Dear Forum supervisor,

I wasn't sure where to place this post... so I hope it's OK to put it here.

After this forum was restructured and divided into sections last year I must admit for me it became less transparent due to the difficulty to track the new posts and the existing discussions.

Personally, I tend to monitor only one section not to get distracted too much... The e-mail notifications do not help either...

Hence, I can think of an improvement that could minimize the problem: That would be a section 'Recent posts/threads' (exactly the same feature as implemented on the development portal) where each registered user could track (and maybe mark for his own purposes) new/read threads from different forum sections.

Do you think such a feature can be implemented?

Dear Pawel,
It seems very good idea.
We will check it and will analyze the possibility to implement it.
Thanks for your input.
