I liked the old red folder/yellow folder system where you could tell what topics had new posts. Is there a way to tell on the new forums that I'm not picking up?

Jack- The new system can only show new posts when you're logged in, but, thanks to the new automatic login feature, you shouldn't need to log in each and every time (as long as you use the same computer).

The way the old system worked was that it stored a cookie on that PC which indicated the last post you had read, but if you browsed the forum from different computers (as I did), then the cookies would always be out of synch. The new system stores this information with your user ID so that if you were to log in from different computers, the information is always the same. Combined with the auto-login feature, I think this is a much better system.
