This feature might exist, but it may lack visibility.

I'm having trouble quickly finding new replies to threads I've posted in.

True, I could manually "watch" them, but having a list that tracks every thread that was replied to after one of my replies can be helpful to keep track of the activity.

 

Feel free to disregard is irrelevant.

There are two methods I use for that.

 

First, when you post in a forum you automatically are marked as watching the forum. If you choose "Watched Content > By Section > Forum" you can see a list of the forums with new content. The individual topics you have replied to are marked with a star rather than a dot, and the background will be light or dark depending on if you have read the replies.

 

 

Second, you can use the profile link under your name menu. Just pick "My Content" from your profile menu and it will show you all the recent threads and their last edit date. All of those should have a star since you replied, but their background will be light or dark depending on if you have read all new replies.


Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.

Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I write about assorted stuff.

There is an option here to autofollow topics I reply to. That, and the notification options for followed topics (which I have set to Notification List), gives me a faceplace-esque little red counter in the top right when someone replies to a topic I have participate in, or chosen to follow.

QFE.

 

I always run with autofollow topics, and all notifications set to badge only.
