    Question How do you look through the GPWA forums?

    There are a few ways to look through the GPWA forums.

    If you just click on "Forums" in the top navigation on the site, or click on the "Forum Home" subitem, you are taken to a list of all of the different forum topic areas, and can look at posts within the different forum topic areas.

    Or you can click on "New Posts" or "Today's Posts" under the forums top navigation on the site to see a chronological list of posts since your last visit to the sites or new posts in the last 24 hours.

    How do you look at the forums? Do you navigate from the forum home page looking through the forums by topic, or do you look at a chronological list of recent posts? Or do you do a bit of both.

    Since we reorganized some of the forums today, I thought it would be interesting to know how folks look at the forums.

    Personally, I almost always look at recent posts to see what has happened since I last looked at the site. But sometimes I look by topic area, and I always look by topic area when I am going to start a new thread.

    And since we did reorganize some of the threads today, I'd also like to solicit feedback from folks about other changes that might make sense. We want to make the forums as useful to our members as possible, and having them organized the right way is part of doing a good job on that front.

    I usually check out the "New Posts".
    When I go to GPWA I am looking for two things. The first are the threads I made comments on, and I want to see others responses or respond to others comments on the same thread. Second, I look for new threads.

    I'm almost exclusively a "new posts" user as well - so reorganising the forum makes ZERO difference to me.

    I'll read about 20% of the threads that come up as new posts based on header content or subject matter or initiator/last poster.

    Some of that is due to the higher "noise" levels recently with one-track posters, and some of it is due to the forum being quite slow, taking around 8-10 secs to get into a new thread.

    Each visit takes between 5-10 minutes, once or twice a day.

    I'm right with you gooner... Except recently, I'd say I only actually read 5-10% of the threads - to keep myself under 15 minutes. So much is just noise and chatter.

    I don't post regularly but come here a lot and always start at the "New Post" myself.

    I always start going through the New Subscribed Threads in My Control Panel Then I check the New Posts and eventually Today's Posts. Only when I am looking for something specific, I use Forum Home for navigation.

    I pop into this forum several times each day. So, the simplest way to find recent posts and replies is the "new posts" function.

    If I'm searching for an older thread or specific information I will use the search function or browse the particular forum relating to my quest.

    The "new posts" button is a huge time saver for me on a daily basis. I avoid forums that don't utilize that feature.

    I've found the GPWA forum to be a GREAT help since I joined over a year ago. I always start from the forum home (as I do with all forums I have/had posted at). One thing that has prevented me from posting more here is the high number of sub-forums here. It's just too much for my simple mind to keep track of!

    But, I also do keep up with the auto e-mails that pop into my e-mail addy when a thread I've posted in has been replied to, as well.

    I search by forum. i dont find much difference between new posts and I mainly only look through a few different forums anyway.

    This would actually be a nice addition Michael. Gives you a bit of a snippet so you know whether you want to click and read. Also great for weeding out chit chat and useful posts

    All sections have the last post mentioned, and that what i usually look into in a forum.
    And that is what i look into. But i also look at older post, to see if there is something worth reading.

    Obviously i look at all the topics, because you never know when u miss something really interesting.
    But mostly i look at the recent posts, that's becuase of the high number or topics too

    Generally always start with the "new posts" listing but will go through other posts from time to time to see if I've missed something. All depends on how much time I have.

    Depends on the situation for me. When I first access the homepage since all I can remember is the gpwa.org domain, I start from the forum homepage. But when I got a message that somebody has responded on the thread where I've given opinions or ideas, then the new post would be my entry point to the gpwa.org forum.
