On another forum I frequent that uses vBulletin, theirs is set up so that when you post in a thread it adds a black dot to the folder icon in the list of threads....this way you can at a glance see which threads you've participated in.

here's what a regular thread icon looks like

here's one that you have posted in

I think such a thing would be handy here

Folders change from red to yellow after you view the thread, unless you use the back button in your browser.

but this doesn't tell me which threads I've posted in.

and when I come back a day later I can't tell at a glance which threads I'm participating in and which ones I've just read.

Click on the Email Notification box when you post & you'll get an e-mail notification whenever somebody replies to the thread you posted in.

Kinda handy if you've participated in several & want to get back into the fray quickly ...
