    First I'd like to say this is my favorite board that I visit for insight on how to handle my credit woes. Thanks everyone! Here's hoping nobody will mind if a newbie makes a couple of suggestions...

    It takes a while to get through all the posts on this board and I wonder if there might be more responses to people's questions if there was a quicker way to see what has been posted. What I mean is I've noticed that there are very few responses to questions that were posted more than a day or two ago.

    Right now we can view the boards as threaded or unthreaded. Any chance something is in the works for viewing collapsed threads? It would be really nice to be able to view only the orginal post (with responses out of sight) and have "new" next to it to indicate it's a new thread and/or a new reponse has been posted to that thread.

    Another thing that would be nice is to be able to click on the "new" posted response and have that particular post show up on the screen without having to scroll down through all the previous responses.

    Something else that might make this easier, atleast for viewing the first post in a thread would be to have the title attributes on the href. Have the value be the first post. This would only work in IE but its a start for those of us cool people who us IE lol jes kidding.

    I don't know what you see on your screen, but I have a big red NEW next to any new posts that appear when I sign on. I simply click older until I get to a point wher ethe new posts stop.

    If you want to just see the original post and then skip to the next post, just click on a post... read it (without scrolling down for the responses) and then hit NEXT TOPIC on the right side above the post. I will take you to the next one.

    I LOVE the way this board is now. I don't have to click on the post... and click back to get to the response, then back, then lick for next reponse, then click back... you get my drift. I like that I can just simply scroll down and all the responses are right there.

    I like this format, too. It works really well when you're using speech to get around the screen. I can just let my synthesizer start reading the posts in a particular thread and I also have the option of hitting a key to stop when I've heard enough. This saves me from having to move the cursor up and down the screen so much.

    Oh well ...

    Good grief. Make a suggestion and people get all sensitive and defensive. I like this board too else I wouldn't keep coming back to it. Just thought collapsing the threads would make for faster reading but forget I suggested anything. I'll go back to lurking.

    Hey Linda,

    Don't worry about the comments. I get tired of scrolling through old posts (unthreaded) to get to the new message. If I go away and come back and see there's 12 new messages, I don't even BOTHER looking at it.

    I think you had some valid suggestions. And if you want to just lurk, that's fine, but feel free to ask/comment all you want. A few people get testy, but hey, can't please everybody all the time.

    Dear Shantel,

    Thanks, I appreciate your response and of course you're right. It's just that I see so many people's questions, including most of mine, go unanswered and I was thinking it may be that a lot of them are just getting lost amongst so many other posts. I'm really serious about getting my credit cleaned up so I suppose the best thing to do is keep on asking questions and just hope they get answered. So, consider me un-lurked. P.S. - Did I mention I like this board? :)
