    Hi. Little request, not sure if possible. The way I'd like to see it work is that after I open and subsequently close a sub-forum, it clears the new posts regardless of whether or not i've read them.
    Reasoning: There are some post/threads i am just not interested in. However, each time i visit the site it shows there is new activity even when there really is not any. Any possible way to fix this?

    I think I need to adjust the NEW flag criteria. I'll take a look - thanks for pointing that out.

    One thing you can do is click the "Mark Forums Read" in the upper left menu. That way only NEW things should be marked NEW when you re-visit.

    I checked - there isn't way to adjust the expiration timing of the NEW flag. Marking all threads READ is the way to clear them.
