If you want to check on replies to posts you've made, you can do that in your UserCP. There's a subscribed list that keeps track of the posts you reply to or new topics that you start.
And . . .
On the main forum page, if you scroll down to the bottom, you will see the latest posts (most recent)
The most viewed, etc.
In the front office above the introductions, you'll see an introduction to the Mod and Admin team here. You can PM any of us with questions and we'll help you. We also have titles under our usernames for quick reference.
