I've seen other sites that have bulletin boards like this, and one of the features I've seen that's pretty cool, is when you contribute to a thread, it keeps track of it, and you can the go back and look at just the threads you are watching. It makes it easier to find a particular topic that you want to know the answer to, or see if anyone responded to. I don't know if it will work the way this site is organized with all the different catagories, but it would be cool if it could be done.

I sometimes go to search and put in my name and search for the last 5 days or so, and it effectively does what you are describing.

I guess I never noticed that you could search. The link is kidna small an out of the way.
This doesn't work quite as well as watching particular topics, but it does the job.

What you're suggesting sounds cool. Hopefully something like that will be in the software when we upgrade.
