some advice on a thread for you to considerSumoRunner;n885279 said:The brain has a magic number, seven. Go ahead, research it. There is some stack inside your head that will naturally retain seven pieces of information but begins to lose track at 8, 9, or more. 24 is overwhelming.
SumoRunner I've been on holiday so only just now read your post or I'd have repied when you wrote it. I'm on other forums and see no basic difference in the site design. The headings are not topic headings but forum section headings, if you want to read posts about Anti Coagulation you go to that section, if you wat to read posts about Valve Selection you go to that section, and so on. It would be awful if you had only topics showing rather than the defferent sections. But honestly the easiest way to naviagate this forum, or indeed any other similar forum, is to click the 'Activity Stream' button at the top of the page, you get the latest posts shown in order so you can easily read what is being posted in an instant - that's how it is on other forums too, thogh some might call that button 'Latest posts' rather than 'Activity Stream'.SumoRunner;n885279 said:Here's one reason why new users may not come in or stay once they've found us. Site design. The top forum page has no less than 24 topic headings. Some are only hours old, some days, weeks, even over a year since anyone has posted there. Why keep a topic open when no one has shown an interest in many months?
I agree with you on that. I would not be posting like I do on a facebook page.epstns;n885621 said:I've never used FB, and plan not to do so in the future. Just too many data security issues. . .
