I know I'm a newbie on this forum, but I've really enjoyed the support here.
I'm very active on another, non-weight loss related forum, and one of the things I really like there is whenever you are quoted in a post, the next time you are "active" on the page, a little box pops up on the bottom of your page & tells you you've been quoted, if you click on the box, it will take you directly to the post. You can also set up "alerts" with keywords, and the same box pops up to tell you someone has posted about your keyword.
I don't know if this is something you would be interested in adding to your site. It's just a really nice feature, and is a way to follow your threads easily.
