I don't know about others but often my first port of call when logging in is the recent posts. Personally I feel this could be improved and I have a couple of suggestions.

First: I'm not keen on the "reset" of all the recent posts every 24 hours. If I log in immediately after this reset I can't see any recent posts.

Second: When reviewing the recent posts I don't want to scroll through page after page of the same topic. I've just logged in for the first time today and have 21 pages to look through. Lots of pages compared to the number of topics.

My suggestion is to have "hot topics" as opposed to "recent posts", a list of all the threads, author, last poster and time since last post, where if the time since last post exceeds 24 hours it is dropped. You wouldn't see each individual post.

Sorry - should say that the main window doesn't reset but if you click on recent forum posts then it does.
