Re: sex on the forum

Dam, I saw I had a private message and got all excited because I just had a good feeling about Jannette, I think she might have been " the one " but the message wasn't there. :-(

Sorry Dave. Don’t feel too badly though. I suspect Jannette was actually a big hairy bloke in reality .

Clean up was actually phenomenal. Over 300 new “members” hit us at once.

300 Jannettes? That would make for a lot of happy Daves finding 'the one'.

Why does everyone hate Dave so much that they encouraging him to ruin his life? I try to spare people from my own mistakes.

Re: sex on the forum

For one fleeting moment I thought this was going to be exciting.

Sadly, just another example of people failing to put enough information in the thread title to know what the subject matter actually is.

Here the addition of the word "spam" would have been enough to know not to bother...

I do wish that when people post they would give a better idea of content. Even more, I wish that the format of the site included the first few lines of the post to give a real clue. As is the case with emails or a web search.

We all get so many emails that having even a coarse filter is critical. Especially on a site such as this where what is fascinating and helpful to some may be of zero relevance to others.

Actually, it does, at least when accessed by laptop, I don't use the phone app, so don't really know what it shows. When I go to "New Posts", each time I let the cursor rest on the title of a thread, the first few words of the first post display; and, fwiw, the same happens if I look at my CP (which is presently set up that it displays posts from threads I respond to).

If you are accessing by phone, perhaps clicking on the "Contact Us" button will get you some help from the site staff, as your problem may be a configuration issue at your end.

Hope this helps,

Ann

Wish it did - but I am afraid that it does not.

I am referring to the nearly daily email that comes from CF.

On that all you get is small close spaced topics which, rather uselessly, take you to larger print wider spaced from which you can go to the web.

I find that pretty unhelpful. Just about every other entity gives a title and then some subtext so you have some idea as to what is being addressed.

I think the problem may be the email notification option that you have chosen. It sounds like you have chosen "Daily updates by email" and so are only getting a summarised list.

If you chose "Instant notification by email" then you definitely get the entire post in the body of the email.

You can set these options both as an overall default choice as well as individually for each thread.

Eg:

- I have the default set to Instant
- I use Instant for every Thread that I follow
- I use Weekly for every Forum that I follow

Here are a couple of screenshots. Hope this helps
