    I had an email this morning when I came into work saying that I had a PM to read. First time I ever had one on this site, so I clicked on the link and read the message. Didn't have time to continue browsing the forums, so I logged out. Later, I had time, so I logged in and noticed that for a weekend, there wasn't that much traffic on the site. Then I realized what had happened. Because I had logged in and then logged out to read the PM, it had reset all my new posts. Should it do this? There is another site that I belong to that has the new posts counter, memory, whatever you want to call it set to the specific forum level instead of at the site level. Could something like this be established here? That way, if you only have five minutes, you could check one forum, and then log out without losing the links to the other new threads in the other forums.

    Just thought I would ask...

    Oh, BTW, no matter what, this is still a great site... Oh, and Happy Holidays to everyone...

    Yes, that's exactly the way it's supposed to work -- the feature only keeps track of new posts since you've last logged in. I'm afraid that's the only way vBulletin (and any forum software I've ever seen, actually) does it.
