What this forum really needs is the option (check boxes) to the left of every thread/comment in the "Newest Posts" section. It's my first "goto" place when I get here, where I spend 99.99% of my time, and it's usually the last place I leave from. I treat it the same as an "Inbox" like email, and I need to quickly scan what I'm interested in and what I don't have time for, and go do other things elsewhere I need to do. I do have other groups and forums to participate in and/or manage. The problem now is it's gotten away from me because there are no way to delete all the new messages that have been piling up. The only way to delete them presently is to open/close each one, choose "newest posts" icon after each read post to refresh, etc. It's now counter-productive and takes way too long to keep updated, participate in interested threads & clear my Newest Posts section; which is my goal everytime I come here. I really hope this can happen very soon. Oh btw - the rest of the forum looks great!
