Page question

Page question Can't Post

When I click on "Off Topic" 20 different subjects pop up on the first page. My astronomy forum is tucked away on the second page even though it has more recent posts. I'm not asking about it because I want to be noticed. I just wondered if others might have missed the planetary-Moon alignment because they clicked on the first page and didn't see it. Just wondering....not really complaining.....I haven't been here long enough to earn the right to complain..LOL...besides that, I don't like to.

When an active post falls to Page 2.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Start a new thread. Our threads don't "bump" up with new replies, so "regular feature" weekly (or biweekly or just "whenever it's time for a new one") threads are the norm for ongoing topics of interest.


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Behold, Cygnus, you have a "new" astronomy thread, just below the current Fiesta thread!

A little bit of Admin magic, there: I 'detached" the last part of your thread that had gone to page 2. Now you can add more astronomy stuff to this new thread.

And as Silverlode said, when you see your most recent thread pass to page 2, simply start a new one. Smile Decide what title you'd like for them!

Is that done because it starts going too slow at around 250 posts? I will start a new thread when needed. Thank you so much for your magical feat. That reminds me of the comic strip with the birds. (I can't think of what it's called now) Whenever they need their computer fixed they don't bring in a technician, they bring in a wizard.

That's two separate issues. [In reply to] Can't Post

The boards have a default of showing the latest 20 threads. We can still post to threads that are on page 2 - or 10, etc - but most people won't see them. As you've been advised, when your thread drops to page two just start a new one and pick up from where you left off. Smile

250 posts within a thread is the limit we've imposed as longer threads can cause the discussion board to have fits. TORN's server can be a bit creaky around the edges but we manage to keep her running. For the most part.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Thanks again [In reply to] Can't Post

You are always so helpful. That comic strip I was thinking of is "Shoe".
