So I guess the purple number in parentheses in the "Posts" column in the main forum view is the number of new/unread posts since your last visit. This seems to be a little buggy, with the numbers sometimes appearing randomly or when I know I've read the posts. Clicking into the forum and then clicking back out/refreshing seems to get them to show appropriately... EXCEPT... for whatever reason, I seem to cosntantly be showing 14 new posts in the Trail Running forum that aren't going away no matter how many times I read the forum???
