    Longer list of recent forum posts

    Just wondering if there is a way of providing a longer of list of recent forum posts. If front page real estate is at a premium then why not use the method they have on other sites (e.g. OS News) a link to to seperate page with a longer list.

    Re: Longer list of recent forum posts

    TBH I never even look at that list. As Russ mentioned, there is a link to show new posts since last visit which works quite well. I find that this is a lot more useful since I can read through all the posts I haven't looked at yet.

    IMHO the block that displays the most recent posts simply takes up a lot of space and increasing its size would look clumsy - it doesn't fit on my 1800x1200 svcreen as it is!

    Perhaps a better solution for people requiring the most recent posts would be an RSS feed of the last 20-30 posts then you could use a live bookmark in Firefox or an RSS reader?

    Re: Longer list of recent forum posts

    I want to see what's being discussed in a day. I check posts out as they're posted, but want to re-visit after. They sink without trace with 'view posts since last visit'.

    I'm not a fan of rss readers, I just can't be bothered with that/ not found a reader I like

    If the front page is wanted to fulfil another purpose, the role should be split, and have another page for forum posts. Mostly, like 95% of the time I wan't to check out the forums, and it's not made easy.

    Re: Longer list of recent forum posts

    see my earlier post re 'hotlist' of topics - it makes absolute sense also in this context
