    Would there be interest in a "New Post Last 7 Days" link in the navigation area? I am new here but like to read most current threads. There are times when work or travel make it so I miss several days of posts and I feel this would be an easy way to catch up. Thanks for all the great posts, MM

    Its actually a pretty standard feature on most VB style forums. I really dont like the 24 and 48 hour thing. If you go for a day or two and cant get on you miss out on stuff. The standard VB feature is just "New Posts" and it shows pages and pages of threads that have been posted in and you have not opened. That way you come on after even more then a week and you still dont miss anything..

    That is a very good option. It has worked well on other forums. MM

    I'm all for it. As it is, on long boating weekends, I come back and do 48 hours and then search under my name for stuff I was already involved in.

    I agree. I'd like to see this feature as well. When traveling, it is too hard to keep up and 48 hrs is not a long enough period to stay current.

    I do the same thing. I'd definitely go for the 7 days if it's possible

    I would prefer either new post or last 7 days as we often are on the road and don't alway get online some weekends.
