    Hello Greg (and all :biggrin:)

    Why not have a feature that allow members (gold members if you wish :devil:) to pin posts that are interesting to them? Probably locate "my favourite posts" link some place in "my PF". Better than doing some search, and you know, memory glitch is horrible. :grumpy:

    Why don't you subscribe to the thread you like? You will have an easy access to the thread through your profile then.

    Just make a folder called 'Favorites' in the subscription screen. (Go to the Edit Folders option.)

    Yeah, but after a while, or many subscribed threads in my PF, I lose track of certain posts that I want to check. Some threads even have 100s of posts (like PF RT), it's gonna take a long time to find it. That being said, I might not remember where is the post located.. I know. :biggrin:

    Favorite threads or posts?

    Also, I think there's some kind of "bug" in the subscriptions.

    Let's say I post to a thread and noone posts after me. If I go to "My PF", it still appears there, sometimes bold.

    Shouldn't "My PF" only show subscriptions threads that have NEW posts?

    EDIT:

    Also, I vote (not that anyone cares) in favour of Gad's suggestion.

    You can bookmark single posts. Just click on the post number in the upper right corner of the post and bookmark the page.

    Am I the only one having this problem?

    Can't you remove the subscriptions to such threads, or even threads you don't like to receive email notifications for?

    I can, but that's not the issue.

    I'd like to have a feature that tells me which subscribed threads have new posts. "MY PF" shows threads that have no new posts. I believe that's a bug, but noone seems to care ://

    Visit these threads - do they still show in bold?

    Visit these threads following links from the subscribed threads list - do they still show in bold?

    Forum software has some quirks, no doubt about it. It is not that we don't care - but we are not authors of this software. While we sometimes can modify the code to suit our needs, debugging it is counterproductive - we don't know the code good enough and it is not documented well enough, so trying to fix something that is not important is a waste of time.
