    Are you using Bookmarks?

    It isn't a Bookmarks question, but the style of the navigation. As was said, the old s/w would show you (for example) all 12 new posts on one screen. Depending on how they fall in this new s/w, you might see only the first 4, and have to go to the next page for the other 8, etc. If you are not in the habit of checking to see if you are on the last page you might miss those.

    BTW, I found another strange thing. I thought the Bookmarks list would show all the discussions with new posts all grouped together at the top. But I follow "Stories From the Sales Frontlines" and it is always buried below a few discussions that do not have new posts in them. I've missed it a few times because I don't scroll down far enough. That's gotta be a bug.

    The old forums would show new posts on one page (I don't recall how many it would set up to handle). If there more carried over on another page, those would shown after you hit "Read New Posts" either immediately or after some other subscribed forums.

    I think it did that at first.

    I asked the Help Desk about that and received the explanation that it has been marked in some way that it's not being put in the order chronologically of topics with new posts. Instead it's being allowed to "sink" lower in the listings. The reason given was that it's an off topic kind of forum, rather than being hard core automotive in nature. I have paraphrased the explanation.

    That seems a rather strange rationale.

    The "trick" is that with the new forums, ALL the posts are "new" to you as I discovered when I tried to track down all the discussions I follow. Fortunately, going to the last page of the discussion makes that discussion "marked as read" and you'll go to new posts the next time there are any.

    Can someone tell me how these long dead topics are now showing up? Stock Market and Investing is a good example. No new posts in YEARS!

  • steverstever YooperlandPosts: 40,132

    There's new posts on the last page. Click on the highest page number and that'll catch everything up in that discussion (that "marks everything read").

    OK, so now, under My Drafts I have one that was sent to Uplander in the Studebaker Forum.

    Except I never wrote those words nor did I respond to him. ????

  • Kirstie_HKirstie_H Posts: 10,830

    @isellhondas - that's weird. Just delete those and let us know if they reappear, or if any mystery drafts reappear.

    Wow, I've been here since 1945.

    In my profile, I've just earned the Ancient Membership badge.

    Pretty much fits. :D

    I appreciate that but I actually started in 1996 not 1998. Does this mean I'm fully vested and I get 5 weeks of vacation pay?

    Back in those days, we had a two year probation period, so no credit for that. And no vacations, take your smartphone and keep posting. B)

    You sure as heck didn't have a smartphone in 1998. You had to walk to Edmunds, through the rain and snow, uphill both ways, to make a post. ;)

    lol (and sad to say, I still don't have a smartphone). Welcome to the Ancient Member club (maybe we can lobby to change that to "seasoned" members).

    @isellhondas, before my time but if you look at the Wayback Machine, apparently you had to send in your comments to Town Hall by mail by in '96 (email I assume, lol).

    I think we need to make a Prehistoric Member badge just for you. :D

    I'm not as ancient as some, but then again, it's not the years, but the mileage that counts :p

    The date was determined from the first comment you posted in the Forums.

    That might happen if you hit the quote button but don't post anything. Then, when you leave the forum or head to another discussion, the quote turns into a draft. It's happened to me a few times.

    G'day

    Suddenly, I have more badges than a Cub Scout!

    It must be some compensation for my incompetence at ball catching when I was a real Cub!

    Cheers

    You can simply not sign out. I generally don't and come back to the forums from a Favorites link and I'm signed in. On the occasions that I actually do sign out, yes, I'm signed out.

    Heh... if feels like I'm telling the old joke... Doc, it hurts when I do this... B)

    Well, I went there and deleted those words that I didn't write but it still shows that I have a draft and the words are back. No big deal I suppose.>

    Did you go into "Drafts" in your navigation box on the right side? IIRC, it lists your drafts on the left side of the page. Then I moused over the draft and got a gear icon in the top right. Using that gear tool, I could delete the draft.

    Good luck!

  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,623

    Done! Thank, you! I didn't see a gear but there was an X there that I clicked on and, poof, no more draft. I do wonder how it got there in the first place since I didn't write those words.

  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,859

    Drafts were a teeny bit confusing for me at first too. If you start typing, you have them after a short period of time. (A little pop up notification appears) If you post, they go away. If you don't, you can go back to them later and finish them, or delete as you see fit.
