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.
