Lately, there has been some discrepancy between number of "new questions/comments posted" in MetaTalk, and what I'm seeing highlighted on the page as new questions or comments. Until now, it hasn't been such
a big difference to really annoy me, but at the moment, I see "There has been 1 new question and 12 comments posted since your last visit", but only two threads are highlighted as having new comments (one each).

in metatalk only, once i visit "x new" for a thread (or even just the top of a thread), returning to metatalk wipes out any "x new" comment notices that had been listed before.

Would it be possible to add a "There have been X new threads and Y new comments on MetaTalk since your last visit" to the MetaFilter page?

This is less a bug and more of a question about an inconsistency between MetaFilter and MetaTalk. Namely, that the new posts (i.e., 53 comments (3 new)) announcement is a link to the new posts on MeFi but not on MeTalk. Why the difference?

Should there be/is there a New Comments display feature on Metatalk? If there is, is it linked to my logging into MeFi's home page? I never see the white (# new) notation in here, although it works just fine on Metafilter itself.

As near as I can tell, the sort-to-top on the Metatalk front is by new threads, not new comments. Which is fine. However, I would like some kind of flag to know if a category (such as "weblog grab bag) has new comments since the last time I was here. It wouldn't have to be detailed. I'm thinking along the lines of a "new comments" column next to each category on the front page, with a yes/no value.
Or whatever, you're the designer I'm the one who thought black and neon green was a good color scheme.
