Difference between New Threads / All Recent Messages


Well-known member
I apologize if this has been answered, I tried to search for an answer.

Is it redundant and/or confusing that the "New Threads" page also has a "All Recent Messages" link on the right side of the page? Don't they provide the same result, or shouldn't they?

I understand that "New Threads" link in 1.2 is the"What's New" in ptr 2.3, but the URL for "All Recent Messages" is different and sometimes provides different results.

EDIT: Ok, it appears that "New Threads" only includes messages that you haven't seen, while All Recent Messages, as the name suggests, includes all new content, including threads you've participated in.
