I vote 3, get rid of “New Topics” altogether and just show the 15-20 most recent posts.
At the moment, all the entries in “New Topics” also appear in “Most Recent Posts”, which I imagine to be a fairly usual state of affairs.
If you really want to highlight the newness of a topic, colour it green for the first couple of days, or something.
All the best,

3, more of both.09/03/2015 at 05:36 #19367Norm SParticipant
It is fine as it is for now, it strikes a balance between the volume of new posts and the live ones generating the most interest.
I prefer the latest answer list, but see a value in the new posts list to make sure I get everything, I know I might have missed things had it been otherwise.09/03/2015 at 06:45 #19372paintpigParticipant
Latest post usually covers anything new, I think increasing the number of latest post and leaving new posts is a good idea. Having said that I’m pretty easy… ooooer missus

I realise it’s not a poll option, so apologies for that, but I agree with John D Salt, only my suggestion would be a Top 40 of most recent posts 😉09/03/2015 at 10:47 #1938509/03/2015 at 11:56 #19387irishserbParticipant
I’m happy with the current format, though can see lengthening the lists as the forums get busier.09/03/2015 at 13:31 #19393James RiveraParticipant
I also like having both as I’m equally interested in seeing if there was a new post to a thread I had previously read as I am seeing what new threads have been started. And as several others have said, I’d really like to see a lot longer list (40-ish) of each would be a great start. I typically check in once each day and if the list was long enough to catch all the new activity in 24 hours I’d be a very happy camper!
Sorry, my input didn’t really match your poll, but really appreciate you asking us for input.09/03/2015 at 13:42 #19395

Are you aware you can subscribe to topics to be made aware of that, there is no need for the list?09/03/2015 at 17:12 #19397JJ ParusParticipant
I’d prefer both, even though I know I can subscribe. Just personal preference11/03/2015 at 00:46 #19473James RiveraParticipant
Are you aware you can subscribe to topics to be made aware of that, there is no need for the list?
I was aware of the ability, but hadn’t given it a try. I know this might sound silly, but I’m usually a little leery of anything that increases the # of emails I get, your right though it would definitely cover me for threads I wanted to follow. I’ll give subscribing a try! Thanks for the suggestion, and I guess that leaves my vote for a longer list of New Topics then.12/03/2015 at 08:06 #19552CerdicParticipant
I haven’t used the subscribe feature because I don’t check email as often as I used to. It seems to be used less these days and I get more spam and crap than in the past!
I would therefore be in favour of an increased ‘latest post’ list. As John D Salt said, most of the ‘new topics’ list is usually also in the latest posts list.
