    A 'quick' visit to the forums for the newest challenge and some gallery love means you have to hit NewPosts four different times before you can mark All Read.
    (because once you finally get to the last page of a search result, 2 more pages of stuff has been posted).

    How do you know?

    I'd say you've hit the nail on the head. I've been amazed at how quickly the gallery moves...and equally amazed at how quickly people post in response to the newest challenge. I think I must be the slowest scrapper. I have a lot of catching up to do this week.

    Oh, that is so true! You think you're caught up, but you hit "refresh" and there's a ton more!

    I know when my fingers are starting to cramp and my butt is flattening :giggle

    It's really amazing how quickly everything is moving! My head is spinning from trying to keep up!

    LOL at the flattening butt... I was telling my husband last night I want a standing desk because I am sitting WAY TOO MUCH.

    Nah! Some of the challenges come easier to some than others. I was shocked how quickly the triangle came together for me. But it took a long time to get the tradition one done!

    I know when I post my page, hit refresh, and the whole page is new layouts!

    And the fact that my house is collecting dust bunnies since there's so much fun to be had and people to chat with and layouts to love on here!

    I have to take a deep breath when I log in in the mornings because there's usually over 800 alerts because somehow I've subscribed to all these things and I just hit post without unclicking the box. I literally scroll through and try to read every single one, moving fast past "uploaded"'s but man, I even missed a few comments and went back to one of my layouts and was shocked to see a comment. I tried to get in the gallery and leave some love since I'm caught up and WOW. It moves FAST. So I feel ya, My.

    I can help you with that.

    Because I know that is overwhelming.

    Okay, I just went into alerts, threads, then INTO the thread and hit unwatch thread, is that right?

    You can also do a bulk unwatch of threads similar to the gallery unwatch by going into the "Watched Threads" area linked on the gray bar near the top of the forum. :)

    I don't even try to keep up with commenting - it's too overwhelming.
    So much going on, it's simply incredible.

    Earlier this month, after I returned from my vacation and was catching up on MOC, I completed two challenges within a couple of hours. When I went to post the second one, I expected to see the first one in the gallery, having posted it just an hour previously, but it was already pushed onto the second page!

    I learned a trick for leaving love in the gallery. If you have a smart phone, use it! I'll dictate my comments. It's so much faster than typing! I need to do that soon because I've not been very good at leaving comments this MOC. I feel bad...

    Thank you for that! It was frustrating to me to always remember to go back and unwatch media after making a comment in the gallery.
