    Which one do you use more often to navigate the site?

    The idea behind this poll is that on the mobile site, I can either have the circled button serve as a shortcut to Recent Posts or Unread Posts but there isn't room for both. Whichever one isn't assigned to the shortcut will be available by tapping on Menu, which is also where you can find "Mark Forums Read".

    As long as it's possible to shortcut "unread posts" l'm happy.
    It's my 3 shortcut on iPhone favorites list.

    I can't keep up with the number of unread posts and so I choose selectively from the recent thread titles. Seeing how many unread posts there are only reminds me of how little free time I have :boohoo:

    If I've participated in the "recent threads," I like to quickly skim through the "unread posts" and see if there's anything that catches my eye. I find that this is my preferred way to interact with the forum, rather than looking at individual sub-forums.

    I always look at 'Unread Posts'. That way I'm not checking the time of the last postings for each thread and trying to remember when I looked at it.

    I do too but I bookmark it so that's what opens when I first visit the site. For me it is just taking up space in the nav bar.

    That certainly works for me ("unread posts" voter).
