Hot Posts

Can Hot Posts be seperated by Board as the old site was?

    just adding my vote to the chorus requesting a customizable hot posts.

    given the sheer quantity of messages, the default choice 'all' for hot posts makes it a confused babble.

      Why, for the last two days, must I log on to read hot posts?

        Yes, you must be logged in for Hot Posts to work, as I'm pretty sure it's using info from a cookie on your computer to let you know what's new since you last visited Hot Posts.

        Now that new replies kick topics to the top of the list in individual boards, what is the difference between Hot Posts filtered by board vs. going straight to the individual board? Nothing, it seems to me.

        Hot Posts only seem useful if it can be customized to filter for multiple boards.

          For me, the difference is being able to "mark all as read" although I agree, it's not that much of a big deal. I'd still like Hot Posts to operate like it did on the old site, where I see new posts, not topics. And I agree that having it customized would really be great.

          I suppose I am since I didn't know there was options.

            I like this the way it is. I find I'm checking out posts for areas I wouldn't otherwise visit.

              So are you using "all" (the default) when launching Hot Posts? If so, is it overwhelming?

              Yes. You see a dropdown menu just below the Hot Posts header? Click on it and you can see any individual board. Right now, there's no way to see all the boards (or more than one) sorted by board. The ability to create a customizable Hot Posts is on my wish list.

                I hope that it's at the top of your wish list. ;>)

                I was referring to all of the boards sorted by board.
