    There are now two new features here.

    First, in the list of threads, you will see a new "voices" column, which tells you how many different people's voices are included in the discussion.

    That may be especially helpful for figuring out when a discussion has one person who keeps posting "Anyone? Anyone?" on their own thread -- you will now be able to see only one voice has posted without responses, and you may seek out those threads to support the user.

    Also, there's a "hot topics" icon, which shows topics with more than five posts, which have been updated in the last four days. (Those filters can be tweaked if people have suggestions.) This will help you see which discussions are more active.

    They're small changes, but I hope this is useful!

    Also, a reminder: please select a "section" or forum category for every thread you start, using the dropdown menu under the content editing box. The default used to be "General Topics" so everyone just left that.

    I have now made the default "detection/identification of bed bugs" and if this isn't your focus, you will need to use the dropdown menu to pick a more suitable one. "General topics" is pretty much almost never the most accurate choice.

    Many of us mostly view discussions via the "latest discussions" list. But some people use the "forums" list at the bottom of the main page, so choosing a correct category for your thread means they too will see your post.

    Thanks!

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    LOL, TAOT!

    I didn't create it, just plugged it in.

    But think of them as flames killing bed bugs.

    Shouldn't the "hot topics" icon include a roasting bed bug?

    Yes! It might be hard to see one but if someone wants to work on that...
