    Yes, once a thread gets too long it is difficult to read 50 pages of posts. Breaking them into smaller thread allows those newer to a case to read current discussion and then go back to questions earlier in the discussion.

    If you take a look at some of the insanely fast moving hot cases here such as the Caylee or Haleigh forums they were on thread # 20 or so before they got their own forum. Breaking things up just makes them easier to read.

    I linked the first thread, so no one will lose it and have to search for it. The thread you have asked others to read is that link I added to the first post of this new thread.

    hth!

    Okay...thanks for the information. I guess I understand it. I just hope that people will know to go to the main thread to get the entire case history.

    What does that exactly mean? Bumping for Mattie and Patty...
    All I can see is get rid of the informaiton that has been posted. Is that "bumping?"

    SS1950,

    Bumping is something done to move a case to the top of the stack so people will see the case, and hopefully post to it. It has nothing to do with removing anything.

    Haven't seen this addressed anywhere else. I mostly view & post on here via cellphone, so it's kinda hard to navigate around to look for specific things.
    My question is, where on my profile can I get to a list that I can view of the threads I have posted on? When I click on "view parakeet's posts" or "view posts where parakeet received thanks", I get the message "sorry, you do not have priveledge to view this. Are you trying to alter someone's posts?"
    The problem is, I can't easily go back to my posts to see if I have any responses or questions for what I posted. So I have to remember where I posted, and look for it. Of course, the more I post the more difficult this will become.
    Is this specific only to my account? (Meaning my account has a bug) or am I missing something? (Which would be typical of me)
    Thanks!

    The fastest way is to click on your hat on any post and it should give you the option to view all your posts.
    Or you can go to your profile/hit statistics/view posts.
    If these things do not work for you, then you need to have more posts and this function becomes available to you after you become established.
    Hope that helps.
    Here is another place to ask questions as well.

    You need a min number of posts before all the features are available to you. Is there a particular case we can search for you and link here SoJerseyJohn? Also, my apologies for noticing your question so late.

    Are there guidelines for starting a new thread? I looked over the rules/etiquette and I didn't notice any mention of such, but I wanted to be sure before I posted anything. Specifically, there is a case in the news that isn't getting a lot of attention and I just wanted to start a thread here about it to see if there's any more info out there that I'm not finding... Is that OK to do?
