    I never really thought about this til now, but I noticed that at least invisionfree and proboards forums have a small spot near their forum statistics that shows the most recent reply to a thread. I know the chat system certainly documents this. Likewise, the chat system alerts users when a new thread has been made.

    This is a nice feature and all, but the chat gets cleared regularly (or at least, sort-of regularly...) and normal users cannot see the chat archive at all. So this information tends to get lost.

    Sure, a user can skim through all the boards to see which threads are new or recently replied to, but wouldn't it be a nice feature if there were a link to a list of... say... maybe the 10 newest threads?

    I mean, forget replies. Popular threads blow up the chat with reply alerts. But new threads seem to get lost in the deluge quite often and may not get any replies until days or weeks later. Some newbies seem to leave if they feel they've been completely ignored.

    Would you say this is a good idea?

    I had that feature a while ago but it was removed. You can see what your looking for here: http://community.psionnation.com/find-new/posts

    To find this hover over the Forums Link and go down to "New Posts". If you're on a mobile then it should automatically cascade a drop down list which also contains "New Posts".

    Not quite the same as what I'm looking for, but thank you for pointing me to this feature.
