Cliff: Good job!!!

What is the purpose of the "participation" column in the Forum? After all, we know the topics we selected to participate in and those will be the only ones we see. Right?

From a cynical stand-point, probably 60% of those posting will not bother to designate their participation and it will end-up as the default. Right?

On a different angle, there is no cookie posted automatically to the reply after making a reply.

Thanks

Dave F

Cliff,

I reckon there should be an "R" in Purchasing (Legends).

Regards,

Chris.

Thanks Dave,

The participation column under the listing by message date and by author is the forums (ie. SMT, Component, etc) that the message is participating in. When replying to a message, the message will have the same "forum participation" as the above message by default.

When starting a leading message, no forum is checked by default, so the poster must choose at that time what forum(s) that the message is involved in.

If any of the messages in the thread participate in any forum you are viewing, then you should see that thread.

I think I see the confusion from the name "participation" which is referring to the message and not your selections. We'll make that more clear somehow.

I am not sure what you mean about the cookie. The cookie has 2 functions, to determine who is returning (ie, cfid and token) and whether you accept cookies (sounds funny but it works).

Do you mean the visited link of the title of message?

Thanks, Cliff

OOOPS!

I must have looked at those words a gazillion times and never noticed it.

We'll have that changed asap.

Thanks, Cliff

Cliff: I'm talking about the "whatever-it-is" that changes the color of the thread I just posted to be the same color as thread from someone else that I just read, as opposed to the color of the thread someone else just posted, but I haven't read yet.

How's that for oblique?
