On another forum I visit there's a link at the top of the page under my profile section to "Unread replies to your posts." Clicking on it takes me to a list of all active threads in which I have posted a comment. Something like this would be great for TMP.

Here's the set up I envision:

On the top left side, under "Welcome to TMP, MemberName" would be a link to "Subscribed Threads." Clicking on it would take the user to a listing of all active threads which they have marked as being of interest. If they've read the thread, it isn't listed. It's only listed when something new is added. Beside each thread title in the list are options to mark it all read or to unscubscribe.

As for the forum pages, users will have the option to click a "subscribe" button beside each thread title to add it to their watch list.

That should work perfectly.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Track topics I've read was voted as the #2 Most Wanted TMP Improvement, so let's talk about how you want this to work.

Would this work like the current "Sort by…" buttons on the Boards page, filtering out the topics you've read (or haven't read)?

Or do you want something up at forum level, that would link to a page showing all topics on the current forum that you have read?
