Default Help--I'm losing threads and posts

The way this forum is set up--maybe just because of it's sheer unwieldy size--there are SO many members and posts and threads....I KNOW I'm losing important information because it's not readily apparent in the thread titles...and I KNOW that I'm not getting important information and that many are never seeing information I post because it immediately gets buried in an avalanche of new posts. Trying to stay abreast of developments on it has become a full time job. I'm about eliminate it, even though its ultimate design and purpose was great.

As tricked out as this forum software is, I believe it is beginning to be too hard to use. I'm starting to go back to my own news groups (which tend to weed out the people who don't relate to the other members rather quickly, and keep posts on purpose). I can see it would be a full time job and subject to a lot of flaming to try to pick out the most relevant and timely information and on-purpose posts here on this one and bulletin-board them under well-keyworded topics.

I'm guessing others are talking about this...? Anyone have any tips on how to eliminate the unnecessary but necessary sifting? I can't work and watch this forum too, badly as I wish to...
