    Do you:
    Scan “new posts?”
    Scan “recent posts?”
    Open “Forums?”
    Open your “flag”? (upper right corner)
    Get email notified for “replies” and/or “likes?”
    All of the above?
    Some other way?

    First, the flag, to check for quotes/replies
    Second, New Posts
    Once in awhile, into one of the "Forums".....but only if I'm looking for something specific.

    Never on the email notifications. I get too many emails as it is.

    You didn't ask, but as for medium....iPad in the early morning, late evening, and weekends. During the work day, PC.

    Except I do read the forum on my phone if I’m out, but rarely reply that way.

    Flags First
    New Posts Second
    Anything is fair game after that.
    Viewed from my phone mostly during the week, tablet in the evenings or laptop when I have it up and running.
    The emails only lets me know that someone has commented on a thread I'm watching. But, I usually catch those before I get the email. ( I might be spending way too much time here:confused:)

    Like Bodia :
    First the flags, then the new posts. After I have open a window for each post I will read, I don't forget to "Mark forum Read".

    New posts if I have time.
    Mark everything read and bail.

    Usually on my iPad. On my PC if I have to upload new photos to my web site (I don’t trust any third party photo hosts with my stuff).

    "New Posts", or, if I don't have time, I just check the notifications if I have any.
