So at a suggestion, we have added a "like" button to the forum. This will allow you to let people know you are following their posts and someone is watching.

Let me know what you think

If, like me, you usually look at "Recent Posts" you have to click on the subject to open the whole thread



 before you can see and use the Like button:

Excellent. Now, how about using a cookie so that it will track your viewing and take you to the first unread post in a topic?

Just hit the 'Show all unread posts' link, and before you leave the forum mark all posts as read, that way you see all the new posts
