Is there a time limit on how long a thread will show?

Is there a time limit on how long a thread will show? For instance, I created a thread in the performance area asking advice on clutches. I wanted to see the responses I got over the weekend, but the thread has dropped out. I can do a search and find it, but I was curious if there is any rhyme or reason as to how long a thread is visible? Thanks!

Re: Is there a time limit on how long a thread will show?

It works like this, each forum is made up of many pages. When you post a new topic to the forum (called a thread) it is on the top of the page but as other threads are added they take over the top of the list moving older threads down the page. When a thread gets posted to it is treated as new and goes back to the top of the list. The more active a forum is with members posting new threads and replying to existing threads the order really gets fluid. Only so many threads are shown per page and you get to control how many days back you can go back. Look for "Display Options" at the bottom of each forum.

Your clutch thread is about 16 down on the list in the Performance forum and was last replied to on the 13th.

Thanks! That was very helpful! I had not noticed the display options at the bottom of the page.

One "ttt" (ToTheTop) reply by you would not seriously violate forum etiquitte, and would put you back on the first page for a day.
