Religion: Protestant Convert to Catholicism
Default New Feature Proposal

At present, there is an icon on each thread which indicates those threads in which I have posted a comment.

Unfortunately, if I post early in a thread (say post #5) and there are 350 posts after mine, I still see that same icon even though I may no longer be interested in following the thread.

What OUGHT to happen is that when I log on, I see an icon next to each thread in which someone has responded to my post by quoting it.

This way, I would be able to scan all the threads in a forum quickly and respond to those people who have quoted or responded specifically to me.

The "View First Unread" feature is helpful as a bookmark for following along in lengthy threads when you need to pick up where you left off a day or two ago, but it does not provide the specific capapbility of finding comments directed specifically to me.

I hope this is sufficiently clear; if not, PM me. I would love to see this capability added.

BTW, I would also like the ability to use a yellow or green highlighter function to emphasize a passage of text as is possible in Microsoft Word.

The devs are working on a "my conversations" feature which is conceptually similar to your request.

Not quite what you're looking for, but one search you may find helpful is the following:
http://forums.catholic.com/search.ph...Randy%20Carson

This will bold threads where you've posted, where there has been a new post since you last looked. Of course, the new post may have nothing to do with yours. But it's better than looking at an entire forum, where you probably posted to only a minority of threads.
