There's also the all-important search engine if you're looking to find specific information on something. Chances are we've discussed it all sometime in the past.

In response to a support mail I am publishing my comments here.

I find the discussions a bit counter intuitive the most recent posts are at the end, and the new post box is also there. You have to trawl through everything to get to it. As time progresses so post hunting becomes somewhat archaeological. Perhaps you could suggest the devs make it possible to order by most recent post and to thread discussions?

I have my preferences set to show only 10 new posts in a category and just one previous unread post. That works well for me, and I find it cleaner and easier housekeeping than other types of discussion websites. I think once you have visited most of the categories (so that you have unread and read posts) and set your preferences the way you like it, that it will be very efficient.

There's quite a lot of customisation available, for instance you can hide Topics that are not of any interest to you, also sort them by name, category or posting date.

You can also use the search bar if there is something specific you are looking for.

I know I am extremely sleep deprived, I may also be extremely dense, but how do I simply edit a post that I made?

If it is within 15 minutes of making the original post, you can click the thing at the top of the post which looks like a wheel. That will bring up four more icons including one which looks like a pencil.

If it is beyond 15 minutes, you may need to just post an amendment in a new post, or, in the event of some kind of deeply embarrassing drunk post, call a favor on one of the hosts to edit for you.

Ha, it's just typos and bad grammar. Nothing scandalous, unfortunately. I'll save my favors for a true Anthony Wiener moment.
