How to see all new postings since last visit
Many forums have a feature...
"See all new postings since your last visit"
Clicking this shows you any new posting regardless of which "sub-forum" it may have been posted to.
I think this is very helpful as some one who is mostly active in the... say... Propagation Forum may have an answer for someone who posted a question to some other forum.
Plus... many of the "sub-forums" seem like they only experience occasional activity... and maybe this is because the overall GardenWeb forum is so finely sub-divided
So my suggestions are...
1 - Add the feature to "see all new postings since my last visit"
2 - Narrow the number of sub-forums or categories so the activity level in each forum is higher.
(then folks with an interest in a narrow topic can use the search feature to search across sub-forums for their particular interest)
If feature number one is already available and I just missed it... maybe you should make it more obvious so it hits me in the face :-)
