Hi Sheila

I generally shy away from Internet bulletin boards as I have always wondered about their efficacy. I have no such reservations about KneeGeeks. It has been one of the best opportunities for me to find information, connect with like-minded people and in general have a bit of fun in the Games section. Thank you for creating the best knee site around. It is not an easy thing to try to keep everyone happy. I think that the way in which you have approached this dilemma says a great deal about you and the site. Thank you again for your efforts.

Like many others I have gotten tired of always having to go through the game threads when I look at
"show unread post since last visit".
Also the postop threads keep going way too long and in end the only are a social conversation taking up space.
Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.

When you click on the Unread posts short-cut it will always return all of the posts made since your last visit in the time order that they were posted, so the physical position of a particular Board is irrelevant really. The filter used is based on the time of your last registered log-in and the time you request the information.

Every time I carry out this action I look first at the title of any new thread, then the board it is from, if neither interest me or I feel that I am not able to offer any constructive comment, I do not look at it. After reading all the posts that interest me I go back and mark all the others as read. Using the multiple tabbing that is available in most Browsers these days, this is not really a problem.

Unless a complicated filter system using unbelievably complex and personally chosen parameters is introduced this is the simplest and easiest of methods of checking new posts. If you want this kind of functionality, then I would advise using the search parameters. Me, I like to keep life simple at all times.

I agree with Kaputt Knee in that the titles of threads can be an eye catcher. I'm more apt to respond to a thread if the title gives an idea of the problem then just saying "I'm in pain, so much pain or Knee problems" We all have pain and knee problems so this doesn't help us to know if their knee problem is something we can give them advice on as everyone is different. There are so many people posting that I know myself that I'm more apt to answer a post with a catchy title. Would you read a book where you didn't like the title. Maybe there should be a Newbie section that would give them ideas on how to post to be more assured of getting their posts answered.

I pretty much do the same thing as Kaputt Knee when it comes to reading posts, but in addition, I look to see how many responses the person posting has gotten. I tend to go for the ones that have a low number, and will respond to those first, but only if it's an area in which I have experience. I'm a 'frequent flyer' here, so I don't usually have more than 2 or 3 pages of unread posts to catch up on, but I do try to check all the pages, not just the first. If I've been away for a while, though, I usually stop when I get to posts that are more than a few days old.

I do think it would be good to separate out the games room posts. Do any of us really need to know who posted something new to a game we're not involved in?

Me, too. I thought it was meant to be funny.

Hey gang, know what? This thread could get moved and be the first one in the new 'Popular Discussions' board. What do you think, Sheila?

Luckygrandma,

It was just one little joke. The more fuss that is made over it, the bigger issue it becomes. Let's just be mature about this and move on. I'm sure no one here meant to trivialize the issues that are being discussed.
My suggestion of moving the thread to the new board was made in all seriousness. This is becoming a popular thread. Lots of people have weighed in and there have been some very good suggestions. I think it would be an excellent start to the popular discussions board.
