Sort Boards by "New"

Would be nice if one could sort the boards by New... it would make it easier for people to see changes, even in threads they are not subscribed to which the two sort orders don't make easy

Mike,
You have control over how the boards sort in your Profile settings.
 
A few things to rememeber
1. Your Board Format may determine your sort settings because you can set them individually for "Threaded" boards vs "Linear" boards.
2. The default sort is "Oldest to Newest/Date Descending"
3. Finally, there is a place to set the "Sort Threads by Newest Message Time" as well.
 
Hope this helps.

But while you can sort by newest post, you can't just sory (even in linier mode) by the "New" field to bring those with changes that you haven't already seen to the top.
 
Sorting by New would mean once you've looked at a thread it wouldn't be at the top, which is useful if you decide you don't want to post to it.

Mike,
We have to strike a balance between ease-of-use and useful features on the community. Remember that not everyone uses the community in the same way and we are trying to strike a happy middle-ground.
 
Have you tried using the "thread float" feature. It is the little vertical arrow on the right that you can click to float a thread to the top of a board.
