    I dunno. Thankfully, there's a lot more to life than the internet.

The thought occurred to me that perhaps the missing threads were not being displayed because I had already viewed them since the last posting, but that's not the case either, as some recent threads I've already viewed show up, and some don't. It appears random.

    A problem I have been seeing on the forums since the change is that not all of the threads show up on the "Latest Activity" tab. If you click on "Forums" at the top and then click on the tab for "Latest Activity", you should be seeing all of the most recent posts on the forum. For some reason, some of the more popular threads don't show up on this making it hard to know if there has been any new activity. Right now, the two threads that have had very recent activity that don't show up on my listing are Unit 13 thread (https://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com...read-2020-2021) and the PWS Kings thread (https://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com...4626-pws-kings). Not seeing if there is new activity is going to reduce the use of the forums. I've had to subscribe to the unit 13 thread so that I know if there has been anything new without having to dig through each specific forum. Even that way though, I still need multiple extra "clicks" to get to the new content.

    Is there a reason some threads do not get included in the "Latest Activity" listing?

    Thanks Mike, still getting use to the new layout. Much better from what I see so far.

    I do not like after you read a post and click off of it, then the post you were just reading is gone. If you want to go back to it it is no where to be found. Frustrating.

    I just don't understand the "New" priority......which seems to be that the forum is now geared towards people coming here and researching a "Subject" that they desire information about. I just want to come and see a "Current" list of threads with new "Posts" in order "most current at the top". I don't need all the useless information on the "Trending".....with it's big box of un-needed information.

    It feels like your trying to reinvent the "Wheel" with new and improved, super flash. When the old "New Posts" was perfect. Keep the trending thing, if it rings some peoples bell, I find it just annoying.

    That's better, but there still seems to be an awful lot of sterile white.
