new posts is great EXCEPT I do not want to see new posts in EVERY section...justa couple. That is how I personally...roll here. If there's a way to filter New Posts to show ONLY posts in particular sections...that would potentially be useful.

I thought it would be annoying too...but 95% (seriously) of the posts are from either Fire hydrant, general dog chat, or dog pictures...which I assume are the forums nearly everyone glances at.

The other occasional posts can be glossed over really easily if they're not of interest to you.

It took a little getting used to, as this is the only board I do it on, but after a day or two it was waaaaay simpler. PLUS! I don't have to scroll through a whole darn page of stickies that haven't been updated in months to get to the new posts. The stickies only show when they've been updated.

I think moving the dog stuff (since this is doh, a *dog* forum) to the top would be great!

Yup. LOL

I hope you'll put in a photography part, too. It's something we definitely are lacking right now.

Technically it's Dog Forum News... Not Dog news... News for the forum non-related to dogs seems to be in the right place if you ask me...

Anyways, I'd still prefer it at the top...

Sections to add?

I like the Announcements idea and the venting one... How about Ethics? Such as breeding and health related ethical questions?

I say put it wherever you feel it makes sense. I'm sure I can find it. My fingers can operate the scroll wheel on my mouse

I do worry when more and more new sections are added - I don't care where they are

I think too many cooks spoil the broth, and the hydrant is so active because it's all together.... I personally would miss 50% of the threads if they had a seperate section each, through the way that I browse.. I tend to use the new posts button, and check maybe 2 sections properly - one being the hydrant.

I know for a fact I'd miss threads because I don't have the time/energy to look in the seperate areas.

Call me lazy, but it is how I operate.
