In the profile, currently recent replies and threads started are sorted by most recent created being listed first and are two separate groups. This functions well and serves its purpose. I feel though that some improvement could be made to make this site even more user friendly than it already is.
My suggestion to make this list more organized, and in some ways more readable:
Combine the lists, placing a symbol (such as a star) next to posts the user created.
- Currently the same post can (and does) appear under both lists.
- This would make the list smaller by getting rid of duplicates and in the process, clean the page up slightly.
Have the lists sorted by most recent reply.
- Currently the list is sorted by most recently created.
- This makes it easier to access more recently active posts.
- A post created today may be solved in 10 minutes, but a post created last month, may still be heavily active.
Displaying replies as unread.
- Currently the unread replies are displayed as a different font color.
- This is a great idea, but the difference is very small.
- In addition to the color change, having the text bold would allow it to stick out more.
I do not mean to offend anyone with my suggestions. This is honestly the most helpful and nicest forum I have ever used.
