  • Question

  • I am generally supporting in Windows XP IT Pro Forums
    But obviously there are many other forums and replies going on elsewhere across Technet forums
    Is there a link to show me all the new posts coming in live, on all forums? Similar to this forum: http://www.techspot.com/vb/newtoday.html (Also Neowin.net forums has an excellent example, but you need to be logged in to see it)
    Otherwise, I have to manually leave the Technet forum I'm on, then go to the next Technet forum and check there too

    Also, even though I'm all setup for receiving reply emails in my email client (and I do get all reply emails)
    Often the reply emails take up to half an hour to actually get to my email (luckily I check the forum manually, else the OP may have thought that I was ignoring him/her or something)
    The email replies to my email program is taking too long to come through (note its not on my side - confirmed by posting and receiving replies on other external forums)

    Do others find it difficult to read these forums? Maybe I'm just not use to it, but everything is a bit cluttered


    EDIT:

    Obviously me being new here, I am not asking the right questions or something?
    As on this thread and my only other thread, no one wants to reply
    Oh well I'll just continue helping others then and putting up with my issues, thanks for reading

  • Hi kimsland9,

    I am generally supporting in Windows XP IT Pro Forums
    But obviously there are many other forums and replies going on elsewhere across Technet forums
    Is there a link to show me all the new posts coming in live, on all forums? Similar to this forum: http://www.techspot.com/vb/newtoday.html (Also Neowin.net forums has an excellent example, but you need to be logged in to see it)

    If you enter a forums page there is a link just below the forums name "Add To My Forums". By clicking on that link you do as the link said. You can do this for as many forums you want.
    Then you can click on "My Forums Threads" to see all the threads of your selected forums.


    Also, even though I'm all setup for receiving reply emails in my email client (and I do get all reply emails)
    Often the reply emails take up to half an hour to actually get to my email (luckily I check the forum manually, else the OP may have thought that I was ignoring him/her or something)

    Thanks heslacher

    Also I get "Alerts" in my email, for posts that happen before mine ?
    I just (right now) got an alert for this post for the member's post before mine! Also note that he made this post 2Hrs and 40mins ago as well !!!

    So I hope Technet resolve this issue, as I never get immediate posts, they are always way later (still lucky I manually check all the time)
