Now, if I understand this right, there's no way to mark posts read, correct? So every time you visit you have to scroll down until you figure out where you left off?

And how do I figure out which threads have new posts? The light bulbs go on by the "forums" to tell me, but when I go to the threads, there's nothing that indicates that a particular thread has a new post, unless I am missing something (quite possible, since I am finding it difficult to read this board -- the type is WAY too small!).

PLEASE tell me I've overlooked something here!!!
