Which forum do you read first?

I have only been on here about a month so do not know if this has been asked recently.
I go straight to the "last hour" forums then find a subject I am interested in but not if there are more than 50 posts as it is too much to read all of them.
Do others have favourite posters or subjects that they go to first?

I read the "last hour" forums first too. Sometimes I read the last page first and if I'm interested I go back and read it through. I "watch" the threads sometimes so I keep up with what's going on.

I browse the last hour mostly and pick anything which may interest me,but over the past few months the topic's have held little or no interest for me, too many "games" threads and topics not as interesting as they used to be but that is purely my own opinion.

I look at the I'm on thread in case there is something I need to respond to and then the last hour but only if they have fewer than ten contributors or it is a topic I am interested in.I avoid the games and the political threads.

I always go onto the Good Morning Day of the week, which Mick starts for us each day. We talk about the weather in our part of the country and then say what we are doing that day and perhaps comment on what other folks are doing. It is very friendly and non political.

Usually the last day to start with as I miss things - I also pick things out of the daily e-mail which look interesting.

I just read the active ones. Too many games for me as well. I counted 12 the other day.

NfkDumpling Sat 11-Aug-18 21:59:30

I’m On, to catch up followed by Active to look for Mick’s Good Morning and then the few I’m Watching, unless I get sidetracked.

Chewbacca Sat 11-Aug-18 22:07:49

Straight to I'm On and then active posts.

BlueBelle Sat 11-Aug-18 22:16:51

Straight to active thread

BlueBelle Sat 11-Aug-18 22:18:24

Sorry that should say Active not thread

Marydoll Sat 11-Aug-18 22:32:03

I always go to: I'm on. However, I always go the: Good morning thread, first thing in the morning.

Active page is pinned to the start up on my phone.

sodapop if you look at the OP of a games thread in top right corner click the drop down icon and choose 'hide this discussion' you won't see it on the active page anymore.

Coolgran65 Sun 12-Aug-18 03:37:38

Thankyou. I've just been able to hide all the games threads 😀

Jane10 Sun 12-Aug-18 07:10:12

Great. I'll do that too. Thanks for the tip.

NfkDumpling Sun 12-Aug-18 07:29:56

Oh, thanks nina. I’ll do that too. I would like some of the games threads but my internet won’t keep up.

NfkDumpling Sun 12-Aug-18 07:41:41

I can’t find a drop down icon on my iPad. Is this just for proper computers?

charliebrown Sun 12-Aug-18 07:47:56

Can't find drop down icon on my laptop either

Greenfinch Sun 12-Aug-18 07:55:58

Not on my tablet either.

sodapop Sun 12-Aug-18 08:01:10

No I can't find it either Nina it would be useful.

Grammaretto Sun 12-Aug-18 08:02:54

I don't have these icons on my phone either. I only look at GN in bed or on the bus.smile
Active first and I'm on.
The long threads take so long to read.

Jane10 Sun 12-Aug-18 08:03:54

It's that wee sort of arrow pointing down at the top right hand side on the OP. I've just done it and it works!

Auntieflo Sun 12-Aug-18 08:10:24

I can't find a drop down icon on my Ipad either, can it be done, the hide thing, on an Ipad?

Greenfinch Sun 12-Aug-18 08:24:46

No arrow either.
