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.

Just thoughts...

Seen similar issue ONLY when I get an email notification & I use the link in the email... then maybe come back later that day or next day on the same PC or a different PC to the forums.

Any chance of this happening? After the slew of posts I made today, I again remembered how much I notice the lack of such a feature...

Although I really care about #2, I would say #1 & #3 are just as valuable, and #3 is actually a bug that ideally needs to be fixed.

Implemented suggestion 1 and 2. Better late than never.
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.
