Hey all, I'm over here on the left coast, and usually peruse the forums about 10PM PDT/PST (depending on season).

I would really like if the getdaily page had a link to 'View today & yesterday's topics' or view 'Topics active in the last 24 hours'.

It is a big time saver using getdaily, if I get to it before 9PM Pacific. Sadly, this is not usually the case!

You know, I live on the east coast and I actually would find such a change useful as well. I second the motion.

I think this would be a great idea, but if you were going to do this why not go one step further. Could you guy add a page where we could view topics in every forum of a specified time range? It would be like a normal forum page with the selector on the top with "last x days" but all messages in all forums would appear instead of just the one forum.

A "View New Posts" option that would display a list of topics active since your last visit would be ideal. I've seen some forum software with that option, but I don't know if UBB would allow that.

Happy holidays!

The search function has convenient pull down menu options for since yesterday or last 5 days. This has served me well with midnight coming later here on the left coast.

However, i'd eagerely take a cookie that stored a message counter to make dates irrelevant, and show all active threads since my last visit.

taken under advisement.

That particular feature is one that has been discussed since we opened the Forums, and unfortunately, is nontrivial to program.

I will endeavor to learn more about cookies, and try to make something...
Thanks for your input!
