1) It would be great if creating a new thread or posting to an existing thread would automatically subscribe me to it. I find myself always
clicking SUBSCRIBE after I create a new thread or respond to something existing, since I want to be alerted in my email of any new posts. I have never found myself clicking UNSUBSCRIBE. If I am atypical, maybe a BOINCstats setting like "Auto-Subscribe to threads you create or post in".
2) It would be nice to see the threads that I am subscribed to as well as the forums in which I have subscribed thread(s) highlighted in some way in the list view, like a yellow background or similar. That with the combination of the "new post" icon that already exists would be a nice combination to see quickly any activity of interest, especially for those who choose to not receive email notifications for subscribed threads.
3) Speaking about the "new post" icon. I did not narrow this down, yet, but lately I have been frequently seeing a forum with the "new post" icon, I would go into the forum, but the forum wouldn't have anything unread. No, it is not a matter of going back and forth between the forum list and the threads in the browser without refreshing the forum list. For example, something I read on my phone earlier in the day would be marked as read as a thread, but the forum would indicate that there is something to read inside. Yes, my phone is logged in to BOINCstats. There must be a bug lurking around there.
