It's been a while since anyone has mentioned this, but you can change how you see this and every other forum here on the Cow. As you can see in the image below, you can set the forum to show up By Thread; By Topic or By Newest Posts. That drop down dialogue is right there at the top of this forum under our floating heads.
Depending on how you like to see your information, set up the display as you see fit. Oh and you an also change how far back you go with the posts by using the "View: 1 week" drop down and change that to another time value.
Per the conversation down below about this forum getting a bit bloated due to all the various questions being thrown in here by Newbies, off topic, etc... I would think the Display by Topic might be of interest to some folks.
