This is probably a DUMB question, but just what is the "Activity" tab?
one man's opinion..

Posted on 07/07/2011 5:27:34 PM PDT by ken5050

I've been around here well over a decade. Happily so. Usually when I logon to FR..I'll check my Freepmail first, then pings ( scroll down and click on those that interest me) , then Articles ( same as with pings)..Once in a while I'll click on "Commments." Just now, while attempting to eat AND FReep at the same time, I clicked on "Activity" by accident...

Needless to say, I am curious..like "what query?" Is there a user manual somewheres I should know about?

I think maybe it lists all of your posts and/or replies.
Or,

The activity button is deactivated. I believe it used to list the most active threads at the time searched. It went by the wayside when FR experienced one of its big crashes.

It tells you what FReepers are doing it while you browse the forums.

Hey guys, do not give him the answer.

If JimRob didn't Freepmail him the email we all got, then I guess he doesn't need to know.

Ahh, at one time Laz was quite sane - but then was taken for a "drive" - was actually rescued once (cost us a bundle), but now, alas, poor Laz....

Like the “Comments” tab shows most recent comments in descending order, the “Activity” tab shows (or once showed) threads with most recent comments or “activity” in descending order.

You’d use the “Activity” tab to view articles or threads that had been very recently commented upon. This would move threads that were no longer attracting response way on down the list. Whenever you see someone say “Bump!” or “BTTT” (bump to the top), this refers back to the knowledge that making a comment on a thread would put it on the top of the listing of active threads, and so people would post just to do that, because they approved of the thread, and wanted it to get more exposure and to be read.

Of course, people have no clue anymore. I’ve given up trying to get people to understand what a “ping” is, seems like they think it’s a “bump,” and are pinging people to their own threads, lol.

When jargon runs amok. No turning back now, even the FR buttons have turned on us, lol.

Next you’re going to ask why threads no longer show the number of views, or why “Anthrax Scare” is still listed as a Hot Topic when posting a News article.

You know, if you would have been at the last Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Meeting like you were supposed to you would know. I told you be there.

If you come to the next meeting you can look at the minutes from the last one, but don't come empty handed. I signed you up to bring the Rice Crispy Teats.

Don’t know about the “when” of it all. I tend to find interesting articles via the “comments” tab by replying to interesting comments before reading the article, like most all FReepers do. Keeps things interesting, gives it a sort of charming ADD ping-pong match effect.

But, I suspect it went away when the “views” counter went away, myself. Seems like the one would enable the other. I miss the views count. You could tell a great deal more about a given thread than just comments. Some articles got really bizarre view levels. You knew it was a hotbutton when the views took off like that.

But don’t forget—too much time spent under the “Comments” tab leads to posting duplicate threads . . . and posting duplicate threads leads to blindness.

How was it added? You just put somebody’s screen name in the “to” field and then write “Ping!”

Unless, of course, you mean bump but don’t know bump from brillo, at which point you ping the OP to his or her own thread, lol.

Never, ever, under any circumstance, FReep and eat at the same time. Who knows WHAT could happen.

Doh! Flied Lice is the worst! Actually, liverworst is the worst, but that’s German food...

The only thing worse than FReeping and eating is FReeping and drinking when someone posts Helen What’shername’s face on the screen. Time for a new keyboard and monitor.
