There used to be “List of active posts” (the name was something like this, not exactly this) on old Eventide’s forum. Almost every forum has something like that. One may scan all new posts despite the section it belongs to. So, if one wants to know what is new on the whole forum topics, he has it together on one or more pages. Does not have to go to Section1, then Section2, then Section3.
Maybe that this new forum has this feature and I do not see it.
