This is a feature I really enjoy on another forum. Essentially upon posting a new post in the thread, alert if there has been any new posts during the time it took you to read the thread & post a reply. This could be difficult to implement in a XF manner(i.e. sexy ) but I'm sure that if we put our minds together we can come up with a great use for this! I read somewhere that there should be a button that would check for new posts but I'd really want this automatically checked upon posting.
