Since it seems a few people don't look at Last Posts, I wondered how members were checking for new content.

Feel free to mark all that apply.

Since the "New" icon doesn't work unless you constantly mark all forums read, I tend to just go the old fashioned way and go through the forums. I look at what is new and what is being posted in, and if I can add something, I do.

I use the Last Posts and then mark all of my forms read. It's the easiest way for me. Takes less time.

I always check Last Posts. It's the only way I know if I'm answering something or not. Then I mark everything read, and I'm done until the next time.

This is basically what I do. Then I mark the forums read one by one as I read through them.

Last posts all the way.

Marking them as old is sometimes useful, but usually I'm too lazy, so I just check last posts.

Mark All Forums Read.

Then all the new ones have a NEW beside it. Simple!

What the hell is up with the poll? I put like 5 options and when it posted it left one out. And now when I've come back to check it the first option just read "Check" as opposed to "Check Last Posts."

I think I was inspired to ask this when someone wrote something like, "I didn't even know there was a button for that" after I mentioned the Last Posts link at the top.

Well, I was also wondering why some threads would get passed up while others got a lot of traffic.

I go through all of the forums the old fashioned way, and then usually mark that specific forum read and continue on through.

When I'm waiting impatiently for a response to a specific thread, I might refresh Last Posts about a hundred times until it posts.

I usually post whenever it's on the top.
To keep my account in stable condition but no need to worry about it here.
Most likely the same with other boards.

I use the mark forum read or mark all forums read links. It makes it easy. I look at the forums I want to and mark them as read, then hit mark all to clear the others. Easy as pie...or cake.

I was curious as to who clicked the 'Other' button, and what they do instead of the above listed things.

Last posts is convenient, but simply refreshing the board and having a 'New' icon pop up is easier, in my opinion. Checking Last Posts is something I do when I'm not logged in, too. The New icons are a bot messed up until you log in. I think they display everything new if it posted in the last hour.

I click "Mark All Forums Read" because I'm too lazy to click "Last Posts".

I have to check every interesting forum for actually new stuff. Those NEW stickers that never go away don't go away automatically are sooo annoying.

Probably because I'm not used to continually marking forums read. All the other forums I go to have the NEW stickers go away when you read a unread thread, automatically.
