Anyone out there know of articles on how to use this site most efficiently? I don't see any sort of FAQ or tutorials.

As an example, I noticed that there are a few guys on here that are very good at keeping up with many conversations, and I'd love to here your tricks.  It seems to be tricky to keep up on what's read and what's unread, for example.  I didn't see an option to customize the color or weight of visited links, nor does there appear to be an unread 'orb' - anything really.

Are you guys just on the site all day watching everything that closely, or are there ways you can customize the site?  Perhaps the 'My Page' or 'Activity' feed have some options that I haven't spotted?

I did look around the site quite a bit and didn't find a lot, but I may have missed something tucked away somwehere.

There isn't a trick that I know of.  Just remember where you're involved and check back.

Ah yes, and I suppose that does lend itself to a more involved experience as well, since it demands a certain amount of attention and focus.  Thanks.

That seems to be mainly for discussions that I've started, correct?  That definitely helps to keep track of conversations that I've started, but I'm curious what you've all found to be the best way to keep track of conversations that you're just following.  There's 2 different types of activity columns on 'My Page' and then there's the 'Main' page - and they all seem to be a bit different.  Trying to follow along with a discussion just by continuing to go back into it can take a lot of clicking, especially if it's lively with many pages of replies.

I'll keep experimenting.

On 'My Page' the 'Discussions' link (first block under profile pic) will list the discussions you have posted to not just the ones you create with the 'Last Reply' link to that discussion. 'Last Reply' will take you to the last reply although, it may not be on the last page. The Great Debate get's side-bars inside of side-bar sometimes - that's just part of the fun though.

Good tip, thanks Brian.

Christian Men

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
