Windows 7: OP ID?

I'd say that the #1 from Kari's post is a problem point, I never knew you could go to the first unread post by clicking there.

Kari's post is a nice feature hint but missing the/my point!

once you are subscribed to a bunch of threads, and got the notifications in your inbox, you go directly into the thread and here starts the problem - who was the OP?

I like the idea and can do it, but I'll have to run some tests on the dev site to see if it causes any extra overhead on the db.

Take your time, z3r, once it is in place it would definitely help to better monitor OP's progress inside a long thread.

I admit I misunderstood OP's point. The idea sounds really good.

I tend to go the long way round, OK I get the notice in my inbox of threads I'm involved in but to me that's just an indication there have been replies I don't usually follow any up at that point.

When login in here I start at the top and tend to do a quick visit to the sub forums I'm interested in and look to see what has been posted, if it's one I'm involved in I'll probably go to the last post that was made, if there have been a lot of posts since I was last in here I'd go back a few pages until I was where I'd left off then start reading from there.

OK probably not the most time efficient method but it works for me and that way I don't miss anything, I end up at the bottom of the list of sub forums at some point in time, but I've probably learned something along the way and maybe I've been able to help someone as well on the journey.

I think I like this idea too, now that I think about it.
