Continuing the discussion from The Society's Community "How To" Guides:
There are several ways to see what users are participating in a conversation:
In the first instance, in the list of topics on the homepage you will see a selection of avatars (profile pictures) of:
- the user who started the thread (always the first photo);
- a selection of the most active participants;
- and, who left the most recent comment (the last photo).
(hold your mouse over the member’s image to read the description)
Pro Tip: In some cases, the first photo has a blue border - this indicates that the original poster is also the most recent poster
When you visit a thread, you will see a box below the original post that tells you: who created the post and when, a count of the replies and views in this thread to date, and a display of the avatars of the most frequent participants.
We hope you find these a handy summary of the activity that encourage you to participate and to get to know other members.
