I have a shortcut view to "All Posts" and generally browse from there. What gets me about this is that there is no "New Post" button in this view...

Same.

BUT

If you're looking for posts according to an interest area or grouping, you can't find them because finding a channel to put them in is a PITA.

This normally wouldn't be a problem, because Vorb is a big beautiful (w)hole, but people want to filter their content. Roadies may not want to see DH posts and vice versa. So the ability to customise the site to best suit your interests gets blown to bits because no one has allocated it to a channel/forum/keyword/#hashtag.

I just go to http://www.vorb.org.nz and click on "latest posts" (the same as clicking all posts)
That shows me all posts regardless of the channel (including posts with no channel)
As I said, the volume is quite managable so I have no need to ever click of sifting or cycling...
Also, at the bottom of the all posts page there is a "New Topic" button for starting new threads

Oh. So there is. Why would one put that button there and not at the top? :p

Do you still have to be a 'Pit Dweller' to view the Pit?

If so, then go to 'Advanced Options' (up there on the right), then 'Edit Your Profile' then click on the 'Usergroups' tab. There should be a list of the groups that you can join.

Silly idea and don't know if it even possible but....

Seeing that Hashtag is so 27.5 trendy at the moment, would it be possible for Vorb to have accounts where those hashtag are used =} Twitter, Hipstergram, etc and the pics get picked up here in a thread ?

Do people seriously not use mini-vorb as the sole method of seeing what's been happening on here?

Unless you're searching of course - turn it's pretty much a lottery these days.
