I would like to read and participate more here, but i am finding it super kludgy to keep clicking next-next-next scrolling thru long topics, and wonder if i am just missing some obvious easier way to: log in, browse to see  which topics have new replies since I last logged in, and jump right to those new replies.

I do know I can follow an individual topic  but then I get deluged with emails every time someone posts in it. What i really want is to log in when i feel like it and easily eyeball what's new and jump to it. Is there a way to do what I want, or are you power users just more patient than I am navigating manually around to see what's new?

The New Posts link at the top of the page should help?

It's fairly easy if you go to the home pages ie the Creative Corner or whatever it's called, as the threads with new posts have (Xnumber New Posts) after the name. Click n go. You can also crosscheck by looking at the hours of the most recent posts on the home pages and then work it from there - click to the page number you left off, on. Or do as thesaura73 suggest, but that's way too organised for me ;)

Yeah, as long as I'm logged in (and why wouldn't I be, I can't see the contest forums if I'm not) if there are new posts on a thread, the title is in bold and there is usually a (X new posts) parenthetical. If I click on the parenthetical it goes straight to the first new post.
