"Recent Activity" now almost useless
Oct 27, 2012

"Recent Activity" has now been rendered less usable.  It no longer tells you when the last post was made to a thread which you have participated in, and sorts by that criterion, but goes by the "Date" that the thread was started!  That is totally useless information.  Who cares when a thread was started?  I need to have the most recently replied-to threads in which I have participated in at the top of the list, not down at the bottom somewhere because the thread is a month old..

I also have never understood why "Recent Activity" has always ignored threads older than a certain amount.  I want to know about ALL the threads in which I have participated.  I have missed questions posed to me in year-old posts because the forum code decided that older threads are not worth mentioning. This is absurd.
