    How Do You Find the Latest Threads and Posts on Skadi?

    I'm curious what do you use to search the newest posts on Skadi. Do you use:
    * the top 5 stats from the index,
    * the new posts search
    * the today's posts search
    * do you just scroll down the index page and look at the last post in every section
    * do you check your favourite forums according to your interests
    * do you subscribe to forums or threads and check the user control panel for updates
    or another option?

    I usually go the Top 25, which can be reached by pushing 'Statistics - Top 5'.
    If I have been away from the forum for a while I scroll down to the part that says 'per page' and type in 100, as in 'Top 100', and press the 'display' button.

    I didn't realize the poll was multiple choice. When I first visit the forum, I check the top statistics since they're the first I see. Then I use the new posts link. I don't go back to the index page often because there are too many forums and icons to load. After I'm done replying to this thread, I'll click on new posts if I want to see what's new.

    Well, I guess I´m using the most complicated and conservative method but it has become a habit over the years:

    I scroll down the index page and look at the last post in every section
    In fact, I´m looking into every section by using different tabs and work them trough one after another.

    I find that clicking on 'New Posts' is the quickest way to find threads with new posts. I sometimes click on 'Today's Posts' if I didn't have time to scan over all the new posts in my previous visit of if there was something I wanted to reply to earlier & didn't have time.

    I use new posts,
    but I also check my favorite forums.
    Not only for new threads,
    some old ones are very interesting too.
