How do you browse the forums?


Well-known member
Just kind of a question and curiosity but how do you currently browse the forums?

No i don't mean Firefox or Internet Explorer... but when you sign onto XenForo do you click "What's New", or do you check your news feed? Or are you aimlessly browsing every single topic through every category? Any other way?

I myself am a loyal What's New browser, I like to find certain topics that I can easily weed out :D.

Always mark Test/Bug reports as read, then What's New, open up every link on the page, go to next page, read links from first page, then repeat on each sequential page, check What's New again, open new links, and mark read if I've read all the ones I don't ignore.

  1. Check the Alerts tab and read all the updated threads and quoted posts.
  2. Check the Watched Threads, just in case I missed any update in the Alerts tab
  3. Mark the Off Topic and Test Messages forums as read.
  4. Hit What's New
  5. Read threads that interest me
  6. Goto step 4 :D
in that order, yeah!
