    I didn't check anything, because I really don't know...Whenever I log in, I always go to "New Posts"...I would say I visit the model forums a lot more than I do the prototype ones...But basically, I just kinda go with the flow! :p

    Do not go to "new posts" rather, I usually go to General first, than to the forums I'm responsible for, then to N, then on to any others that I'm interested in. I guess I never got use to to going to "new posts" being on other forums where I would only go to the threads and sub-forums that I was interested or involved in and I'd ignore the "new posts" there as well. Too old to change my nasty ways now...:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    New Posts for me too, But I never read all the new posts. Just the ones I'm interested in or catch my eye. So I picked the ones in the poll I am most inclined to look at.

    I'm another "New posts".

    I didn't even know some of those categories existed. Usually when I visit, I only check the forum to make sure I'm not making an idiot of myself by giving HO advice to the N and G modellers.

    Ditto on the "new Posts" thing, i just skim the topics and read the ones that catch my eye, half the time I never know what forum I'm in unless it's obvious (like a "I need a N-Scale Geep!" type thing).

    Me 2.
    I also keep a list of threads in an email folder that were interesting but maybe haven't had much recent activity. That way if I want to find them fast or to update them I don't have to dig into the old thinkbox (which is getting harder to do all the time :rolleyes: ) to remember where they are.

    I go to new posts because I've theoretically read everything I was interested in the last time, so I want to see what is new. Sometimes a thread will be of interest to me even if it's the wrong guage or something I would not look at normally. I'm another Newbee who didn't even realize that all those forums existed, but maybe I'll go look at them when time permits and learn something new.

    Actually, I simply click on "New Posts" and start there.

    Most of the time I end up in the N Scale area, or Scratchin' and Bashin', LOL
    Recently I have been studying "Robin At His Best", trying to learn from a Master.

    I go to the forums I moderate first, then up to General talk, and on to those that interest me. There are forums I usually avoid, simply because I have no interest in the particular subject matter. I will stop in occasionally just to see if there's anything that might be of interest.
