View new posts -- request to show threads with own posts
 
Hello :)

Following the recent change, when I click "View new posts" it does not show threads that I have just posted in or threads that I have just started.

Having lived with this for a while I am now convinced it would be more convenient if these threads were listed.

For my new threads it would confirm that they had been posted.

For existing threads I have just posted in it would give a similar confirmation and an easy way to re-open in case I want to change what I have just posted (all too common!).

Also the behaviour would then match the description better -- "View new posts" could be expected to show all threads with posts up to the cut off time (which arguably would be better as the time I last clicked "View new posts" but that is a separate issue).

Best

Charles

Yes Chris :)

But that is a whole one extra click away!

As it shouldn't - they are not new as they have already been viewed.

When you post a new thread you are immediately taken to that thread (although new threads should *never* just get lost - have you ever had this happen?).

This is the same as above - you are already given a confirmation and changing what you have just posted is only a click of the edit button away.

No, the description is "new", which the new functionality certainly better suits. If you'd like "show all threads with posts up to the cut off time" then "View Latest Posts" is probably better suited.
