Did you know i added a link so you can view all the threads on the forum which no one has replied to yet?
http://www.donationcoder....ndex.php?action=unreplied

It's a great way to see if there is a lonely thread needing some reply love.

Nice.

There are a few "Topic Moved" posts that do not belong in the list.

Page 49 = 20 posts, 19 from mouser
Page 48 = 40 posts, 35 from mouser
page 47 = 40 posts, 33 from mouser
page 46 = 40 posts, 19 from mouser
page 45 = 40 posts, 19 from mouser
page 42 = 40 posts, 22 from mouser
page 43 = 40 posts, 25 from mouser
page 42 = 40 posts, 15 from mouser
page 41 = 40 posts, 23 from mouser
page 40 = 40 posts, 24 from mouser

Now, if that's a trend and if mouser could reply some of them...  Grin

As this forum's most prolific poster, it's only natural that mouser will have the most threads in need of reply love.

But yeah, I'll spread some...starting from oldest and working my way forward. I figure the oldest threads have been deprived the most, and not likely to get any attention from the masses, so they deserve the reply love, more.

Let us not get carried away reviving old threads just for the sake of it..

If there is an old post that still needs a reply, then yes -- but don't take my whining about lonely posts to mean that every year old post needs a reply.

A post is only lonely if it was a question that went unanswered or something that deserves a follow up.

Yeah, I just gave up on it because:

1. It's exhausting!
2. I was reading through posts to find stuff worth replying to and wound up basically replying to say "thanks" for stuff that is three years old

Anyway, it's a nice idea. Probably more sensible to start with the RECENT posts that haven't been replied to yet. At least they'll still be topical.

That was why I skipped all those older ones and started with the one about the links page...since that DOES need attention....and it's still a great page that is worth looking at that maybe a lot of people haven't bothered to visit before. (either I never went there before today, or the page changed a lot since I joined and I never noticed)

Good thinking! I've bookmarked the Lonely Posts page, though, and will trawl through it occasionally looking for forgotten gems that await replies.

You don't actually have to bookmark it, you can find it on the top bar:

Smarty-pants! I didn't even think to look up there... Thanks for the tip - that's even easier than using a bookmark/favourite  Thmbsup
