New activity

I've always wondered how many posts I have missed since they don't all get posted up on the home page. I thought it would be nice to be able to see them.

Imagine my surprise today when I discovered the New Activity tab on top of the forum page I can click on that and see all of the recent activity

Either it's a brand new tab or I'm just not too observant!

I know what my wife would say

Re: New activity

I have never used this forum any other way. I have checked the other ways to see if there was any reason to use them, but cannot think of any.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

+1, although I can offer a reason to do something a little different.

For me, every time I open this site I go to New Activity > Threads > Since Last Visit. Every thread listed has 1 or more posts that were knew since I was last here. I open each thread, then click on the envelope symbol (defined as "Go to first new post"), and I pick up right where I left off last time I was here.

Once in awhile I'll use new Activity > Threads > Past Day. This is because sometimes I can't finish going through all the new Threads > Since Last Visit before I have to bail, so Threads > Past Day gives me everything done during that day. There's a little repetition, but I also don't miss anything.
