Hey,

Wanna do: be informed about _all_ forum postings, either a new topic or a new reply for one of the already existing topics

Way #1: bookmarking http://ectos.darkbb.com/search.forum?search_id=newposts . it helps but if you get a new email notification about a post in one of your topics, and you click the link, your last date timestamp gets reset. You might miss some new topics.

Way #2: RSS. It only seems to show new topics and not replies for topics.

Are there other, better ways?

Thanks!

Pink balls got you down?

Why try to get creative? Just open the damn forums and see which forums/threads have pink ecto balls next to them.

Isn't that the same as the "new posts since last visit", and thus they also got reset when I just click on the link in the notification e-mail?

Or, do you mean ditching the notification e-mails altogether? That actually might be a good idea.

No, I mean actually bookmark the forums index and see which forums/threads next to them have the ecto colored in pink. That means 'new post'. That's the whole point.

I never saw a need to check the forums any other way than just checking the damn forums.

Yes, I know what you mean.

What I wanted is more in the sense that I always get notified about new posts, so I don't need to check manually. Though it's not a big deal, so I'll go pink-ecto-way (PEW).
