|As you may have noticed there is no All Messages list in reverse chronological order like there was on the old Ex Playboy Bunnies message board.
But there are various ways to view the latest messages posted on this new forum.
The forum keeps a track of what you've read, and if any individual forum has been added it will have the orange paper logo instead of the grey paper logo.
= New posts
= No new posts
Another way to check for new messages since your last visit is the link at the top of the page when you log in. If you look on the right at the top there is a text link that says View posts since last visit. Clicking this link will show recent posts.
Another (optional) way to keep a track of new messages in an individual topic is to click the Watch this topic for replies text link. (Located at the bottom of the topic on the left.) The forum will then email you when anything new has been posted in that particular topic.
Furthermore, when a new topic is started, or an old topic is replied to, it moves to the top of the individual forum. Latest active Topics (within individual forums) jump to the top, so the order of topics changes based on activity. Regularly replied to posts will be near the top and the newest Topics will go to the top. This will become clearer the more these forums are used.
Finally, on the right of the forum lists, clicking on this little logo under the Last Post column will take you directly to the last (most recent) post in that forum.
The structure for the forums is:
Index of All Forums -> Individual Forums (e.g. "Los Angeles Playboy Club") -> Topic within that forum (e.g. "Looking for Bunny friends from 1969-1973")
Although of course these are only examples, the names will differ depending on what forum and topic you are browsing.
Hope that makes sense. You post a new Topic in an individual forum. You can reply to other people's topics (and any you started yourself).
The main Miscellaneous Messages forum under the main "Playboy Clubs" category is really the best place for general posts. All Bunnywide announcements should be made there.
The individual club forums should be unique for each club.
