I dont know if it's just the way I think, but after using the "View Unread Posts" option on other forums, I find it a lot easier to check on the newer happenings on a forum.

If I just use the New Posts button, and get interrupted, I miss out on all the potential gold that has been now marked as Not New.

Dunno how hard it would be to add this, but it would be nice.
