    Is great to have an option (a link) to read posts by people you follow in any thread
    maybe using search system or anything
    just to make it easy to navigate you friends posts in a specific thread

    what do you think ?

    I had no idea that's what the news feed is for. I was wondering what the point was in following someone, since it didn't show you what they posted. lmao

    The news feed is extremely useful if you're interested in certain members and what they post, etc.

    No, what i meant when vising big threads with 50 pages sometime you want to look at what you friends posts in that threads
    how would i do that ?
    currently: i would have to visit each page
    My sugg.: a link where you can see posts by users you followed

    OK, I understand the suggestion now.

    But surely without the context of the other posts, your friends' comments will be meaningless?
    Additionally, if your friend had made 50 posts in a thread, how and where would those 50 links be displayed?

    I agree, I "followed" Jake Bunce because his instructions for things are easy to understand, and then never saw any evidence that this action did anything but put his avatar in who's-online, which was disappointing. Thanks for sorting that out. :)

    There should be another page with your friends posts only. the same way thread's post are displayed.

    That would be like having 10 minutes of sound bites from a 2 hour movie. It would make no sense to me.

    If anything, a highlighted color for posts of people you follow. But even then presumably you keep up with those people and know what avatars they are using (there is even a change avatar alert).

    Ok think about it dean if you following a developer and only wants to see his comments because his comments are most likely to be useful because they include [news, bug fixes] for the product.

    I know what are you saying but i think quotation helps when used
