Features to add

I belong to another forum that has 2 features I would enjoy seeing here. These are 2 links at the top of every page you are on once logged in.

Unread posts and unread replies.

Unread Posts are new posts, obviously, that you haven't seen yet. Either old threads with new posts or new threads all together. This one might be problematic just because of the size of this forum.

Unread replies are what I would like to see the most here. This is a link that directs you to replies to any thread you have posted in, very nice feature.

No need to add features that already exist.

What you call "Unread posts" can be found in the top menu bar called "New Posts".

"Unread replies" would be very similar to the existing subscription system. Go to the User CP, select Edit Options and change the "Default Thread Subscription Mode" to one of the 3 notification modes - Instant, Daily, or Weekly.

I never tried the subscription feature until just now. Just didn't really think I'd use it. Anyway, it's kinda cool.

Now if I could just find out why my friends list is empty.....
