    I ended that my second day here after I got 50 new messages from Civfanatics alone.

    I posted in this thread???? :mischief:

    I had never heard that phrase before either, but from googling I am guessing it means a thread that has 'risen from the dead' (a thread that hasn't had a post in months/years, and then suddenly someone posts in it, bringing it back to page 1).

    It happens fairly frequently that I will see the "posted in" dot on the icon and have minimal recollection of what I posted about, sometimes even if the title is vague, I don't remember the discussion.

    I never look at black dots, but use the subscribed threads folder.
    If you forget what you did post in it: you shouldn't have posted in it:p .

    I just look at the black dot. The worst thing is that i forget what the thread is about and I post about something irrelavent.

    Most of the time I don't forget what I've posted in a thread. But it does of course happen now and then, especially with the old bumps, so I voted "Yes".

    Quite often (increasingly these days) I won't revisit a thread and reply because it would only mean posting "ok" or "fair enough" or "thanks for the response", because I don't have time, see it as a waste of time, think someone who has replied is being a troll/idiot, or because I simply can't be bothered.

    How do folk feel when their post doesn't get replied to? Do they assume the above?

    PS: The scrolling through a thread can be avoided by clicking on the "go to first new post" arrow by the thread title. Very handy that one.

    People don't reply to my posts anymore :(

    Yeah, and ditto for the subscriptions page in the CP, I don't use half the "handy" features on this forum.......

    No, subscribing puts it in the "subscribed threads" folder in your user cp. You can turn off the "email me when..." option.

    Yes, they're called the "Unit Creation Forums".

    I post and if it weren't for the "posted here already marker" or whatever it's called, I'd post and probably say the same thing.

    Most OT threads I remember posting in, as they have a habit of aggravating me. So they stick in my memory better.

    Either that, or I've made such a wonderfully logical, coherent, and compelling case for whatever the hell I'm talking about that they were awestruck and immediately agreed with me, but didn't say so because to do so would detract ever so slightly from the aura of my post.

    But mostly, what you said.
