If you have Google chrome you can use the developer settings to preview the site as it would be seen on different devices.

This is how it looks on my phone Joe

You can see why I don't like the links showing as they move on to another line

I have to admit, I only use Unanswered and Active..

Why don't you do a Poll to see which out of those 5 people use most and get rid of the least 3?
Just keep the two people use most in the top left..

Or just shorten the words!
Taking out the word "posts" will reduce the word count considerably.
This would be sufficient:

Unanswered | Active ....................... Unread | New | Yours

But now we lost Yours and Unanswered... Even though there is now plenty of space for them!

Gonna be a lot of lonely feeling people as noone will see their unanaswerd posts.

I use "Your Posts" all the time too keep up with topics I'm involved with. Otherwise I have to sift through the Unread/active to find my topics.

Also "New" and "Unread" are so similar, but I never use New because it shows posts I've posted on as "New".
