All of a sudden today the Active List settings have changed. No matter what I do the options at the bottom of the page revert to MsgCount, Ascending, Last 10 Posts.
Am I alone in experiencing this problem?
Ok ... there are now no posts with no replies.. can we have our old Active List sort order back please?
> active list
ya, there were alot of unanswered messages. Several hundred unanswered in the last few months. We had many comments from users about it.
We do the active list switch about once a year to encourage folks to help out with the active list.
What else can we do to encourange folks to help post and get some of the orphans answered?
- a constant roll through the forums - every day or hour one forum gets one- & two-post threads pinned to the active list.
- a random selection of n orphans and put them in a blue box at the top and call them "sponsored threads".
every refresh you would see new orphans.
increase or decrease n according to need.
maybe some weighting so that one or two older orphans are always there.
- adjustable periods so that things can hang for a day or two during weekends and holidays but encourage more activity during "business hours".
