How do you access/search for new posts to comment on?

Do you sort by newest post/newest comments?
Search by topic?
Something else?

I see people discussing posts/threads that I have never seen on my main page so I'm curious.

Most often I search by Newest Comments so I can focus on threads that have some activity. If nothing there interests me, I'll go back to the list of categories and click on each topic that interests me and, again, sort by Newest Comments.

Even doing that, I come across many threads with several comments that I didn't see in the three days prior.

A couple of ways: Search by topic and comb through them until I find something that floats my boat.
And, When I see a reply I think warrants a closer look into the person that wrote it I then look through their posts to find something interesting.

The second way is my preferred way. Thus, 'follow' and that way the post come to me.

I check out my notifications first, and post stuff I've found on other sites. Then I look at new member activity. And IF it isn't time to go to work or bed and I have nothing more pressing to do, then I will look at older posts. Yeah, I need to get a life.

You and me both! ☺ l keep telling myself tl stay away or just leave this site altogether, but l can't seem to do that.

I'm still checking out notifications fron 3 days ago. They seem to come in faster than I can clear them.

@Petter Sometimes it seems so!

@Petter I changed my notifications to only "Replied to," "Tagged you," or "Commented on."

Notifications from "Likes" and "Visited Your Profile" are too cluttering.

@BlueWave I don't have profile visits, but I do have likes active. Maybe I'll get rid of those until I have caught up my backlog. Thanks.

I usually go by newest, but have noticed the same thing.
Usually, it's a rather interesting post, as well and I have no idea how I missed it.

Unfortunately there is no universal measure of "interesting", otherwise I would be able to select that as a filter.
Unfortunately, I do not find posts on "celebrity" pop music, for example, to be interesting although no doubt they are to some others.

@Petter meh
