    Is there a way to do a "new posts" but for watched forums only? Don't point me at alerts/emails (too noisy) -- I want to hit a link and have it show all the new posts in the forums I care about like I used to be able to do. Thanks!

    I've been using the equivalent to the "watched threads" for a while now. Extra step to go one by one through the threads, but once your current post pointer is established correctly, it works reasonably well.

    yeah that's exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I have enough watched forums that having to go into each of them is kludgy and time consuming. Before, I just had one list of all posts that crossed all forums I was interested in.

    ugh and that shows if there's new posts in SUB forums (that I don't watch), too. Not good.

    I haven't yet found a way to do this cleanly. I want to avoid the alerts dialog if possible - but there's a way to have alerts send for any post in a forum (and you can exclude subforums), it's just not very clean.
