Have you considered classifying the different actions?
For instance, categories related to message topics may be create, reply and read.
Then if you have a message topic with the id 12345, you could retrieve the creator of the topic using, for instance, and the people that have replied to the topic using, for instance,
To retrieve the topics read by the user with id 45678, you could use and to retrieve unread messages
Hope this will give you some new ideas.
Best wishes!
