    How far back do you go when looking at the message board?

    I usually only go to the first two or three pages - at the most -

    So I can see why the same questions keep showing up. The good/interesting thing about this for us "oldies" - in my case only about a year around here - is to see how much we've learned!

    It depends on the thread. Some threads are so long, I cannot keep up with them. Especially the diary ones. I'll peek at them once in a while, but that's about it. Can't sit and read all of them or I'd be here forever.
    I just can the topics, I don't go to Recent Topics, I just hit every topic and whatever thread is highlited, I'll check out if it interests me.
    Sometimes it looks like I live on the board, but in all actuality, I forget to close the window at times. lol

    I jump all over the place. I have looked at all of the tutorials. I have only been here 4 months, and learned so much! I will have 3 windows open at the same time and not always here when it says I am.I do try to hit main and pictures. And try to welcome each new one. Living where there are no other quilters and no where to take classes, this board has become my quilting guild.

    When I come to the Board, first thing I do is hit the "Read new messages since my last visit" link at the top right corner, under "help" and above "Topics Messages Last Message" in the blue bar. Then I skim thru', depending on how many pages there are.

    I hardly every sign out - so I never knew about that until now!

    Gotta sign out and sign back in for that to work.

    When I first joined I had looked quite a few pages back and found a picture of a quilt called Cathy's Big Cats. When I responded to it, several others did as well, and it was like it was new again. Lately I go back about 2 or 3 pages.

    e like to be notified when there are new messages to threads I am interested in, so I try to catch up on comments. Repetition helps me remember. I try to keep up, but sometimes I am out of the loop. I do use recent topics, but I look at chit-chat also. I like pictures, too. I guess I go where my interest takes me. I don't always reply, but often do because I see how often people look but don't comment. I live alone, and this is my company!
