    I'm certainly missing out on HYS, but the 'Whats New' option isn't in the options. Does that mean What's New is now limited only to 'New Threads' in all the forums?

    What if I want to see updated threads?

    Use "New Threads" instead

    Right, but what about updated threads?

    Nothing has changed other than the name -- which is now consistent with a) the page it actually took you to and b) what it actually does.

    I prefer what's new myself, I assume we can change the phrase if we wish?

    Of course. It's just a phrase. Embrace change though ;)

    LOL Thanks Chris, but I prefer What's New - it's a friendlier term than "New threads" Which I find boring.

    So not about Change, just the wordage.

    Yes, it is the same thing painted a different colour. Change the colour if you like the other colour!

    Having used it for a short while I'm actually getting used to (and seeing the benefit of) the separation; I can see my usage pattern changing to a) checking watched threads (to catch up with previous conversations where I left off) - then b) checking new threads. (y)

    My issue with New Threads is down simply to how my brain works :D New Threads to me suggests brand new threads... not new replies to existing threads.

    Yep me too. In fact shame there isnt a separate link to genuinely new ...

    It is more like "Updated Threads" or "New posts in threads", the thread itself could not be new

    "Updated Thread" would be the most appropriate title.

    You have the opposite problem then.

    "Updated Thread" suggests that it's existing threads that have been updated whereas it will also contain New Threads.

    How about "Unread Threads"? It's how it's described anyways: "These are all unread threads from XenForo Community." ...

    TBH I think if you want to rename it, then "What's New?" is probably going to be the most appropriate phrase - it's content agnostic. (y)

    Except the page isn't content agnostic...
