      I am not sure what you mean with either of those questions- can you clarify for me a little bit what it is that you're looking for / having trouble with? We don't have supporters / premium memberships or anything like that here. All of our features are free for everyone.

      ok cool i thought that but wasn't quite sure

      basicly i can't find anything to do with posts since my last visit, or new threads etc?
      the FAQ mentioned something about a drop down menu? i can't find it

      the drop down menu for quick links on the forum home page isn't present, so I can't find the new posts.

      I'm still not totally sure what you're asking about, to be honest.

      If you want a link to show all new posts since you last visited, we don't have one of those. The reason is because our forums are just so big that if we did have one, and people clicked it regularly, the load on our database while compiling that list for every click would be so large that it would bog things right down.

      What we do have is a list of "subscribed threads" for each user. Any time you post in a thread here, it automatically subscribes you to that thread. Then, next time you come back, you can check all of your subscribed threads for new posts. You do this by clicking on the "My Settings" menu in the upper right corner of the forum window, and then clicking on "Subscribed Threads." I am attaching a picture to this post that shows the menu and the option circled in red. I hope that helps you out!
