for conversations and topics they would like to take part in; hence, they might infuriate other people by bringing up old threads.
There is an easy solution to that problem, and, additionally, it makes posting easier, since you eliminate the boring process of searching for things youd like to talk about in different sections.
~ In the top, right corner of the screen, you will see a link -View New Posts-. By clicking on it, it will do the obvious and bring up a list of the most recent posts made. The beauty of this feature is that you dont have to enter one section of the forums and then exit that section, in order to check what is in the other sections. All posts are brought together in one list.
~ For example, if you were gone for a week or two, and you would like to know what has been happening on the forums, look at the right, bottom corner of the screen, and look for a line that says, "Get active topics for: Today/This Week/Two Weeks/This month/Three Months/And the whole year if you would like".
This way you can easily stay on top of the things going on without wasting to much time, searching for things. Plus, it brings down the percentage of people bumping up old threads, since you will know when the posts were made.
Also, for posting rules, read the announcement by Shadow.
Hope this helps.
