New Topics list

What do you think to add a New Topics function?

To add:
"View new topics" link/option:
  • on click will display a page where we can find only all new topics that have been written from the user's last visit (chronological)
To change:
"View new posts" option:
  • on click will display a page that contains only the new posts, not new topics

"New posts" already includes new topics. Why separate them?

Also this is not an RFC so moved it to discussion.

Sorry for that. In this moment, "View new posts" displays new and unread topics and posts. As the name says, should contain only the new posts.
posts = messages in the topics
topics = new discussion subjects

"View unread posts" also displays the unread posts which weren't read by the user in previous sessions.
Clicking "View new posts" will display a page that contains only the new posts, not new topics
Clicking "View new topics" will display a page that contains only the new topics, not new posts.
It's a significant difference!

Yes but one can also say that they posted a new topic so they still seem to be closely related.
