    I am on BHW every day for a few hours or more. Maybe I spend too much time here but this place is more addictive than crack.
    I have always spent my time on the home page....cause this is where the newest threads and the newest post are. Or so I thought until today.

    Today I started a new thread in the link building subforum. After I submitted the thread I went back to the home page but I didn't see my thread there. Well I didn't think much about it and went on to do some other things then I returned to BHW and thought I'd see if anyone had posted to my thread. There were a couple of posts and I replied to one and then went back to the homepage. Guess what. My thread is not showing there.

    After figuring it out I feel like such a jackass. I always assumed that everytime a new thread was posted or replied to it would jump to the top of the homepage. I did not realize that this is not the case with some of the subforums. Or at least its not the case with the link building subforum.

    Now I was wondering if this is just a fluke or has it always been this way? How many people knew about this and why the hell didn't you tell me? What other subforums do not show up on the homepage when there is a new thread or post?

    I shiver when I think of all the useful information I missed by only relying on new posts that show up on the homepage while many where passing me by.

    Hmmmm!

    Edit: this thread went to the top of the homepage.

    I just didn't realize it until today or I would have been doing that. I always considered the homepage as sort of like a semi-live feed that kept you updated on every new post and every new thread each time you refreshed the page.
    Just didn't realize some sections were not included.
