Minor changes to Board Titles
« on: 10:36:50, 03 November, 2014 »
We have made a few minor alterations to the boards to (hopefully) give a little more clarity as to where posts are most relevent and to make browsing a specific board a little more focussed.

How-To has been renamed Questions & Answers. This is where most non image but astro related activity should be posted. 

Some text has been added to the review boards. Reviews should be kept for the "Ive bought a ???? and its $£$%" type posts. User reviews are a very useful resource so are most welcome. Hopefully we will be adding some more detailed reviews of kit over the next few months. Queries about equipment should be in the Telescopes/Equipment/Accessories board under Questions and Answers.

Chris

ps we are in the process of tidying up a few boards that have become a little muddled. To avoid there being hundred of "this topic has been moved" redirections posts, they are only being added to current active topics.

Hmmmmmm.

Since this morning, I find that when I go back after reading a thread, it's still in the Unread Threads list - prior to changes today, the system would remove it from the list automatically ...

Any ideas ?

Mike

My unread list does shrink after I read the post....

This whole "unread" stuff does seem a little hit & miss if you use multiple 'puters / devices...

If I just use the obsy machine, it all hangs together well...  :whatever:

I almost always use read unread posts since last visit, so unless I am posting a new thread, sections are pretty irrelevant to me unless I am specifically looking for something.

Not sure what other people do.
