When viewing 'todays active topics' it listed the last poster in the thread as well as original poster.
It was really handy to see who had posted last, why has this changed?
This might have been partly my suggestion!
I mentioned elsewhere that when you clicked on "Todays active topics" it listed each topic everytime it was added to.
EG if 14 people replied to a topic "Mic A is crap", it appears 14 times in the "Todays active topics".
I think if it just showed it once it would mean that people who aren't interested in Mac A's quality only scroll past it once, and those who are interested in that topic will probably want to see all 14 posts anyway!
Also, with the Musician's Lounge forum, it might be possible that the 200 slots available when you press "Today's Active Topics" might get very full quickly.
Other forums I use have a "new posts" button which does this sort of thing.
Just an idea- if it works grand, if it doesn't no big deal.
