Each member may have their own personal preferences for what they want to find. If they are looking for answers, this may be less helpful. If they are looking to provide answers or comment, then it is the better option.In that case I think it might be better to have the 'Looking for Replies' tab promoted to its place - surely that's more important?
New should be displaying ones you have not viewed yet. The other section "looking for replies" may include threads you have previously viewed, but have no replies.That's how I have my New page set up. I couldn't be sure but I think the posts I found under Looking for Replies were not in New. I'll keep an eye on it.
