As Marcia mentions here [webmasterworld.com...] this is a topic worth mentioning ;)

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? :)

1. I have the "Active post list" (= recent posts) in my favorites and press F5 more often than the automatic refresh.

2. Use my own recent threads for finding back older recent discussions.

3. The odd flags for older reference material

4. Google as search within WebmasterWorld, even though Googleguy does an awful job in indexing the WebmasterWorld threads ;)

5. I check on some peoples profiles if they recently posted in some discussion I did not follow.

I use the custom HTML menu option to put links to my favorite topics/forum categories on every page.

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!
