Water, water everywhere not a drop to drink

This saying 'water, water everywhere not a drop to drink' could be applied to discussions that are not available for responding. We do read posts talking about not finding discussions to respond. There are as many as 3055300 discussions at this moment but where are they? How does one access them? Following the various tabs that have been presented here such as recent discussions, top rated, hot, interesting, no responses, discussions from followings, etc. does not help much as they cover activities of the last 24 hours Any suggestions?

There is a way to find them using just the numbers, but I don't recollect how to do it with this version. You can always do a tag search. Oh...and 'recent' goes all the way back, as far as I have looked, not just 24 hours...but 11 years is a LOT of scrolling.

If all these categories are done away with and categories are introduced may be it could expose many more discussions?

@allknowing I don't know if the program they use now would support the old categories. I myself preferred them quite a bit more over the 'tag' system they use now.

@JolietJake And the OP is quite satisfied with that response (lol) . It is the number of responses and not their quality that earns. The whole system needs a change and surely you can suggest something so that everyone gets a fair chance to be noticed.

Often following the rabbit trails of "You Might Also Like" can lead from one discussion to another. Some of the discussions are by inactive Mylotters, but you can usually find currently active Mylotters. It's one of the reasons to use tags.

Only a few users get many responses to their posts and this needs to be analysed. Many discussions do not surface at all. The time zone factor needs to be addressed.

@Morleyhunt But your approach is not what many are following here going by how only a few reach the top.

How about going over a user's posts?

How many users can you tackle and on what basis. How are we to know if their posts are interesting?

Go to your 'following' tab, go to the profiles of some of those you follow and check out their old posts for interesting titles. Or maybe search in 'tagged discussions' for a keyword that interests you.

It is not about me but a general observation that what we see everyday is not the whole story
