I'm a WebmasterWorld addict, and recent posts is my method of fix.
I have to admit I do not pay much attention to the forum that the thread is situated in...and little attention to the peoples' nicknames that actually post! Why? Information overload ;) I guess purely by reading the title (should be a good un) and the first initial posts I can get a "feel" for the thread.
Good way to go about it? (maybe i click too much on recent posts) ;)
It seems that the topics discussed nowadays overlap so much it would be difficult to "stamp" a mindset for each particular forum....and just reply to questions in the questions entirety- regardless of forum.
Anyone like me? Freelance WebmasterWorld'er - no forum home...just roaming the threads.
Is their a "preferred method" of finding what you need on here? :)
I first came over only checking 2 forums, then 3 and finally I saw the recent posts link. Now I am addicted to it. Thats all I veiw all day long. I dont pay alot of attention to the forum it is in but I do make sure I click on a certin few even if I am not sure what they are talking about or it doesnt sound good. I do recognize some of the names but I have a weird memory I remember all the unimportant stuff and none of the good stuff!
I tend to hit 'recent posts' ive never thought to add it to my faveroutes!, save brett abit of bandwidth on homepage so ill do it ;) I also try to keep track of posts ive posted in, again ive never thought to check my profile for my recent posts (thanks vitaplease for both tips!)......duh!
