Is this not what anyone else is seeing?
That's what I'm seeing, too, but I prefer to click New Posts from the index page rather than go into the individual forums. When I did that on the old board, the threads with the most recent posts came up. When I clicked it again, say 40 minutes later, all threads with new posts during that 40 minutes came up at the top of the list, depending on when the latest post was added. Now, when I click New posts 40 minutes later, only threads that had new posts that weren't in the first group show at the top of the list, even if the threads I looked at previously have had new posts added.
Still trying to work with the new system and figure out what will give me what I want....
ETA: And see, replying to this thread buries it. When I clicked new posts (5 minutes after the previous time), it didn't even show on the first page. So by the time I read through a selection and Mark posts read, there's going to be new posts that I haven't read and won't know about. Still think it needs refining...
