    New-posts function

    Who uses it? And who checks the forums normally?

    Never seen why anyone would want to use new-posts personally, but I only view 2 forums which have any significant activity. I guess if you view the many games forums plus CC, OT, GSF, WCC\CWXI and all, it might have its uses.

    Personally, hardly ever go outside Cricket Chat and Off Topic, so it doesn't take me too long to see where the day's activity has been.

    Hadn't even noticed a 'new posts' function tbh.

    Always use the new posts function. So much easier to see if any interesting threads have been launched anywhere on the site plus you can see immediately whether any threads that you've contributed to have been posted to.

    Maybe this is because you're incapable of seeing beyond yourself? I don't really see the point of the above quoted comment, but you said it anyway.

    I browse CC, OT, GSF, CWXI and others at times, so New Posts seems a logical choice. Still go into individual forums from time to time though, have only started viewing by New Posts lately. If I haven't been on for a few days I am more likely to go via the forum views, but if I have been on earlier in the day or whatever, New Posts is the best way.

    Would love it if you could filter out boards you don't use though

    Well you can't filter-out boards as such, but you can un-new all posts in any given forum by double-clicking on the icon thus turning it into a and as a result they won't come-up on the New Posts function.

    Nah, though I do obviously believe the way I do things is the best way - pretty obviously so, else I'd do them another way.

    That could be said about more comments than not made in The World every day TBH.

    Takes a lot of effort though. Would rather have the chance to stop stuff from The Shareware sections etc showing up.

    Hmm, generally takes me about 20-30 seconds (on the 1-in-20-weeks occasion I do it). There's only, what, 5 or 6 forums in the applicable range?

    And I have most of the forums on hidden, only viewing "Cricket Chat", "Ask Cricket Web" and "Other".

    Go to forums when I first get on, and have a quick browse through them, and then end up using "New Posts" function most of the time after that.

    It does when you have to do it to 10 icons every time you view the forum. Just easier to ignore the posts when they appear.
