Listing of new threads since last visit

  1. Mar 13, 2004 #1
    I'd much rather get a listing of new threads since my last visit than a massive listing of new posts, most in old forums I am not interested in. Or a filter on the listing of posts would be nice.

    When somebody creates a new thread it automatically gets bumped up on top. If somebody replies to another thread, the newly created thread gets bumped down a notch or two, but you certainly won't miss it.

    However, you can always subscribe to the forum of your choice and occassionally looked it up in your user cp.

    That's not exactly a good idea. Subscribing to a forum means that you get an email every time somebody starts a new thread. If you did that to a popular forum like general math or general physics, your email box would fill up very fast.

    Not exactly, vBulletin 3 allows you to subscribe to threads or forums without getting email notifications about new postings. :smile:
