Is there any way to adjust this time? I've been through the user cp but didn't see any option. Thanks
I approach reading the forums this way. I have threads I regularly look for, my own being one of course. I scan the Banned Users out of morbid curiousity, however, if there are technical questions or requests or a post to my Tempest thread I can absolutely wait a bit. Each week, when the update email comes I go through it and answer what I want to. To be honest, I go through at least three subforum directories looking and occasionally random stops and posts by those I know well. I'm guilty of replying to regions I don't live in, I'm not over 50 either but I dig everyone more or less.
A&S doesn't seem to bug me anymore.
You don't have to read everything. Subscribing to the topics you like in daily or weekly digested form is actually a good way to keep track of them. "For Sale/Trade", "eBay/Craigslist" and "Pay It Forward" are things to digest daily.
Especially if you're not me and all over it anyway.
PS Are there actually TWO Pay It Forwards? That's sort of confusing...
Thanks for posting.
