How do I view "General Chat" postings when clicking "Recent Posts"?

I use to be able to view in the past!

Hi bigdog, for the moment you cannot view General Chat threads in either "New Posts" or "Recent Posts" searches. This change was made in an attempt to return the focus of ASF to the stock market, trading and investing. To view these threads you must go into the General Chat forum.

However, it is my intention to make it possible for ASF members who would like to view General Chat threads in their "New Posts" searches to be able to do so. I expect that this will be through an option in their account preferences that can be enabled and disabled at will. However, this feature will not be implemented until ASF upgrades to a new version of this forum software, which should occur in the next few months.

I will keep the community updated regarding any developments.

The "general chat" forum tread sort date sequence has a problem

Currently not in date descending sequence
-- meant to be last post first

Hi bigdog, the top four threads are sticky or pinned threads, and can be identified by the pin icon.

The threads under that are all listed according to the last time a new post was added. See the "last post" column on the far right of your screenshot. The dates under the thread titles are the dates the threads were first created.

This is the correct thread ordering, unless I am misunderstanding your question.

G'day @Joe Blow, How does one go about calling it a day on the forum? Can you make me disappear like I never existed

Hey @frugal.rock, I'm with @qldfrog on this one. I also enjoy reading your posts, just look at your stats...

Thanks Frog & Skate.
Please see cut and paste.
"G'day Joe,

Can I claim a fugue state of condition for last night ?
Overstressed about life... lack of sleep doesn't help.
The forum is actually a good distraction for me, yesterday was just a bad day.
Apologies for inconvenience and I would like to withdraw the request.
Thanks Joe."

Anyway, couldn't leave without paying my dues on the Z1P/AFT guessing game thread...:oops:

No need to worry FR … I am going to win that comp anyway … and I will be happy to donate my winnings back to the "instigator" … slash You!:p;)

Interestingly, I appreciate your initial question to @Joe Blow …… Being on a Forum when you are trying to be 'yourself' yet often other punters don't understand your 'personality' … and sometimes may even give you crap, when, if they knew you in real life, they would probably 'not do that!' …. and if they did, they are likely not worth communicating with anyway ….

Irrespective of whether you follow through with your initial scenario, please PM me with your future contact details because you are one of the people (and there are a few!) around here who I would be happy to keep in contact with in the 'outside world'

I'm sorry that what ever has eventuated to make you feel that way … has eventuated:( .… And I bet I'm not alone with that assessment ….

PS … If you were just beating yourself up over a bad period of trading and a lack of compassion in that regard …. let me alleviate your pain … I will bet you London to a brick I've done worse! … and look I'm still smiling:couchpotato::smug::shame:

Cheers M8.
