: : I believe this has been ask before, but if so, I don't remember the answer. Frequently people send replies to a message days later, which is not a problem, but is there anyway it can be marked or something, so we don't miss it. I don't know what the rest of you think or if I'm missing a "how to", but it's a pain to have to go down the list every time looking for anything with a recent date. I have found some WAY down the list. Could anything that comes in more then a day or two later be posted in a different color or a different style writing or a star by it or whatever to identify it? I enjoy reading what everyone has to say, so hate to miss them.

: I agree that this would be extremely helpful. My read messages turn a dark blue, but it doesn't stay that way. The next day, everything is light blue again. I have a strand thru eDiets that I posted on, and now, even months later, I will get email with a comment on what was posted way back when; they have just joined and are now reading and commenting. That saves me from looking it up thru a complicated server message (which another computer user board I use does.) So that would be a great benefit. I know we have a web moderator, but do we have a web master??????
Here I am replying to a message days later, and I also agree that if there was a way to see what we had read and what we hadn't it would save a lot of time scrolling through the whole thing. I sometimes don't get to the board for 4 or 5 days and sometimes I wonder if people are going to read back that far to check for a new posting. Some other sites I use (not for PD though)show the places I've already looked at in pink and the unread ones in blue. If something like that could be done here, that would be great. Or even just a little tag to the side of the message with "New" or something similar.
