I mean mark (use different icon for) topics with at least one my post inside.

Example:

I don't think he means specifically HIS posts,

IMO - Dreamer means each user that logs in would see a mark, as he described, for threads that they had posted inside.

I agree, I think they should install a mod for this. It is very useful to know what topics you've posted in...

You can check off "notify me when a reply is posted" (right above "Preview" and "Submit"). I believe that is a more than adequate method. Certainly there is no point in returning to a thread where your post has not been responded to.

I don't think so, I don't want many emails, it's confusing and completely different feature, I don't want to read topic every time someone add reply, I want read it all at once, when I want.

T!663R - thanks for support!

So wwhat's the point of marking them then--surely you remember which ones interest you.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of adding mods to this board since 1) It's not really a "social" board, meaning that people don't come here looking to hang out and make friends, so the latest, greatest, and coolest features aren't necessary to keep the traffic coming and 2) since Avant is a rather popular browser, I prefer to be able to do any security upgrades to the board as soon as possible. The more mods, the slower that goes.

This isn't a big mod, so it's not that big of a deal, but it seems like a lot of requests (possibly not this one) are made out of laziness. I guess I just don't understand why you reply to something you either know nothing about or doesn't interest you at all. And if you can contribute to the thread or are interested in it, why wouldn't you be interested a week from now when it gets a new reply?

Again, you have to keep in mind that this is primarily a support forum, not really one for "chit chat" where it might be hard to keep track of where people are talking to you, etc.
