Newest posts is a list the most recent 30 posts. This is a handy feature. However, traffic on this forum seems to be increasing. How about listing the posts by date instead of the top 30? Or else increase the count of newest posts beyond 30.
I find the best way to see the latest replies is by clicking 'New Topics' at the top of the board, Stemturtle. This shows up all the latest threads which have been replied to. It's much easier to navigate and less confusing.
