- How do we know if a topic has been replied in since we've posted?
- How do we know which topics we've posted in?
Well I find the notifcations and email notifcations frankly crap compared to the old board, as it spams your email as you get a notification of every single post which isn't nice and every topic gets it's own email and it quotes the post in the email, I've only got notifications for PM's and Respect points.
The best thing I find is if you open up the My Content section (click on your username at the top to find it) it lists all the topics you've posted in if you have the optons set as By Content Type > Forums, and See this member's > Topics and posts, and then set it to Sort by "Last update time".
If there is a new reply to the topic you've posted in then the topic will have a darker band down the left side, if you've read that topic the whole topic bar will be smooth. Then you just need to click on the Star to open up that topic at the last unread post (note if you've not read the topic since the update then it may take you to page 1 or 2, but this will correct itself going forward). I personally find that 'middle clicking' so you open it up a new tab works and just keep that My Contents page open all the time, once you've opened up each topic then just click on "Topics and Posts" on the left to refresh the page
