I am curious about how the "View New Content" works. Yea, I know, push the button! No, actually it is a little different that that. 99% of the time that is what I select after I log in. I like to see the new stuff and I always scroll down through looking for the stars to see stuff I looked at before. This seems to be an efficient way to view the most posts and catch up on older posts I have been involved in. I then check my posts just out of general principle. Now it would seem to me that this should be unnecessary, because new posts to any prior post should come up on new contest. However I find that this is not necessarily so.
So, I guess my question is what are the parameters that "View New Content" uses to select what it shows you?
