Why Is There A Limit Again On Recent Discussions In The Community Forum

Why is there a limit again on recent discussions listed in the community forum again? If I'm away for a few days the posts just scroll past the end and they seem lost forever. Am I missing something?

Hey guys,

I didn't realize this was bugging people! We figured that with the ability to see ALL posts through the search button, people would use that if they wanted to see more than just the last few updated posts. It does also work in chronological order, by the way. So if you just do a blank search without tags, you can page back that way.

Thanks for the feedback guys. :)
Simply press the Search Button

You will be presented with every post in chronological order.

The home page of the Community section will not contain pagination or drop down to adjust the number of items because it will affect the layout of the page. The Search Button is your friend:)
Eventually I would really like to see the ability to jump to the first unread post in each thread, fillow/subscribe to specific threads, and jave a "catch up" type function that indicates I have read everything up to that time. These are common features in the big 3 forum players, vBulliten, PHPboard, and Vibe, and I use then regularly in the forums I participate in (although don't take any other hints from Vibe - - of the three, it is the worst).

While making suggestions, I would also love to see private messaging. (with enough control so if you don't want private messages you can block them, or just block from individuals if you get irritating messages). Again, common in the big three, and something I use often.

@Dave. , the Web Mistress.... awesome hacker/cracker nickname. I know what her costume theme will be at the halloween office party this year.:D

Also no offense Chrissi:)
I'm also more used to the "traditional" forum style. I like browsing the sections that are related to the topic I'm trying to get mu head around. An evening of browsing through posts often leaves me with lots of new insights and info that I comes of use later on. It would be a real improvement (at least to me), if it were possible to be able to choose a classic forum style.
@micropuller, you can always click the tag on the forum main page to browse by tag:)
