    Who didn't know about ACTIVE TOPICS

    Took me a couple of weeks when I first joined the forum here, and wondered if others maybe hadn't found the ACTIVE TOPICS feature that makes life soooo much easier rather than hopping from forum to forum trying to keep up with things.

    Click on ACTIVE TOPICS and any new posts or responses to active posts bumps things to the top. All you have to do is a refresh now and again to see the latest and greatest.

    I never knew this, so thanks! I wish there was a way to filter the forums though. :( I'll have to stick with my old way. :(

    New Posts or Active Topics or hopping from forum to forum. I do that to catch some of the inactive older topics that I might have missed. It all depends on how much time I have & time is all I have, lol. What I don't use much is the Search feature but I know it's there if I need it.

    It works great until a few folks decide to reply to every new member in the New Member section. They end up pushing every other conversation down. My biggest pet peeve I like to sit down with my coffee and all you see is one member replying constantly.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    I don't have the time nor patience to read down through the forums. I skim the new posts, and that's it. I'm sure I miss a lot, but I do have a life outside of defensivecarry.com.

    Go to advanced search and select any criteria you want/don't want (you can choose not to see the new member intros for example).

    Gets rid of a lot of the repeats, spam, ads.
