Here are some things I wish I knew about this site – please let me know if I just don’t know how to do this or if it’s just not possible (and maybe if I can make a suggestion??):
I wish there was a way that when I wrote on someone’s post and they replied that I would know that they replied to me and I would be taken directly to their reply.
I wish there was a way to mark or put up top all the posts I’ve posted on that have new posts after mine.
I wish there was a way to mark how far into the post I’ve read. Say there are 3 pages of posts and I’ve read the first 3 and now there are 5 pages, I wish I could be taken directly to the “last read post.”
Anyone know how to do these things?
Any other things you wish you knew how to do or wish you could do on this site??

I think if you click “Subscribe to topic via email” it will notify you whenever there’s activity on the thread.
Which could be awesome or maddening, depending on if the thread blows up as some of them on here do now and then.
I don’t know how to accomplish any of the other things on your wish list. If you find out, inquiring minds want to know!

I wish there was a feature that told you when your comment was specifically replied to, as well! I don’t want to subscribe to a million threads, but I like to respond to direct comments to my posts!

You might want to submit some of those in the Ideas thread.
I think having the ability of marking the page from the last area I read would be a great idea.

Click ‘ideas’ in the upper left hand corner on the site and make your suggestions. I agree with all of them!

I should have added, I wish I knew how to submit a suggestion.. haha! I will submit these now.
I would have to make an entirely new email to subscribe to these threads. I have one email that comes to my blackberry already and that is just my personal email and it already drives me insane. Then, I have an email that doesn’t come to my blackberry and is my “spam” email, but I get like 100+ emails a day on that one (it’s the one I use to subscribe to everything). At this point, I would need a third email, a bee-mail!, because I can imagine the sheer volume of the emails I would get if I subscribed to every thread that I posted to!

Here’s another thing that I wish would be implemented, maybe you bees can help out with the wording for the idea title:
Whenever I go to my profile to look at the posts I’ve posted on, it will say when I’ve recently posted and also if there have been any replies since and how long ago. So, say I posted on a post and 5 mins later there was another post and I click it and read it.. and I come back 30 mins later and it says that were was a post 30 mins ago, it could be the same post that I already clicked on and read. I wish it would say whether there are new or old posts based on whether or not I’ve read them, not based on when they’ve been replied to after my post. Does that make any sense??
