There's a way in MyBB to display more threads when you click on View Today's Posts. I tinkered with it a bit on an old site of mine and found that the change resulted in more members responding to more threads more often. It also gives the illusion that a higher volume of posts are being made on a regular basis so it helps retain members and encourages more newbies to sign up.

Essentially it expands the time window. Right now, VTP shows threads commented on made within a 24 hour period. What I'm suggesting it to change that number to 36 or 48 for example. I don't know the correct number here so it'll take a bit of playing with to get a number that works well for the community to display a favorable number of threads.

Just a suggestion - I can implement the change or link to documentation if this is something Pherotruth is interested in.

That's an easy change to make, but normally we have a lot more posts in the course of a day than we've had recently. Summers always tend to slow down, and with the election season I'm thinking that had a bit to do with it too. If it doesn't start picking up at the beginning of the year that's something we can consider though.

Nobody changes until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of change....

I noticed that too. Seems a little too quiet around here, it's creepy really. Darn politics.

Awesome! Thanks Mark Smile
