Hi Becky, There are email digests. You'll go to "edit my preferences" then "subscriptions & bookmarks". I have mine set up for a daily digest, so I get them around 6 am (MST) each morning. It's just one email, but it has updates to each conversation within it.

Thanks for jumping in.

I *really* miss my morning e-mails that I had subscribed to each board I was on that would tell me new posts/replied to posts.

I just got a message with some fixes they are doing. I do miss outline view too. I know loading time was one thing mentioned.

edit timestamp added to original message in a thread
center/alignment buttons added to Rich Text Editor (compose page)
added "in reply to: username" information to replies
removed original message of thread in subsequent pages of a multi-page discussion
added a link to your board profile under "quick links" (in upper right portion of the page)
enabled "jump to last unread message" as the default user setting
updated "mark all as read" to affect only the message board you're on
enabled "highlight" feature
fixed main underlying issue for board load time slowness

Hi Ang, Not Becky, but I'll add my tip...

I click on my name, then "view more" under posts. That shows me the threads I've participated in. In the column furthest to the right it shows how many new posts are in the thread. If you click on that number it brings you to the unread posts so you don't have to scroll through them all. I really like this feature.

Ang w/my 6th gr & 9th gr girls here & I miss the outline views. The boards seem to take longer to load & so far the bookmarks don't really work for me. Its a pain to scroll thru all the msgs to pick up where you last read.

Any tips to offer about navigating quickly

Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you all know that we are working to port over the old messages. I don't have a definite answer on this yet, but we know that the messages are important to you and we are working hard to make it work. I'm here if you have any questions!
