    Question "An Active Topic"

    How do the forums of AntiOnline determine which topic is active (to be shown on the main page) and which not? I thought the ones last posted would be active, but when I just posted a message into the famous "Newbies read this first!" thread and returned to the main page, it wasn't there.

    JP did want to post the Newbie questions on the main page. You have to visit the forum.

    OK, thanks. I got it. A bit evil though.. It's not so easy to get answer to Newbie questions anymore... Well. Should we then move the Newbies-please-read-this -thread to AntiOnline General Chit Chat or something?

    Sure, sure, offload AAAAALLLL the responsibility to me :P

    I guess my rationale is that most of the stuff in the newbie forum is newbie stuff. (Whether most of the newbie stuff is within the newbie forum is a different matter )

    I rate this post of mine: "Less than worthwhile."

    Well I believe the newbie forum is only well new isnt it? Its never easy to get an answer in a newbie section because most people reading the threads are newbies too.
