Posts in the chat forum do not show in Recent Topics

Postby dhedberg » Wed Jun 19, 2019 8:56 pm

Hi,

Just realized that posts in the chat forums, e.g., Chat forum [ENG], are not listed under Recent Topics on the front-page of Atari-Forum. Why is this? Considering the low number of replies to those posts I think most people miss them, just like me.

In my opinion it is for reasons of thematic coherence, that is to say: in a chat with a general theme you can discuss the favorite beer, the football team, politics, pets, etc; It is not very aesthetic that in an Atari forum the first posts are dedicated to off-topic themes.
I insist, this is just my opinion.

Why not use "Unread posts" instead? They do show in that list. :)

I noticed that too when posting about the Tetra, that doesn't fit in professionals (since it's valuation) and I guess it's missed by lot of people (who's using the forum as me).

There's no general Atari (chat) forum. I had an Atari related post that I had to post in the chat forum because of that.
