Just a suggestion now that this board is going to be the replacement for the emial list.
All other forums I use have an option of just showing the "new" posts by clicking on a "new" button.
This forum shows which subforum has new posts but you have to look at each subforum to see if you are interested in the posts. The option of having just the new post displayed would be a good thing. Can this be added to the site?
I think that your suggestion could be quite useful. As Aaron mentioned in another thread, we are using external software for these forums (Drupal) and things are not as easily customizable as one might like, but I have put it on a list of features to investigate. Thanks!
