As many of you who may have noticed, and if you havent shame on you :thumbsup:, the forums have been reorganized. This was done because I felt that the way they were previously it was difficult to determine where a member should post their questions or look for their answers. I have created a few forums and merged some others. Please look around, explore and tell me what you think.

Thanks

Also does anyone think a forum for people to post pictures or links to albums of pictures would be fun to have here?

Would it be possible to have add another link between My Control Panel and View New Posts. Even though there is one in your Control Panel, it would be convient to have a 'My Recent posts' link there. It would save having to go to to move around to find it.


Edited: I wonder if I could include that link as part of my signature...?

Click the link that I just placed in my signature. When I click it, it will come up with the posts that I have recently done. I am not sure how it will come up with someone else's screen.

Currently, if I click View New Posts link, it will display the links that have new posts to them. If I do not read all of them, such as the Hi Jack This logs, then it will not come as a new post, but it will be listed for a few times. Eventually, the logs will drop from the list. The problem with this, is if I do not pay attention to the other pages of new posts, then evenually they will be dropped from the new posts. If I have posted to a thread, it will show up when I click Participating Topics, found in My Control Panel. Often, I will click this link to find if any new information has been posted to the threads that I have responded to.

I know it sounds complicated. If you like, I will post back w/ some pics :thumbsup:

Yes, but only if it can be done.

BTW: what happened, when you clicked the link in my sig?
