Default How do you read QB?

I'm curious how others read this board. I mostly start at the "What's New" tab and scroll down for interesting topics, using mouse to rollover headlines to see first line. Then I click if I'm interested. Sometimes I go in by topic, like Mission Organization, or Resources if I'm in the mood for something particular. Problem is if you don't go in often, you don't see interesting things that have been moved down the line by new posts. Sometimes I go to a later page of What's New and work backward to find conversations that are of interest. Now and then I go to my account to see threads I've started or commented on and see what others have said about the topic.
How about you?

I get the digest daily....so in the morning with my coffee I read thru that, each topic except vintage sewing machines...not of interest to me....then I will go to HOME, click on main and read any others of day that were not in digest.....cruise thru other topics to see if anything strikes me as interesting....maybe add a comment/question....then shut down and go on with my day.......

Hmmm, I still haven't figured out how to get the digest. Need to explore. I also haven't gotten the hang of "subscribing" to a thread. Thought I clicked the right thing, but not working.

I go to "What's New" also when I first look. I have heard mention of the Digest but have no idea how to get it. Can anyone give insight?

I just get into the Home page, read Main, then Pictures, then General Chit-Chat.

I mostly look at pictures. If it doesn't have a picture, most times I don't look. I only go to What's New and the ones that are emailed to me. That takes enough time.

I do the very same thing as you do. Some days I will explore a little bit more if I am looking for something in particular and use the search option at the top right corner

I click on "Archive" at the bottom of the page which brings up a forum list. Clicking on eg: "Main" will list all the posts in that category. The ones I haven't read are in blue. The ones I have read are brown. That way I can limit myself to one cup (large mug) of tea before I start my day!

I also go to What's New and look at the pics and if I have time I may go to the tute's. I didn't know they had a Digest probably looked right at it. Sue

I start on the "SETTINGS" at the top to read through the posts
on threads that I follow/commented on.

Than I go to the "What's New" and look for topics I want to read
more on, or see the pictures etc.

After that I go to MAIN and work my way down the list.
