Thanks for the suggestions. It is a difficult one to manage - we do have many new members joining each day, but we also have a lot of regular members who engage, so it would probably be unfair to prioritise some posts over others., we do provide tips for new members to encourage them to get involved in discussions and introduce themselves, as this is usually the best way to get responses in a forum environment and also feel like you belong.
Please rest assured, the posts you see with our message at the bottom have received a reply from our support service so they have not been missed.
We will be adding some features before the end of the year that will allow you to subscribe to threads you are interested in, so you'll get a message when there are new replies in that thread. This should make it easier for you to keep on top of discussions that you're participating in.
