@Tom I always encounter this really annoying issue.
I tried to logout, to delete cookies, but it still doesn't work. The new topics are signaled only from the moment I'm on the forum.
Besides, It will be really cool if the new topic information is saved directly in the user account and not on the computer regarding I log in sometimes from my job (so unread topics have already been read on my personal computer).
