As with the old website style, I would like to have the ability to see all threads with new posts while being able to mentally decide whether or not to pay attention to a thread because of the forum in which it is located.
    Agree with this.

    I never even noticed that A button. That opened a whole new world for me on this site. Thank you.

    Thanks. I appreciate it because I'm a speed reader when it comes to many PN posts.

    How did you embed the Twitter link? That looks good.

    I didn't like the 30 second rule either but it never seemed to be as intrusive as this 15 second one is.

    I can live with it, without question. I'm just used to site without these limits, so it's a "me" issue when I'm on here.

    The 15 second timer is just to help fight off the bad guys from doing bad things. The longer it is the harder it is for them to use it for bad purposes. It's always been there. It was actually 30 seconds for a long time.

    So the 15 seconds starts when the New Topics loads and you can't click New Topics again until the timer is done. So when you load New Topics timer starts, find a thread, click thread, read that thread, and click back to New Topics. What's a good non-intrusive amount of time that would take?

    I bookmark New Topics. So I start on that page. New Topics is always showing under Forums if you are logged in. I click a thread, then click New Topics in the header, click a thread, click New Topics. Where does the 15 second wait and multiple clicks come from?

    Or are you saying you spend 0 seconds reading the thread so you are immediately back on New Topics and hitting the limit?

    Or are you on mobile? I'll try that scenario on mobile.

    Agreed 100%
