Good morning .... well, I am using FIREFOX now and back using Classic and am happy as a clam. For the life of me I cannot see the advantage(s) of Modern but I'm hardly qualified to judge computers and website ease and convenience of use.

Here's my question though. If I make a post or reply using Modern like I did a few times yesterday, and check the box for email notification, I get an email notification in my email inbox for EVERY reply that shows up for that entire thread right? Whereas using Classic and asking for notification, I only receive notification if someone replies to MY post (or reply), etc, is that right?

If so, one thing I know for sure. If was was continuing to use Modern I would never ask for email notification. It's a full time job (exaggerating) to clear them out.

Thanks, MIKE (Crazy Horse)

Yes, that is correct, and it sort of hints at why there is a difference between classic and modern. On modern view, a thread is treated like a thread, a discussion about a specific topic which many people are adding their .02. On classic, unless the original post is replied to, the thread breaks into several private conversations that often end up only loosely related to the original topic.

Because of this, a notification is going to be sent out for each reply on modern. That makes sense if you consider that a forum can be used to 1. Ask a question 2. Get all the answers people offer. That's how modern is designed. On classic it's not done that way, since it's many sub-threads of people moving off-topic and starting private conversations. There would be no reason to receive a notification about what a couple of other people are discussing. In that classic context, you tend to just want to know about a reply to what you said, but not to what everyone else is talking about.

OK, so that's how it works then, as I thought. My preference though is to scroll down a page that I'm looking at, say today's page one in Tractor Talk. I can see the most recent posts and the topics, and how many have replied (and who replied) to the original posts and who replied to the replies, etc. It's not always a given that "separate" discussions take place I don't think, at least I wouldn't call them that. They can wander at times though. I would say generally though that the Modern view is more time consuming to browse, at least I think it is. And for sure I prefer the Classic email notification system, the current modern one is wearing me out (ha) deleting notification emails. Anyways, I'm happy to be back where I started and Classic and/or Modern are good terms .... I would never replace them with Good and/or Best.

I read one other of your replies on this part of the forum relating to how so many posts can wander off topic because of political leanings, which in turn often result in name calling. I visit a few other web sites on totally different subjects and seldom if ever does that happen. There is something about the YT crowd and their personalities for doing that. One site I visit (not tractor related) has an equivalent section to Tractor Tales ..... they call it How's Life ..... same idea. Even there nothing ever gets off track politically and name calling never happens (eg snowflakes, tree huggers, pansies, etc. That always leaves me scratching my head. I have called individuals out at times and as a result have gotten into the mob scene that results, those kinds of comments really bother me.
