This is a feature I've always thought would be handy on the home page, in the right column of forum postings recently updated. Is there any way the name of the latest poster can be included? I like some people's way of thinking and always interested in what they have to say on certain topics. Would be good to know if they have recently posted a reply on a thread.

Would anyone else find this useful?

Consider it a compliment Wink BTW, what's that frilly thing you're wearing? Are you sure you don't want to wear more clothes in the kitchen?

Additional request.

When you click on a users public profile it would be useful to see "xyz's recent replies to any/all threads" rather than the current "These are the most recent replies to discussions xyz started" imo anyway.

One more suggestion while we're at it. Could the links of "Reset Read Flags" and "New Forum Posts" be separated more. The number of times I've click the wrong one by mistake..

And as I have asked before but it got no traction, can the 'reset read flags' button be the only way that the read flags be reset, rather than them also being reset after a visit to GZ?

I access GZ from multiple devices and sometimes the read flags are not in sync across those devices.  I'd like this tied to my username, and be able to control when I reset all flags rather than the current automatic system.  Often I'd like to pop into GZ just for a couple of minutes to check a specific reply, but at the moment I know I'll have to scan the rest of the new posts too otherwise I will lose track of what I have and haven't read.

Is this possible?

This would require a lot more coding than we have planned for - actually across a lot of scripts. That's why we haven't put this in the list.
