    Yep, I forget what it was about but it wasn't to long ago that I go to "recent topics" and I know I was just there and then, it's gone! I"m still sorta new to being here and haven't figured it all out yet but learning every day.

    Yeah, there's some weird things that go on sometimes. Also if Admin or one of the moderators have pulled or locked a topic it's that way everywhere.

    I believe that Recent Topics are the topics that have most recently been commented on.

    There is a link at the top here that says Topic Log. It records all the topics you have looked at today. You an click on that link and see anything you have been reading. When you click on a topic on Recent Topics it won't show up again on that list until someone else posts on that topic.

    recent topics means topics that someone has recently posted on as in a new post that you haven't seen yet. Once you have seen the post on that thread it is no longer a recent topic to you until someone posts a new post that you haven't read yet. make sense?

    When I first joined the board in mar 09 there was a list of topics that were the most viewed. This was on the home page. As time went on it was changed into the recent topics page. It has the same purpose as most viewed. But the newer links were slanted to an individual use. so the recent topics became the most viewed topics and he added the new post feature that makes it a list of new posts you haven't read yet.

    follow the way it progressed? so as soon as you have read it then you can find it again in your Topic Log which is now a personal log for each user seperating the recent topics from the personal log. confused you yet?

    This is my understanding of the way it works. Topic log keeps track of the ones you have visited.

    I have found that by only looking at the Recent Topics, I am missing things. So I kinda vacillate between trying to look at all topics (for the day) and only recent topics.
