Scroll down the "forums" page and you'll see a long list of the most recent posts. Depending on the level of site activity, the list could go back 24 hours or more. I'd like to see it go back as far as the reader wishes to go, but it's a handy feature as is.
I'd been enjoying pipes and cigars for many years before I found this forum. I have to say that it's very cool to have a place to share my thoughts on pipe carvers, tobaccos, and related stuff with people who are like-minded. AND it's great to read thoughts from other smokers, to get new insights into this centuries-old world! That is one of my most intense interests; to learn about pipes and carving from hundreds of years ago. --nv.
New threads show up automatically no matter what section in the bottom of the screen. I notice a lot of pointless threads started about nothing, when you could just add to an existing thread, or simply search first. I've found alot of info using the search feature so I don't have to start a thread asking a question. You can simply bump that old thread to say you used it and appreciate the tip. It's forum etiquette in the internet world, and the internet is serious business.
Not from me you won't, Roth. I might also add that I now ignore posts with deliberately cryptic titles, which in my opinion are usually attention-seeking devices to disguise poor material. The best titles should clearly state what the topic is about.
