    So many games!!

    The name of this board is Quilting Board. There are way to many games to scroll thru to get to quilting topics. Can you put these in a category that will not show up on the daily Whats New? feed?

    Instead of entering the QB via What's New, try using this ...
    https://www.quiltingboard.com/sitemap/

    All nicely sorted according to the forum/topic categories.
    Most recent newly-started thread is 1st, and drops down as new ones are added.

    Once you post to a thread or subscrib to it, you get email notices
    when a new post is made to that thread.
    (Best to check your settings that you will get those notices.)

    ............. and you will never have to look at another game thread/post again!

    I agree. I usually click on Recent Topics and get the same thing.

    Are they getting any closer to getting the daily digest back up and running? I'm getting tired of sorting through all of this. Thankfully, the ones I've read are highlighted. And, yes, needs to be another category for the games. Are we getting bored? Winter drones on but I am getting quilts together--some for me and some for donation. It's not all bad, you know!

    I agree about the Daily Digest. It looks like it's in my email each day, but when I click to open, it's just blank. Maybe it's a way to do without the Digest. I know we're encouraged to go at it another way, and since this is a free site, it's probably not a big priority to get the Digest going again. IMHO

    I realize there are other ways in but the Daily Digest was so handy. Click on, you're in & can just go through or go deeper if you want to. I agree about the games. I don't check deeper into gen. chit chat because of the games.

    I also agree. It is a quilting board, not a game board.

    About a week ago I asked about the rationale for making or allowing this change in our easy access. No response. I would understand if it was explained. There may be things going on behind the scenes that we are not aware of, but the "one click and in" for the Daily Digest was terrific. It still works for pictures and other areas, just not for our daily dose of info and chat.

    I find I spend less time on the quilting board due to a multpitude of reasons. I have a rural internet connection and with the many advertisements that pop up all over the page taking time to load it really slows down my viewing. The need to "accept" the terms and conditions every single time I log on as well as the many threads that are not quilting/recipe related cluttering up the "What's New" feed, I just get tired of finding my way to what's of interest. I recognize that our "free" membership comes at a cost of seeing advertising, but it's everywhere - top, bottom, middle and sides of the page. Sometimes a video window pops up mid page as well. I just don't have the patience to wade through all of this just to find what is of interest.

    I use AdBlockPlus, a free ad blocker and I don't get any ads. As for accepting the terms, I check the box to keep me signed in and I get right in every time without a password or acceptance.

    Needing to accept terms when you log in is just one extra click/tap. I don’t find it a big deal. I do what QuiltnNan does but when I clear my cache, which I do each night I lose the saved sign in and have to log in again. First world problems.
