Thanks for the great explanation, Dusty!
JP, I'm just curious- did you not look over the other threads in this Site Questions forum to see if the solution to your problem had already been asked about and answered? There are actually three other threads concerning not seeing other replies to a discussion, only the original post.... and the reason being you must join a Group in order to read the Group's full discussions. I hope you now understand why you were not seeing the whole discussion.
Dusty mentions the main site links along the TOP navigation bar on every page of FOTMD (Home, Forums, Photos, Videos, etc). When one is very confused about how the site is laid out, it really does help to click those links to gain a better understanding of the areas of main function and content. Not everything is immediately accessible from the Main Page... or else it would have to be five miles long.
I'm glad you were able to post a new thread here in the Site Questions forum in order to ask your new question, though! I'm going to edit this thread's title to be more descriptive of the thread subject now- in order to help others in the future looking for answers to similar questions as yours. :)
