Keeping posts "new" for longer

This forum seems very aggressive about expiring the "new" status of posts.

Many times I will login, read a few posts, and find that everything from "today" is no longer showing as bold. Is there a way to increase that time period?

I could be wrong here, but I think the "new posts" are specific to each individual... it probably uses your user login & cookies from your browser for your return visits... It will be from the last time you were in session on the forums...

Some stuff for sale: M030 S 24mm front sway bar, M030 base 19.6mm rear sway bar, 996 GT3 OEM Porsche Motorsport front strut mounts monoball "camber plates"

WTB: looking for some 5-7mm spacers with extended bolts

couple of things.....

- you can use the 'New Posts' link in the blue bar ~ 1/3 way down to give you a listing of all topics w/ new posts in them including new threads. This way you don't have to open each subforum to see "what's new"

- then if you want to read the post/topic, just middle click on it to open the topic in a new tab (or window if you so like). This works on IE8, Mozilla/Firefox and SRWare Iron, and of course Chrome and I imagine Safari browsers. If you click on the little box w/ a down arrow/carrot next to the topic title, it'll take you to the first new post in the thread since you last read it

Lot's of options to keep you happy
