"Forum Contains New Posts" indicator not working properly?

On other forums, I there is a always a nice visual indicator that there are new posts in a specific forum. Over here, I do see an icon that says “Forum Contains New Posts”, but it is not shown for all forums that have new posts. Instead it is only shown for forums that also have an indication in the topics column that there are new topics. The posts column does not have an indication for the number of new posts.

In the topic list within a forum, the new post (in a normal or hot topic) indicator does work, and there is also the “updated” indicator in the topic column, which indicates that the information is available.

Right now, I can only guess which forums have new posts by trying to remember when I checked the specific forum for the last time and comparing the date. The other option would be to open all the forums that I’m interested in, and check for updated topics. But that is a lot slower and probably causes more load on the site.

Am I the only one that has this issue? Is there any way I can fix it (changing account settings or something like that).

11 views in 1 week. I wonder whether that’s a record…

I sometimes do that, but as far as I know, it’s not possible to filter forums there (could be a nice feature). And often there are a lot of posts on subjects I’m not that interested in, especially when I haven’t checked to forum in a while. But it might work better when I’m checking more often, I’ll give it another try, thanks.
