If the "what's new" is a new comment buried deep in the weeds, it seems that a lot of clickity-clacking and checking of dates is required to find it.
...and, apparently, it's easy to screw it up and miss something, at least for me.
Sometimes, the "what's new" turns out to be nothing... a new name and date pushes the item to the top, but nothing new at all is found after searching through the weeds.
...it's gotta be easier than that, what am I missing?
(at this point, it would be fair to extoll the virtues of the old NNTP forums where the client software made new comments impossible to miss, with nary a false positive)

I'm afraid I don't have a good answer for you. The OSQA software basically marks a posting as having changed whenever anything happens to it, and the main page sorts by "most recently changed". But "changed" includes any comment posted, edited, or deleted, so if someone deletes their comment, the thing that changed is gone so unless you happen to have seen the comment before it was deleted and notice that it's now gone, it's not always possible to know what caused the "change".
