    How long do messages stay on the Board? There seem to be so many pages.

    It all depends on the traffic and how many responses a post gets.

    Each time someone responds to a post, it bumps it back up to the top. If a post does not receive responses, and it is a busy day, that post will roll over to Page 2 very rapidly. This is why we say to make the titles of posts very specific. It encourages more people to respond.

    Watch your posts and if they are rolling over before people have a chance to respond, bump them back up yourself by clicking on Reply and just typing bump into the title and message fields.

    Hope this helps.

    Love, Mikie

    Depends on how much traffic we have. The backlog in pretty extensive for sure.

    If you are looking for something you wrote, just type your user name in the 'Search Messages' link at the top of this page and all your messages will come up, dated.

    Also your last 10 messages are on the bottom of your Profile.

    If you are looking for something, say a med, just type that in the same way, all posts with that med will come up also.

    Its an easier way to keep track of what you ask, instead of going page to page.

    This board moves very fast at times, and messages go back to the second, third page in a days' time.

    HOpe this helps.................

    Shalom, Shirl
