Re: How many people use "View New Posts" vs. reading a few specific forums

it's cookies

the same way that you can come back to the site without having to log in every time

it knows which threads have new posts, since your last log in

so...since you're on the site now, there have only been three new posts since you "logged in" (even though you didn't have to log in)

I just browse, I look in enclosures, ball pythons, colubrids, and leos, if I view new posts, I get all kinds of stuff that I don't read anyways
