Similar Topics feature - do you use it? POLL

It's at the bottom of every topic in the forum. It's automatic.

It carries a cost to load it every forum topic pageview. In server resources, not money, which means a few milliseconds longer wait for you.

Not much, not noticeable. In aggregate, this adds up, like everything does.

I've never seen a button saying that. So I'm not sure if I use it. I use the new posts button most, then your posts next. June

Yes, this is handy if it returns information that may have been missed by not searching or a poor search for relevant posts.

It's not a button. It's just a thing below all the posts in a given topic that says "Similar Posts" and has similar posts' titles/links beneath it.

It appears on every topic that it can, so I'd say 90%+.

There's no way not to get it on most topics.

Oh, you mean the topics way at the bottom of the page. I wondered why they were there. I rarely scroll that far down, but have on occasion used them. June

I think most MVS Info Surf Junkies will use it.
