For instance....How do you check to see if any threads that you've posted in have been updated? I know some people subscribe to threads, but I sometimes don't check my mail till the end of the day, and I hate having 10 messages saying the same thread has post updates. So what I do to check to see if any of my treads have new post is I always go to the search page and put my user name in the 'search by username" textbox. Another cool thing that I found digging around in the user controls is the pop up message sent if you get a personal message. This is a feature that I just love, because you canb go days without checking to see if you have a PM or not.
