I know you have a lot on your plate what with the email integration et al ... but here's a suggestion which you may want to queue up ... ;-))
Currently the 'My Threads' option gives a user to way to follow the topics that he/she has posted to. However, there are many threads that a user may be interested in following (even though they have nothing to contribute at that time.) I was wondering how difficult it would be to have an option (say a check-box per topic?) to add the current thread to 'My Threads.'
A user can thus collect interesting articles/threads for future reference.
What do you think?
On this same topic, I would like to suggest an option to dismiss a thread that a user has contributted but is no longer interested. Again, a checkbox with a "dismiss" option?
I think your suggestions hold great value. In effect, you are proposing a "favourite threads" option, where a user can choose which threads to track. This would not be a difficult feature to implement, and we will definitly add it to our list. :)
