    We are currently upgrading parts of the message board. If you see any issues, please post them in this thread or PM me.

    One item new is an Activity Report.

    I saw that when I logged in this morning. I was wondering where it came from.

    I noticed it last night ("What's New?") but can't see it now.

    Saw it last night and this morning. I hope we keep the option of seeing all threads instead of all posts

    If you are saying what I think you are saying, I agree. I find the new activity stream an annoyance, one more step that I must go through in order to get to "New Posts" where I can see the entire thread.

    Is there some way to turn it off?

    No idea if we'll be able to choose but I'm not crazy about having to see ALL NEW POSTS lined up. I prefer that the threads that have new posts pop up but I want to choose which threads to click and read. In other words I want it like it is now.

    I hadn't even noticed it as I have bookmarked...

    http://dr1.com/forums/search.php?do=...e=vBForum_Post

    If you bookmark the above, you'll always get a list of all threads updated since your last visit.

    Note, bookmark the exact link above. Once in the browser, it will return the list with an url of something like"http://www.dr1.com/forums/search.php?searchid=1786049" or similar - if you bookmark that, it won't work.

    Additional Note, at least in safari, I can right click the "Get All New Posts" option under "New Posts" at top of this page, and choose to bookmark it. This accomplishes the same thing I'm suggesting. Not sure if IE, Firefox, etc have that option.

    Yes but will that change with this upgrade? That is the question. Will we get both options or will we be stuck with a list of new posts as in Robert's link? Right now the button/icon isn't there yet.

    I was wrong in my previous post. It doesn't add a step. This change replaces something else, so no more clicks needed to open "New Posts'.

    However, my opinion of the change is the same; it is of no value to me. The page it replaces had some value in that if I knew I wanted to start a thread in the Legal of North Coast forums I could go immediately there by scrolling down the list of forums. However, I can live with the change.

    What I would not want to give up, like you, Anna, is the ability to easily see the list of threads that have changed since we were last on the board. I want to be able to easily open the threads I am interested in and see the flow since the last time. I don't want to have to scroll down a list of last posts, many of which I am not interested it.

    So, no more complaints from me about this particular "upgrade" as long as there are no plans to take away being able to open up the changed threads when we click on New Posts.
