    With so many off topic posts at this time of year The Recent Posts page has now been split into three parts as it was in the old place. Rallies/On Topic/Off Topic. This keeps the important stuff at the top. thanks (y)

    Could there be a button at the bottom of the "pane" containing, for instance, rally chat, which says "more" or "jump to the rest of this forum" so that you get straight to the whole of that forum ?

    Jim, I'm sure you have sound commercial reasons for the changes, but I do really really miss those little dots again each thread to say there are postings I haven't read. The dots and the "mark all thread read" was great to to limit how far down the page I had to scan.
    Of course the U-shaped whats it has appeared to let me when to stop, but has that was an ignored forum for me I never saw it and could scan to the end if necessary.

    Nope, I'm would expect that Jim would want a casual visitor and potential Funster to think that they had visited a MH site not the outpost of a political discussion forum. I see a MH forum as I select which fora to select and which to hide. Like it or not Fun is Jim's business, the fact that he manages it with a very light touch om the forum moderation side is all to his credit.
