Why is my "I'm on" list getting longer & longer? I'm sure that previously I could only see the last 5-7 threads?

Is it the same number of threads but more individual posts in each, maybe?

odd!, mine is getting shorter, the threads i post on keep getting deleted!

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:05:50

Definitely more threads.......unless I've had a posting frenzyblush. I'm sure that in the past older threads simply "disappeared" after a certain length of time?

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:07:57

hhhmmmmmm.........just checked back and a bit ashamed to find how much I have posted recently....I may be addicted!!

JJ Fri 09-Oct-09 21:08:54

There's a "days to check" option in the Talk preferences - you shouldn't have any older than whatever's set there.

Sorry, I realise that's not a whole lot of help!

grin at just posting more than you realised! (I do that, too)

I got down to 0 posts in 7 days this week.

I think I was ill last time that happened.

Not quite sure why really.

well apart from you talk too much... i think the 'threads i am on' option can be changed to show by number you are on or by a time limit.

hmmmm........perhaps I need to have a few MN free days per week....just like I've discovered with wine free days too....grin

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:15:22

fishie - how do I do that blush

Knickers0nMahead Fri 09-Oct-09 21:16:45

The limit is 51 I think, I always end up losing threads because I do not think this is enough!

PeachesMcLean Fri 09-Oct-09 21:20:25

And come to think of it, it's not true. I posted here on Monday. Or Tuesday. And my thingy is set at 7 days.

Hmm. <strokes chin>

Why's that then?

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:23:16

ummmm...need to go to "my Mumsnet"...I'm sure I've never had more than 5-7 threads "live" before

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:26:32

Been to "MyMumsnet" and can't see how to change settings.....probably had too much vino......any clues?

JJ Fri 09-Oct-09 21:29:00

The thing you need to change is in Customise link above.

QueensShilling Fri 09-Oct-09 21:32:44

JJ - thank you....I've learnt something today!!

<arrives too late to be of any use at all>

Thanks, JJ, for sorting it out!
