There is a ''new post'' and ''recent post'' tab at the top of the page, but I think it could be aesthetically pleasing and quite helpful, to create a small section off to the side, showing when a thread has a new post, and who has recently posted in it. So, if this thread has a new entry, it gets put in that line up. You could have a limit of perhaps five or six threads, doesn't need to show a ton. The problem with the tabs at the top, is it doesn't always show the latest entries. And if someone doesn't quote you, or like your post, you might not see the latest updates. It could be above where the status updates are located, and under ''who is online.''
