Good good good.
The "New Posts" link seems to be working almost perfectly!
One weird thing (minor), some folks posted in some ancient threads, and I think the forum got confused. My thought is, it was a very old thread, but the forum didn't know if I had read the thread or not. I clicked on "New Posts" and it started from the beginning.
I just found the "Mark Forums Read" button you alluded to earlier. Post something in an old thread after I'm gone, I'm curious to see what happens when I click the "New Posts" link on an old thread now.
(Not trying to nitpick, it's scientific curiosity.
