RE: "New Posts" function
Mr. fst. You're not seeing it. Must be the murky water in the harbor. Every time you log in, the circle to the left of the various sections of the site will be "lit" if something new has been posted. Individual threads within the section will be "lit" as well. In my case, orange. When you log out, hit "Mark all as read" and she'll be clear for you to see the new items the next time you log in.
