I hope this is not a dumb question.

Is there an easy way to view message threads I have posted to for new addidtions (new posts at a glance)?

Something like “Here are the new additions since you last viewed this forum” or Here are the threads that you are currently active in – new posts”.

I check on my profile for my past activities to help me remember what threads I’ve posted to.

This sounds like something good for Martin to work on.

There is an option on the Pulse that allows you to review just posts started by you (‘started by’ dropdown). Pulse automatically tracks new posts since your visit of the actual post so this allows you to see if there are any new comments/replies on your posts since your last visit.

Filtering the pulse view to show all of the posts you’re active in (not just those you started but also those you commented on) is not possible right now.

Hope this helps, snowdog.

maybe another column in the “Recent Activity” under Profile, something like “New posts since last viewed”. I can imagine how much work that would be if the data is not already being stored in a profile.

I’ve twisted Martin’s arm for a similar feature. What I was hoping is that when posting a comment or reply that there would be a radio button that would add you to the email notification on that thread. I keep shooting Martin with web balls. He’s a problem solver. Something will come up!

Wow!, I like the site much more now that I know that. I coded my first Bulletin Board system in 1981 on a commodore 64. It ran for many years on that. The RAVEN BBS it was called. That turned into Pointblank.com and is still running, although I don’t have much to do with it anymore. I know how much fun but also how much work it can be to maintain a viable system. I now work for IBM and am glad I am not the one getting dirty anymore with code <laugh>.

I doubt there is much I can do to help but feel free to ask.

Just keep the ideas coming ;) Coding in Rails is fun but this baby is really growing fast so adding new features is not as easy as it was before. Anyways everything seems to be running pretty smoothly now and I will do my best to continue adding cutting-edge features and improvements down the road. Thanks for offering helping hand, snowdog.. I appreciate that!

I love the new activity item on the Pulse page. It helps me see what projects/postings have been updated since I last viewed them. Plus, I can see all the new items when added. Of course, there are too many to read every one, but it does help in keeping up to date.

I’ve been going to ask this question:
When you make a comment on a thread, is there a way that you can be automatically subscribed to that thread, so you can be notified when there is new activity on that thread.

It would be the same as you’re notified on a thread that I myself created.

It would be handy way to keep from forgetting a thread that you’re interested in

It’s being done on another forum I’m on.

not sure what Martin’s response is to this but in the meantime.. maybe you could add it to favourites and then just check on it?
I don’t know about you but I often forget about great topics because of other great topics that pop up….favourites might help. I’m going to give it a try.

Yes Dick.. I’m thinking about adding this feature.. probably through introducing personal Watchlists.
