    Suggestions for the site

    I think many people use Recent Posts to browse. I would recommend changing the time line on the RP search from 4 hours to 24 hours.

    Fine by me.

    And while we're at it, can responses to blog entries be included in Recent Posts?

    Blogs whither on the vine, and IMHO one reason why is because no-one knows they're there and that comments are being posted.

    Great idea. When iwatt and I undertook our stat guy vs jock debate I remember requesting we start a thread about it for that exact reason.

    I'll add this, after draft night the fpbot needs to get corraled in the chat feature.

    I dunno what, exactly, the default timeline is for an RP search. But it is longer than 4 hours. After my little 3 week hiatus, I logged in to RPs and got three pages of entries. That was just the most recent post from each of 50 or so threads over several days.
    Screw you guys, I'm going home.

    I think biggie is right on this one (it was bound to happen eventually). The recent posts page shows the posts since your last visit to that page.

    I've tried to do that but there doesn't seem to be a way within vbulletin.

    The experimental evidence is to the contrary. I went to the RP page before writing this, and I will go back after this and post what I see.

    > Forum Actions
    >> General Settings
    >>> Set "Default Thread Age Cut Off" to "Use Forum Default"
    >>>> Try back tomorrow (It appears this setting change is in the moment and not retroactive, I think. Prolly wrong as usual.)
    Screw you guys, I'm going home.

    It was at Forum Default.

    I set it to 2 days. Let's see if that effects anything.
