to think that people who read threads from top to bottom are weirdos

and that MN threads should be set to newest post at the top.

yy to search the page, CTRL F and type your name. Or whoever you are searching for. It is v handy.

I really couldn't say, Mardy. There were a lot of people doing their tax return today.

Yes if a long thread looks like it is going to descend into mayhem I quickly go to 'show all messages' in case it disappears halfway through.

How does two tabs work? Cos if it goes poof you won't be able to get into the next page, surely?

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:22:50

Yup, and just refresh the oldest one. Then when it does go poof, you've got teh maximum posts possible.

I follow the advice of the king from Alice in Wonderland (who I believe to be a secret mumsnetter), I always begin at the beginning and go on till I come to the end: then stop.

Top to bottom, it's the only way.

LIsten to ChaosSan.

Only ever read OneONPage.

Multipages is wank.

MmeLindor Fri 01-Feb-13 00:23:53

yes, I do the two tabs thing too.

Any other tricks?

EduCated Fri 01-Feb-13 00:24:22

That sounds like effort.

In other news, having seen Les Mis, I have decided that Eddie Redmayne will be my husband.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:25:24

I like pages. It gives the thread some structure.

GetOrf Fri 01-Feb-13 00:25:29

I watched Django Unchained and fancy Christoph Waltz.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:25:41

Hands off Edu.

WorraLiberty Fri 01-Feb-13 00:25:46

Oh now I'm confused?

If I refresh the oldest one, won't it go poof anyway?

Perhaps I should have 2 PCs, 4 laptops and various hand held devices logged on...and I can run around the house like I'm spinning plates.

That should do it grin

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:25:55

If you want to know where all the shizzle is going down that day, use AS to search for "Deleted By Mumsnet" or "Peace and love".

Takes you straighy to the flames...

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:26:36

Yus, but you'll still have the most recentest one still alive.


GetOrf Fri 01-Feb-13 00:26:36

lol at searching for peace and love grin

That is a brilliant tip.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:26:59

Unfortunately if you look at my hoverererer, he might not be interested in me.

Unless he has a penchant for dumpy middle-aged women.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:27:24

I need someone to go and see Les Mis with.

<<flutters eyelashes>>

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:28:09

I just go to Active Convos and go for the threads with the most posts, as they're usually either contentious or funny.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:28:21

I was called wise today, GetO!



I took a screenshot, oh, yus, I dif.

WorraLiberty Fri 01-Feb-13 00:29:26

I suppose I could search for < Ahem! >

EduCated Fri 01-Feb-13 00:29:57

I couldn't work out why everyone was crying. Then realised he was signing a sad song. I was too busy admiring his freckles. In all seriousness, I think he is the most beautiful man I have ever seen.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Fri 01-Feb-13 00:30:00

You can come with me and DD if you're in my neck of the woods Chaos. I still haven't seen it (due to the aforementioned tax return). But I still love Eddie since Tess of the D'Urbevilles (although Gemma Arterton was shite in that with her crap West Country accent and wooden accent).

GetOrf Fri 01-Feb-13 00:30:04

lol at wise.

My proudest moment on MN was when buppy called me an atrocious cunt for slagging off Kurt Cobain. It doesn't get better than that.

MmeLindor Fri 01-Feb-13 00:30:40

Ha. Peace and love it a great search term.

Taylor Kitsch. You will lust after no Eddies, if you have gazed at the lusciousness that it Taylor.

Despite his funny name.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 01-Feb-13 00:30:53

Yup, that;s another goody.

Also "My first biscuit"

Although, it has been know that some posters say that repeatedly.
