Setting for number of threads in active threads? (in General)

Flamey February 25 2008 12:19 AM EST

I'd like to see all threads that I haven't seen basically show up in the active threads list. Before the active threads list got the retheme it basically covered the past 24 hours, I'd like it back to this, but it isn't going to happen.

So, I propose have a setting that allows us to choose a number of threads showing in the active threads list. This would work much like the number of lines visible in chat. Two options, I think would suffice, one is the current one (which would be set to default) and the other would have more on it, I don't remember how many it used to have.

It is not just I that feels this way, bart also shares my thoughts, and I'm sure other people would like this as a setting at least. I don't think it would be very hard to implement?

Personally speaking it's not really an issue for me. I just click on "more" at the top of the page to view the last 20 thread topics whenever I've been afk for a few hours.

I think he means he wants more than the past 20 topics.

Flamey February 25 2008 7:00 AM EST

yeah, more than the past 20 :/

Well, if we do go that route I'd like to see the time stamp included and not just the date.

Actually, I'd like to see the time stamp regardless :)

I just click on "Forums" and get whatever fits. But I'd dearly love to have the timestamp back.

There's usually about 12.5 hours between when I leave home to go to work and when I come home again. That loss of about 3 hours BA is why my PR dropped to 10th place :( but this also means that there usually are more than 20 active threads during the time I'm away from CB. A "more" button under Recent Threads would be nice.

And yes, please bring back the

I think you should go for a cheaper car and get a phone that allows you to play CB Bart. It's all about priorities ;)

I already have a laptop with a built-in UMTS modem, so I can access the Internet everywhere I want. But, this does not mean I'm supposed to play a game while in the office or have time for it...

You don't get any breaks at all? *smile* It takes about 90 seconds to burn off several hours worth of BA accrual... dang, you must be one great employee! No wonder you get a car! *grin* G_Beee, with his employer getting him a car, I think Bart has his priorities in exactly the right place!

I'll fiftieth the timestamp coming back ^_^

I've been working on a way to make it look necessitous, but only thing I've been able to come up with so far is that it's kinda hard to tell how old the forums are when you're playing just after midnight, and it's nice to see a trend in replies (hmm... 50 in the first hour, three in the next 12 hours... Thread's losing steam...) :P

OOOHH!!! Just thought of it as I was confirming. "Sale ends when thread closes" When did the thread start? Is it over at 2am or 11pm? Just says it'll be over sometime tomorow =/

And about priorities:

A while back, I couldn't breathe well at all (felt like having an asthma attack and a panic attack at the same time a 500 lb man was sitting on my chest...), I needed to go to the hospital and I still had over 120 BA while I was forging Calynne's MsK... Not wanting to fall too far behind if they kept me (which they did... for two days!), I sat there and put 5 more cycles on the bow before getting in the car.

As far as bart's priorities: He's the third highest character with Battles challenged in all of CB. Had you not sold Lorenzo, or had dpc not been a forger, he would likely be fourth :P All the same, his BA is well spent (the other two guys ahead of him are Hell Blenders, can't expect anything but the best from them ;).

Didn't I start a big petition to get the timestamps put back? And wasn't the petition accepted, and the change reverted? When did timestamps get stupid again?

QBOddBird February 25 2008 3:34 PM EST

When did the timestamps come back? I don't remember that, though I think I remember the petition...

Either way, they're not here now, and I want them back too. T-T

QBsutekh137 February 25 2008 5:00 PM EST

I believe they disappeared again during the CSS/Facebook facelift... I thought they had come back too, and agree they need to be there.

TheHatchetman February 25 2008 7:17 PM EST

'twas first noticed on October 16th... And I like to think I had a helping and in getting them back for CMs at least :P
