You have to mark a forum read to set a timestamp for us to use to tell you about new posts.

You ALSO have to have "Quick Links" enabled on your profile (The W) - I think our default is to show them, but you may have disabled them without having any idea that's what you were doing.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense.

    It seems I did. Wow, now things look different! So you read new posts by forum, not by thread. Interesting. Seems pretty good, actually. Thanks.

Is there a way to make the "(x new)" under the replies in each forum clickable so that it takes you to your 1st unread post in a thread? Or maybe making the "NEW" icon to the left of the thread title clickable to do it? Doing it from the main page is nice, but I don't want to read through replies to threads I'm not interested in.

Or would that be too much work for you (that is a legit. question, not a smart-assy question, please don't take offense)?

That doesn't sound like it'd be too hard.

EDIT: On the other hand...may I ask why you haven't set your profile to "Show New Posts Only?" Then, you could just click on the thread titles from the forum page.

I on dial-up mode (read: at work) and somehow, the picture in Leroy's post in the Tag Team thread (The W) is visible to me. That's not right, is it?
