Post subject:  How to easily find what's new

Greetings Listeners and DJs,

If you're new to the forums, or perhaps even been around a while, it is easy to see that we have prolific over the past 10 years. This means when you first sign in, there is a whole lot of material marked as unread. You likely are more interested in new happenings, and would like to know where there is truly something new going on, be it a request for cover in the DJ forums, or the announcement of an upcoming contest or event. This can all be made easy with a few functions available in the forums.
These two are your biggest friends:

You unfortunately have to use the "Mark Topics Read" in the individual forums as it is not available from the 'View Unread Posts" screen. Viewing Unread Posts will let you see everything that is new to you. You will see that the posts also indicate in what topic forum they reside. Once you've read everything that interests you in that topic, you can use the Mark Topics Read for the rest of them, kind of like a save-point for when you come back to the forums. If you intend to read through the long archives, you can instead View New Posts for what is new since your last visit, whether you've already read them or not.

If there is a category (Announcements or Contests) that you'd like notification of when there is a new post, you can hit Subscribe Forum when you are in that category. If you'd like to keep tracks of a particular conversation, you can bookmark it for easy reference, or subscribe to it for notification of new posts.

So now you can get rid of the clutter in your forum "in-box" and have quick access to all the newest information.
