Re: Cool New Board Trick

Forums General Melanoma Community Cool New Board Trick Re: Cool New Board Trick


      On a serious note, that is one of the concerns I have about the main board. Not that anyone would intentionally push a new board participant with a specific question off the board, but it could happen accidentally. If someone has a post that a lot of people keep responding to or if there are several like that such as NED posts or updates from someone a lot of people know, then a newcomer could have there post pushed down and a lot of people might miss it if they don’t keep scolling back through the board.

      The way it used to be was that if you viewed the board by post instead of thread it was the same way it is now which was good if you checked the board a lot. But it was also good that the threads were ordered by the initial thread post so you could scroll through them up to the point you checked last.

      The way it is now you can’t scroll through threads by when the thread was posted since they are ordered based on the latest response. I hope as an enhancement that will be something that comes back in the future because I think it could be an issue in terms of knowing when someone new has posted and often they are the ones most in need of responses.
