    New news items of high importance are posted on page 1. Less-reliable info and random news items are placed on "page2". The other forums change with most recent post.

    If you post a reply to a "hardware" topic, it will jump to the top until another topic has a new post. It keeps the most active posts on the front page.

    i believe the ones that are chosen to be on the front page are selected by most current post, so if someone posts in a thread that one gets bumped back up to the front....and check the site's FAQ for member stats, it takes posts to increase your ranking

    Speaking of which - how many posts do you need to do to get an avatar?

    You are impatient! You are posting twice a day... the first post author posts once every 10 days. Guess who will hit 500 posts in 5 months and who will hit 500 posts in 15 years! :eek:

    be sure not to spam, though. only post real relevant thoughts, comments. no (severe) flames, etc. i did the same thing, except i lurked for 2 years, I now post on a regular basis. just start getting involved in some conversations. oh, and HAVE FUN! This is a great place!
