Re: Site Feedback & Discussion

What is the difference between "New Posts" and "Active Topics"? If I'm checking Active Topics I also see new posts without any comments, so what makes a post "active"? i honestly don't know what "New Posts" does. i only use "Active Topics" to look at new content. i've tried researching it a few tim...

Re: Site Feedback & Discussion

Is there a way to "ping" a user like on reddit, where you type u/their username and they get a notification, thereby requesting they contribute to the discussion? Or is the only way to do this on our platform by quoting the person? Seems a bit intrusive... would not want people sort of force me int...

Re: A hairline crack

I've always been hesitant to use epoxy or 2 material bonding agents on ceramics i actually use. Never quite comfortable to use something that gets hot and moist and then drinking from it.

Re: A Teapot for drinking Taiwanese Oolongs
