    sometimes I use this when I have nothing else to do and just want to see what people are talking about. The weirdness is that the number of results changes every time I click. Sometimes there's 20 listings. Sometimes 13. Sometimes 10. Sometimes 19. You get the picture. Any rhyme or reason to it? Or am I just to slow to figure it out on my own? (entirely possible ;))

    I always figured it had to do with how many posts had changed within a certain time frame, like 15 minutes or so. So more activity means more changed posts.

    AFAICT, it's based on how many new posts came in since you last visited the forums and checked posts. If I check it very couple of hours or so it's around 30, but after a busy day it could be over 100.

    When you're in the forums, there's a menubar at the top. The 5th point from the left is the New posts "button".
