    My idea would be to add another thing to the pop down list that tells you if you have new VMs/PMs, that sort of thing. When someone quotes your post, it usually means that they are responding directly to you, often hoping for another response.

    As an avid team rater, when a Team poster quotes my rate and adds comments I love to read them. Though it can often be a hassle to keep up with a thread as numerous others pile up on top of it. Sometimes I'll check a thread very often to never see a response. Or sometimes I won't check back, and there will be a response waiting.

    I believe this would further help connect our community.

    I believe this would overcrowd and overcomplicate things too much, especially for users like me.

    I find it easy enough to remember what I have posted in what threads, enabling me to easily check back to see what other people have posted. Therefore I do not believe this is really necessary.

    Although not exactly this, remember that you can set it so that you're automatically subscribed to threads you post in. That way you can just check your subscription list and see which topics you've posted in have had someone else post since you were last in it.

    Since most RMT threads never go past a single page, it's mostly about making sure you keep up with the threads you've posted in. For active threads, the view your own posts feature is sufficient.

    For threads with more pages, this pretty much solves the problem.

    You can also try Ctrl+F then putting your name in to see if you were quoted in subsequent pages for the more active threads.

    yes. This is a problem i see in many forums. This will help discussions very much I think. In some forums I cant even find my own posts because there is no list of my posts link there.

    you can use the forum search features, advanced search, look for your username in the forum you posted in and it will show you all your posts in that forum

    you can also find all of your posts on your user profile (it should be in statistics) which allows you to browse through your latest posts (with direct links to the post and thread).
