Christmas Together We're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

I'm really trying but...

Ok so I'm on the site,I've become a plat. member, but I'm still not sure I'm doing this right.Sometimes it seems there's no one on here. How can I find threads where everybody is @? I'm not very computer saavy but I get by, so maybe I'm doing something wrong or just not doing enough. i don't know.

Hi Merrymistletoe,

Your best bet is to head over to the Christmas Countdown thread, as that is the most active thread on the forum. Remember, this is a forum, not a chat venue. So it isn't "live" conversation. Your platinum membership gives you access to chat in ALL areas of MMC and to access those features not available otherwise.

Was there something specific you were looking for?

Jeff

Come on in to the radio & music forums. There are only about five regulars there and not usually present at the same time.

I've figured out why I can't get everywhere. I'm not platinum anymore. <sniff, sniff> I don't recall how I got there but I can't do it now. Hubby says to cut back. Oh well... I look a lot but don't post much anymore.

You're a MMC Pioneer -- that's permanent Platinum, Maebeary. You should not have access problems anywhere. If you do, let me know where and I'll look into it.

Hey Merry,

When I first log in to mmc, I scroll down beneath recent threads and new videos to User CP (Your photo will be beside it). You'll see the words New Posts. If I'm interpreting it right, those are the posts that have appeared since I was last here.

I click those, because I know it's the latest stuff. You're fairly likely to find active threads that way, and bump into your chums.

Also, if you go to the main forums page and scroll close to the bottom, under What's Going On?, there's a list of who's on board at the moment. Click a name and it takes you to their page, which has a little read out of where they're at.

Now that's all assuming I'm reading things correctly. I'm no expert.

Best,
jimmyolsen

Thank you, jimmyolsen! Nice to hear how folks use the site. I'm sure others have different suggestions as well.

I'm the first to admit that MMC is a complex site. It takes some getting used to in order to find everything -- kind of like my living room on Christmas morning. But stick with it, merrymistletoe! You'll get the hang of it in short order.

This is exactly what I do! I log in and then click "new posts" because it provides you all the posts since you last logged in. So you get to see ALL the activity. I love it. Sometimes I check out the individual sections (if I have a thread I want to start, which isn't that often) but more likely...just new posts.
