    hey guys,
    i'm new to this kind of forum and i was wondering if there were shortcuts that i didn't know about.

    first, is there a way to go to the first "unread" post in a thread? for instance, now, whenever i revisit a thread, i end up at the OP and then have to scroll down to the first post i haven't seen yet. i'm on a bbs board and there is a link you click on that takes you to the first post you haven't read.

    second, what exactly is "tracking?" i clicked on a couple of threads to "track" them, thinking maybe i would get emails alerting me to posts, but i don't get emails, and, as far as i can tell, when i click on them, they're handled the same way as just clicking on the "see posts you've made" link.

    anyone?

    this board seems a little cumbersome...

    This is a homebrew forum. So it lacks a lot of functionality and usefulness you see on other internet forums.

    The "Track This" button is essentially a bookmark feature. You can track/bookmark your favorite threads. So that the next time you log in, you can just display only the threads you bookmarked.
