    The new method really helps me not miss old posts. If I view the forum and don't read every single post, I never see them with the old method. That always bugged me, so the new method gets my vote.

    I don't use the "Today's Posts" function and I have not noticed any difference otherwise.

    So I voted "don't care".

    I don't use the"today's post" function either, and since nothing else changed I fall under "I don't care".

    And not caring is in the lead! I love how the second I voted for the new database, I changed my mind to the old one. Lol.

    I noticed a difference since the change and voted for the old method.

    I dont like the new feature at all. If possible, please make it work the way it was before. I use the "new posts" feature (especially when re-visiting after longer time period) and sometimes i miss the dividing line and end up checking topics I have been through and had decided not to read them. I like new things, but only when they work in the name of progress:-)

    Agreed. I go to "New posts" to see what's happened since the last time, not to see all the things I didn't read last time.
