Default Criteria for achiving new posts

Why are posts a few hours old , read but unanswered, removed when much older posts remain on the new post page?

Can't say I've noticed this Jim. Have you any examples of where this has happened? R-

Roger,
May I first apologise for Dropping the R in my post title. My query follows my own post today relating to the fitting of DCC to a Wrenn 4MT. I had hoped that someone had previously done this to the 4MT or a similar loco with the vertical motor.

No post are removed from the forum unless a moderator considers them inappropriate or they not related to a specific topic.
Posts made will move down the new posts list as more new posts are entered and only return to the top of the list if a new reply is made in that topic.
Your original post with no replies is still here... link to topic posted
This is no more than standard forum working!

Thanks for the clarification FB, I new the post was still on the forum but simply wondered what the criteria was for moving posts from what is probably the most viewed site page.

Just one question from me - when you have logged into the forum are you selecting the option that says "remember me"?

So what FB is saying Jim, is that there is no intervention by a Member or Moderator (other than that outlined) that moves a post down the list. It is just more posts arriving after it that move it down and eventually off the first "New Posts" page and onto a subsequent one. I think your post is in the right thread, it is probably just the a Member with the appropriate knowledge / experience has not seen it yet. It will however be on their "New Posts" page when they log in. Does that help? R-

hi Jim,

I've just looked at the 'new posts' page, and seen that there are 16 threads there. As i never use that page myself, my guess is that the page will always show the last 16 newly created threads. As each new topic is created, the 'eldest' new post becomes number 17, and drops off the new posts list.

If you want to keep an eye on your thread, you can 'subscribe' to it, meaning you'll get an email when it is replied to.

Regards

Steve

Unless I am using a link from a notification email, the "new post" page is the first port of call. It can show varying numbers of posts, from 0 if none have been updated or crested since your last visit to many. I'm not sure how many "new post" links can be shown on a single page but I'm guessing it us between 20-30

It shows the last threads that you haven't looked at.

The 'remember me' when you log on remembers your password that's all, I think.
