Slightly off topic, but increasing the Empire About as fast ! Can we have the 'Similar Topics' scanned for 'catch phases' and could it be bigger with a very slow flash?
Especially for new members ! Just a thought that won't go away ! Big AL !

I've read this a few times, but I don't understand what you are suggesting. ??

My bad, The Similar Threads, not Similar topics at the bottom of the page, Some of our members try very hard to caption their Threads with a good "catch phase'',
I thought that the Captions/titles should be screen for additional sources of 'Catch phrases '.

I am also suggesting as a separate issue that the 'Similar Threads' appear to be under utilized, often when you respond to a question that the other member is asking,
their second question shows that they didn't look in the 'similar threads' for an answer- because that question would be already answered for them if they had gone to
'similar threads'

As a related issue I was proposing that the 'Similar threads' could be a little larger,easier to read, closer to the Preview and Submit buttons, and possibly be equipped
with a very slow "Flash'' to draw the eye there !

Now that we are up-gradeing the posting instructions, it seemed like a good time to look at this as a related issue !

Hope this is clearer now! I greatly enjoy my time spent here at Permies ! Think like Fire, Flow like Gas ! PYRO - LOGICALLY Big AL !

Wow I didn't even know that was there!
So allen, if we are talking about rocket heaters there is some internal program here, that will list a few other rocket heater threads ?

Miles : Yes that is my understanding, and in the Cob section similar cob questions,> > > > I think we could mine the # of hits it gets, but first we need to
make it more visible to casual visitors/posters !

Speaking of Cob I wish to propose for a 'catch phrase', ''It Won't burn, it won't rot, and it's as cheap as dirt !",
If that doesn't draw visitors, I'll eat your Hat !!!

For the Craft ! Big Al
