Hi BM,
Some time ago the times of the posts were presented by date&time even the new ones.
Now it changed and new posts are presented with: 7 minutes ago, 5 hours ago and so on.
I liked much better the previous way, because now I have no idea if its a new message or not. Did I refreshed the screen and "5 minutes ago" are 5 minutes ago or the screen is opened from yesterday and "5 minutes ago" are something else.

Thanks,
Baruch

When a new post is in a thread that you haven't seen yet, the top of the thread will have a link "View first unread post". It's near top of the thread, below the summary.

You can also click 'New Posts' button top of any page on the nav bar.

Hi Mike,
Every time I enter your forum I go to "New Posts". The problem comes from the following situation:
If I didn't visit the forum for a few days there are a lot of posts. If I don't read them at once and then click on "New Posts" again then its difficult to find the unread or looked at posts. There are other situations too.
The simple fact is that date&time are absolute values and "... ago" are relative. Its like you don't ask to fill your age on sites, but your birth day. One is relative and one absolute.

Thanks,
Baruch

New Posts reflects posts made within the last 2 weeks or so. Each time you click New Posts, it will update and show you unread posts.

Yes, the dates are relative when posts are 24 hours old or less. Dates are absolute when posts are older than 24 hours.
