1) The "New Posts" search link. At several other vBulletin based sites I use there is a very prominant "View New Posts" link across the top tool bar. One click and there they are. AFAIK it's not a difficult thing to do with the software and, if necessary, I can even ask exactly how it's done if the site owner doesn't know how already. In any case, I would really appreciate the convenience of such a button. 2)"Mark Forums As Read"--not quite as big of a deal, but similar to #1. Once I 'view new posts' and read the ones that interest me I then want to wipe the slate clean. This, again, requires accessing a totally different dropdown menu. While I think most people use other VBulletin based forums and probably know how to find such things, it's a tool used multiple times daily by forum frequenters. Give me the choice and I'd immediately ditch the "User CP", "Calendar" (does ANY forum actually use that feature?), and "Members" buttons and replace with the two above. If buttons are for frequent use and convenience then why not put the links/features that are actually most used in the most prominant and convenient positions? Not a deal breaker, but a suggestion that would make the site a bit more user friendly for all.
