    About three times a year I get a random mail from TDPRI with the subject line TDPRI Trending Threads.

    The timing is random, but the other thing is that the THREADS that get listed don't seem to be particularly "trending" at the time the mail arrives... Sometimes they are weeks old, and never generated much activity.

    I guess this is not that much of a problem, but it does seem kinda flaky, and the other thing is that I'm on here basically every day, so I don't really need this feature.

    Is there a way to turn this off?

    This will surely become a TDPRI Trending Thread.

    I wonder if we can MAKE it a trending thread...

    Then there will be a TDPRI Trending Thread about the TDPRI Trending Thread. This will continue, and the whole TDPRI website will then be like a giant fractal TDPRI Trending Thread. And then the universe as we know it will implode, but reappear as a new universe somewhere in space-time. I'm pretty sure that's what's going to happen ...

    It is going to be really funny if @Jupiter get a Trending email about this thread. I think we should all help along.:twisted:

    I haven't dug around to see if they are usually getting filtered, but even if so it's weird that one gets through every few months....

    I got one today. And one from the Stratocaster, Les Paul, Epiphone and Squier sites. I get them occasionally. Those other sites I don't go to very often but you're correct. Threads are almost always old.

    I have a felling the moderators have a pretty good sense of humor. @Jupiter could end up with lots of trending emails from this.:lol::lol::lol:

    Jumping in to get the thread trending. Also, whenever I see MLP I think My Little Pony :lol:. (I have a 4yo daughter).
