Hello everybody!

Hi,

New member here, but not new to cycling. Been cycling since 2002. I've been a member of Road Bike Review since 2014 and came over here to see what's going on since it's nearly dead on RBR.

You should ask to be credited 17,100 posts.

Thanks! Hey, I've been on RBR for 8 years, so my skin is pretty thick.
​​​​
I have a question for all you regulars. Is there a convenient way to find all your followed posts that have been replied to?

Off the top, I don’t know. would have to do some trial and error to find which I am sure you are capable as well. Perhaps someone else will chime in,

A lot of that stuff can be accessed from the upper-right-hand corner, where there is a downward-pointed triangle and your user-name.

Also, the "Tools" menu item, third from the left (at least in my case) lists "my threads" and "my posts."

Notifications, subscriptions and so-on can be tweaked from the User Control Panel (CP), first item on the left in the sub-menu at the top.

Again, welcome!

Ahhhh, that's what I was looking for, thanks! Though I can't find this on the smartphone version - the Tools tab doesn't exist there.

Sorry. I've never used a phone version, so it did not occur to me.

I figured it out! I went to User Control Panel / Subscribed Threads / List Subscriptions. Works on both the phone and laptop!

Some stuff doesn't work on the mobile website, the notifications icon for example. But You can always use your browser's "Desktop Site" option from the main menu.

So you're on RBR? What is your screen name over there?

OK, another question. Does anybody know how to change that title under your screen name which defaults as Newbie, Junior Member, Senior Member, etc?

Sure
Open your User Control Panel (click on your avatar on the top panel)
in Your Control Panel (the left bar): go to Your Profile > Edit Your Details
then scroll down to Optional Information > Custom User Title
either press enter with the new title or scroll down to the page and click on Save Changes

Hey all!

600+ posts later, I have a question. Does anybody know what the icon is next to the poster's name? I notice some have an icon that looks like a shirt.
