i have seen many other forums that apply a dot to threads that you post in on the little file thing on the left.
is this something that can be added?
it would come in handy over in the share the love forum so you know which things you have already asked for STL love for.

Believe it or not that little dot is EXTREMELY server intensive. Not something we really can offer with the current version of the software

Use the Search feature to search for your name as a poster in the Share the Love Forum.

When you "Search by User Name" instead of just the regular "Search for Keyword," then you can search and find posts by people with names under 4 characters.

Holy thread ressurection!

I like the dot as well, but I understand the server situation that Geoff mentioned.

On ther AVS forum the dot really comes in handy, but I realize that the action here is much quicker and on a larger scale, so I could see how it would be too intense.

If it ever becomes possible, though, I'd like it!

Looks like they're starting to implement it in premium. Doesn't appear to be completely working yet.

Wow, this is an old thread. I don't see why we can't turn this on. Let me just find the switch...

I turned this on for the time being, we'll see how it goes with the server load. Now, threads that you have posted in will have an arrow on the icon like this:
(have posted)

vs.
