Actually, I used All Forums, which took me out of Animal Safari. What I didn't do is switch the time frames, so I was only looking at what happened in the last week.
Feet of clay here, folks.

It takes a while, Sweetie. Feel free to ask me or 'most anyone for help. (I still haven't figured out the Search Options, myself.)

I hope there is no way my earlier post can be construed as 'pouncing' on anyone, least of all inhospitably - just a simple invite to look at some other comments offered to date, with a clear acknowledgment that no such discussion can ever be the "last word".

Hi Maverick

No offense taken by me. All is well.

I was glad to read the other discussion, though there seems to be some glitch that makes it impossible to look at the entire thread. When I click on "show all" or page 2 or 3, the thread changes entirely. But I did get to read the first page at least.

Never a dull moment.

Take care,
Dawn

There's a trick to being able to read the entire thread, Dawn, but I forget what it is. Someone will tell you, I'm sure.

From the FAQ:

Becoming Unthreaded

When accessing old thread you might find that you can only view them in threaded mode, once you get past
page 1 of flat mode they seem to cross-link to other threads. I tend to find this a little disconcerting but it
seems to be part of the amusement of the board.

This is exactly what's happening with the link maverick gave me. This time it cross-linked to a thread on undecorate. Glad to know it's not just me. Whew!

Thanks Father Steve.

re:once you get past page 1 of flat mode they seem to cross-link to other threads.

which is why we old timers set up our preferences to veiw 99 post per page, so all the post are one one page..
for the same reason, thread are deliberately ended (and sometime have a part 2 or 3)at 98 post (original and 98 replies/etc=99)...

you can set your preferences to 99 and zip through long threads, and not have to 'reload pages as you read thread that got long when you weren't looking.
