    Every time I see a closed thread because someone started the same thing in multiple places I wonder if what gets written is true. It always says that veterans of A to Z use the NEW links underneath where our name is on the top right of the page. I have never used those links and instead go to the 2 or 3 categories I post in to see what is new there. I was just curious as to what others actually do?

    I hit "All Posts". I think it takes too much time to go into individual categories.

    I go to all posts as well. There's no point in duplicating posts in several categories since you can see all posts under "all posts."

    I use all new posts. It's the quickest way to see what's going on.

    I looked at it for the first time and its nice and all, but then you have to look over to see what category things are in and there could be multiple pages of new threads to look through. I guess since I only look at 2 or 3 different categories its no big deal to me to bounce back and forth between those.

    I use "All Posts" unless I've been away from the site for a couple days. Then I go into the categories I want to check so it's easier to sift through.

    I use "All Posts" and don't tend to pay too much attention to which sub-forum something is posted in.

    I use all posts but then look at each post title and category to see if it is something that interests me.

    I don't click ALL POSTS because I generally only go to a few sections, so it's not time consuming. I individually go to where I started a thread (I spot the blue check mark by the topic thread), plus the threads w/ new posts are bolded.
