    Good eye.

    New Posts and What's New? Both display the latest threads which have been updated since the last time you viewed them.

    "Posts in the last 24 hours" displays everything regardless of if you have already read them or not.

    So for example, if you reply to a thread, then click "New Posts"... The thread you just posted in will not be listed, because you have already read your reply in that thread.

    Personally, I always use the "Posts in the last 24 hours"... I like to also be reminded of the topics I've posted to recently, and often have additional thoughts I go back and edit into my post.

    When I go to a particulat topic, any thread that has a new post is a different color, so I do not need to do a search for new posts. They are all right there already. I just go to the topics that interest me and check for a different color:

    NewPostsOldPosts.jpg

    When I am done for the day, or morning or afternoon or whatever, I simply mark all threads as having been read so that the next time I open the Lounge all new posts are once again highlighted in blue. If I do not get through all topics, I do not marked the threads as read so that the next time new posts are still blue.
