Marking posts as read is not so much a problem since the type face changes color once you've read an entry. It will revert to the same color as all the other entries over the course of a day or soI really haven't kept trackbut by then additional posts will have the word "new" added at the end..
That's very helpful because in a long thread, some people reply to posts in the beginning or middle long after the thread has grown in length. If it weren't for the "new" tag, you might miss those later responses. I should note, though, that at the end of every post in a long thread is a note saying how long ago the entry was made..
I've stumbled onto a lot of things I never knew were here...like this Beginners' Question forum, for example. And I've been visiting DPReview for two or three years. It's just easy to find yourself a comfortable rut and stay there.The downside of course is that you never gain access to the handy, but not immediately evident, features here at DPReview..
The list of forums is quite long, I find the font size and colors take extra effort to read. The site orgqanization has not been very intutive for me. It's like being in a house with hundreds of rooms and no "YOU ARE HERE" maps..
Of course, maybe they are here...I just haven't found them yet..
Good luck to you..
Soenda,Thanks for your info..
Thought of a work-around to subscribe to threads since it is not available on dpreview. Open a MS Word document and paste the thread's URL in it. Keep adding or deleting URLs as needed. Then just click on any URL to open that thread...
If you subscribe to a thread,or start one,or when someone replies ,this will show in "my threads" I use a shortcut to "my threads" to open Dpreview.I can then see if any replies have been recieved since my last visit.Frank Perry..

I knew that starting a thread would make it show up in "My Threads". But how do I suscribe to a thread to make it show up?..
This thread shows up in "my threads' as I have contributed to the thread that you started.Frank Perry..

Understand what you meant now. Was hoping there was a way to suscribe to interesting threads without having posted in them. Guess I gotta go with the MS Word method for dpreview..
