In another board I go to, there is a button that allows you to "Mark Topics Read". Basically, if you go into the forum and see that none of the current threads are of interest to you, you can "Mark Topics Read". This allows you to save time from going back into forums that you've already checked.
Check the 'Quick Links' drop list, in the upper-right corner.
