There's a legend at the bottom of each forum page explaining what each means. What I do is make this site one that I visit maybe 2-3 times a week at minimum. When I log in (which is done automatically when I navigate to TnB), the colored icons next to the forums as well as the threads tell me what's new since my last visit. I've yet to see the new posts list exceed one page of threads. Combine that with the way they want us to title the thread with country, store, deal, etc and it's really pretty simple to find what you're looking for. The only way they could make it easier is if they emailed each pertinent deal to the appropriate person (which is ridiculous).
I am, Possum, but again, there are plenty of Topics I am not interested in and the issue is finding the specific Topic in whatever forum there is some news item about. Sometimes the Forum Search is useful, sometimes it's too broad.
Right now I'm in the Sales and Deals Forum, is there some way to set it to view what's new here since I last logged in? I've searched and I'm not seeing such a thing.
What would be great, is if it's an online deal that there be a link directly to it (yes, I know TnB wants people to wander the forums), like for the Lego Atlantis Portal on Amazon for $69.99. While this one was easy to search for on Amazon as I've looked at it a dozen times fighting the urge not to spend money I don't have, I don't know if other reported deals come and go within minutes or hours, since when I check Amazon, I rarely see these discounts that get posted on the news pages.
I see, after about 36 hours up there, the Atlantis Portal is now $84.99.
