Nah, that's the same way I do it.  I only ever check "Unread posts" and "New replies" after I've already done that, just to see if I've missed anything.  I usually haven't.

When I click the "Mark all messages as read" link by mistake, it's usually because I was aiming for the "Personal Messages" link to check if I have any new personal messages.  Nope.  Still just that one from KurtPikachu from 2011.

Wow, this whole conversation makes me wonder if my method of browsing PEEL--just indiscriminately clicking on those sub-forums and threads that are showing new posts, all willy-nilly--is somehow flawed.


Yes. You're bad, and you should feel bad:

  • Click the "Unread posts since last visit" link.*
  • Watch the list of links to unread posts populate the page.
  • Middle-click each link in the list, top-to-bottom.
  • Watch each middle-clicked link open its own new tab.
  • F5 to reload the page, showing any new posts since you clicked the links.
  • Middle-click any new links which show up, F5, repeat as necessary.
  • CTRL-TAB to the first one.
  • Read new posts on the page.
  • Close the page you're reading, using your fave method (CTRL-W, ALT-F4, hunt for and click the little "X", or my fave: middle-click the tab to close it.

Using this method, all the tabs are loading in the background while you're still reading the first one. Ergo, NO WAITING for the next link to load before you read it! Easy. Peasy. Clearly superior.


*I actually middle-click the unread posts link, creating the lists of posts in an adjacent tab, saving the main page for hitting F5 to reload on occasion.

Ah, that may very well be a valid PEEL-perusing technique, but it assumes the majority of my browsing is done on a laptop, when in fact Iím almost always on my phone like the obnoxious millennial I am. :p

Understandable.  Still have to look at examples...etc.  I'll see what I can.

The 'chat' link in the top button bar (in-between 'profile' and 'logout') doesn't appear to function.. should the button be removed?

Much of New PEEL doesn't really work at the moment. We still don't even have a "post" button! I blame Steve Jobs.

It would be kind of hilarious to have the 'chat' link point to a Futurama chatbot. All the dialog is already in fairly-well-formatted text (I'm thinking of the morbotron site). Something to put on the to-do list..

Even in my hour of failure, Steve Jobs steals my spotlight.

"Damn you, Steve Jobs!"

Well, to be pedantic we do have a post button, it's just not labeled at the moment.

I know jack-all about coding for webservers, but if there's some way that I can help by adding missing labels when I have time here and there, and it's not more effort to teach me than it would be to do the work directly, I'm willing to assist. Sign me up.

If it's still an SMF package, then it's written in PHP, but there are admin editing pages where you label various variables without knowing how to code.  How I know this is beyond me, since my secret avatar editing page was different from my invisible admin editing page, which I certainly didn't secretly have for secret for real, this is definitely the truth for reals this time, super cereal, I promise for reals.

Does anyone know which one of the unlabeled buttons is the "show signature" button?  I suppose that it's not really that important, but it would be nice to be able to tell people how to speak and what to drive again.

It's the last one, on the lower left.

Or maybe not, I have admin view?  I just tried to cheat by inspecting the element in the browser, looking for "check_sig".

Should I lurk and read more, or may I ask how svip went about updating peel?

Why are winna's posts always with 6s when I log out?
