Since BPL changed and did not tell anyone. Did you all know that Chaff is now an option in your viewing pleasure? You have to set your preference under the forum index tab. Easy.

I would have preferred gearswap to have the same filter.

BPL seems soulless as of late without it being utilized. Have also seen plenty of Chaff posts in every other forum too. JMT pencil anyone?

Have some fun and help revive Chaff and add some personality to this site once again.


My 2 cents.

Edited for proper instructions. Thanks Jerry.

I'm trying but I thought everyone had left the building.

The sign on the building was removed and nobody knows what is in there.

I generally log on and click recent posts. Yes, gearswap does take up a lot viewing real estate.

"You have to set your settings under your account header. Easy."

Huh?

I fiddled around a bit and didn't see how to do that.

"Change My Profile"?

Just wanted to say thanks to BPL for taking chaff out of the recent threads section.

That's why I was saying thanks. Next I am going to start a thread about how I would like to win the lottery:).

Or even better... A personalised filtering option. There's a lot of threads I don't read. Fishing, Philmont, swap, deals, scouts, bike packing, hammock.

One would think that the ownership would seek feedback from their customers regarding changes, or at least make an announcement when changes take place. This is what is really irritating -- changes without comment or notice. Maybe Ryan should read, Customers for Life, by Carl Sewel.

BTW,

I think I have resolved the pencil and paper conundrum. Have to go camping with my wife this weekend, so it will be the following weekend before I can test it out unless she wants to go on a long hike this weekend. Seriously!!
