Every time I visit the Photo.net forums, when I view the page that shows all the forums, next to each forum it lists a figure which I think is supposed to be the number of new threads. For example, under the "Photography Equipment Forums" header, the first entry is "Alternative Cameras" and next to that it says "1 New". It has said that for the past two weeks, but the most recent thread appears to be from June 20th. My experience with other forums has been that new threads or threads with new posts are highlighted in some way, and there's also usually an option to 'mark all read' so that on a subsequent visit, you can easily tell what forums / which threads have had some activity. Sorry if this is all very obvious, I did try searching but my search-fu does not seem to be up to the task. So my question is, what does the "# New" actually refer to, and can I reset it from visit to visit so that I can see if there's really been any new activity or not? Or have I completely missed something obvious on how this all works? Thank you! p.s. incase it makes a difference, I have observed the same behavior while using both an iMac running 10.6.8 & Safari browser, and an iPad with Mobile Safari browser.
