That doesn't sound like what he was talking about, and I'd like to second the desire for that (I clicked on the thread to post the same thing completely aside from him heh).
I keep my forum session logged in on my home PC, and it's obnoxious to the point where I don't even really bother checking the site but maybe once a day now (as opposed to maybe twice an hour as I find myself waiting on things at work) and hardly read anything because there's just so many threads the forum is telling me "ZOMG NEW POSTS!!!!" for posts that're all quite old at this point.
I can't tell what's REALLY a new post or not, because I don't compulsively click every thread and read them, so there're TONS of threads the forum says are new or have new posts, but they're just stuff I didn't bother to read, or don't care about new postings to... That used to not matter. I could just close my browser tab and the next time I came here I'd see what was new since my last visit.
The view new posts and view unanswered posts links don't really address this, they just show you every post the forum thinks is new, without them being categorized, and it still shows all the other ones as new, too. Right now the forum tells me there are 129 posts for me to read, and I'd have to hunt through that whole list just to find say, a disc dying thread or trade posts, and even if it was only showing the 44 posts that've been submitted since my last visit, I'd still have no organization to the list...
