I'm a hand-loader guy, but am always curious about stokers, chimney issues, coal quality etc. Everything about burning coal interests me. So the new catagories are more of a hindrance to quick surfing than a help.
Each visit you only have to look for the yellow icon next to a category or post to see if there is anything new.
If you see this it means there is something new, once you view a topic it will go back to white. If you have viewed all the new posts or there are no new ones it will be plain. Note: if you use the back button on your browser this will not happen, instead use the breadcrumb trail to the top left of the table (NEPA Discussion Forum Index -> Polls) Clicking NEPA Discussion Forum Index will take you to the the main index, clicking polls will take you to the polls.
Even easier when you first get here on the main index to the top right of the table is a few other links such as the "view new posts". Clicking that will bring up a list of any new topics or topics with new replies since your last visit.
I'm also workin on a newsletter type e-mail you'll be able to subscribe to. you won't even have to come here, you can just have all the new posts e-mailed to you on a daily/weekly basis if you want.
