When I check POTN, I usually do two things:

1) check recent posts -> works okay.

2) check posts I've posted in myself, by searching "posts by peterdoomen" in the CP.

For this second option, it would be useful to have an indication of who was the last person to post in a thread, so that I don't have to remember if I was the last person who posted in that thread.

An idea for an extra feature? I admit it is "nice to have" rather than "must have", still it would be, well, "nice".

P.

Already available,

When You post in a thread choose subscription with or without email notification. This can be set as default via usercp.

Then when You goto usercp You will see the subscribed threads that have been posted to since You last posted. The last poster is also displayed (to the right). On the left side of each individual thread there is a little blue icon with an arrow that points down. Click on that and You move to the first unread post in that thread.

And if you were to search for posts by "peterdoomen" and choose the "Show results as Threads" option, you'd see the threads with subsequent unread posts in bold. So it's there two ways. How's that for service?

Fantastic, like most POTN things :D

I knew about the subscription option, but I keep on forgetting about subscribing. Jon's option is better for me. Thanks.

On similar lines, can we have an option to notify OP that we are looking for some inputs/reply.

Each user can set the OP notification to 'no' (esp. useful when you go around starting a 100 threads a day) but for most, I think it would be useful. Most common uses would be for pic posts, if someone wants to ask for settings, or if there are clarifications to a qtn being asked etc.

Also When I see subscriptions on User CP page ( New Subscribed Threads:) , I think there should also be a link to last page. So everytime, I dont need to click on thread page and then again click on last link to see the most recent replies.

Its already there. To the left of the subject there is a small blue icon with a white arrow on it. Click on that and You go straight to the first unread post in that thread.
