"View New Posts" is Redundant
#1
With all of the new activity lately, it was a satisfying feeling to need the "View New Posts" button. After clicking it however, I was surprised to find not only all of the results from "View Today's Posts" but stuff that's even older than that by a few hours.

Is this supposed to happen? The last time I used the "View New Posts" button, It only showed posts that where two hours old. This in itself made it a little bit useless because I personally would prefer for the "View New Posts" to show posts from the last 4-8 hours.

   

   

EDIT: ??? For some reason the "View New Posts" button is working as expected again. The screen shots were taken around 6:30 eastern time.

I sometimes speak in pink and Ranger sometimes speaks in blue (if it's unmarked and colored assume it's Ranger). He loves to chat.

The point of View New Posts is to see all new topics and/or posts created since your last visit. Today's Posts just means that you're looking at everything posted in the last 24 hours (from when you clicked the menu link).

Once I logged out and logged back in, everything was deleted and refreshed to "no new posts available". I thought that the "View New Posts" button just showed everything since the last 2 hours.

Thank you for answering my question!

Finally it's explained. I figured it meant unread posts, but it was very inconsistent. Mystery solved.

View New Posts has never worked for me personally, and I think it tends to mislead. Just browse by Board if you've been gone for a while or View Today's Posts if you haven't.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

I use the "New posts" button more on my puyocenter.forumotion.com forum, since I mod things and have to see everything that went on. I kinda already knew how it worked...
