What does "new" mean anyway?

What does "new" mean anyway?

I was just wondering what the criteria is for the red "new" label?

I have looked at topics that are from 3 months ago and have not had any recent posts that have the label.  Every, or almost every, topic on the front page of a forum seems to have the "new" label.

Re: What does "new" mean anyway?

Okay - I see... "new" means "not marked as read."  Even if I have read the topic, the label is not reset unless I specifically mark it as read. 

Oh- that's very different... never mind!
