Re: Keeping too clean of a house?
The default is thread cutoff is set different in each forum. At one time it was set to display 3 days worth of threads in each. A random check I found one set to current day, one at 3 days and one at a week! I have no control over this but will ask to get them all set to 10 days.
We each have 2 ways to change this, one is how Jerry explains; at the bottom of each forum there is a "Display Options" area and you can make a temporary change there for the forum you are in. The other way is you can go into your "UserCP" and scroll down the left side to "Edit Options" under "Settings and Options". Then scroll to "Default Display Options" and find the "Default Thread Age Cut Off" and set the amount of days you want to see every time you visit... Be sure to scroll to the bottom and click on "Save Changes"!
Keep in mind the site dynamic changes all the time and as much as everyone wants to help it also gets old answering the same questions over and over. Going way back folks did this a lot, after a while we went through the "do a search" phase where folks just got tired of the same old questions. This has happened on all the forum boards to some degree. I think guys also kind of figured it out an now there is a lot of help coming from research of past threads as well as folks asking questions... Also there was a time when the forums were their busiest but it was all just small talk, nothing really to do with Camaros and that has also tapered off. Other observations I have made is there are fewer members jumping in on the thread if the answer is already stated, it use to be 27 replies and 20 of them were saying the exact same thing... As well there are fewer arguments over answers than ever before!
There is one other observation that I have and that is the "Project Threads" that can run 16 - 20 pages at times end up containing a lot of tech material and as cool as the project threads are the tech info gets lost in them because of the shear size of the thread....
All of this is ever changing and can impact how busy the forums look and often makes it seem slower at times when it probably isn't.
Oh! don't forget the 2 searches; "Todays Posts" and "New Posts" they make the time you spend accessing the forums here shorter even though you are getting the same amount of info as if you went from forum to forum...
