    Is it possible add a feature that highlights certain forum sections in Forum Spy, much like buddies are highlighted?

    Are you excluding the forums you'd rather not see already?

    Holy crap! I was just thinking this last night. :D

    +1 then ... for lack of an adequate response.

    That doesn't let you highlight a particular thread. I think he means thread ... at least I do.

    I am excluding, but I spend more time in certain forums than others, and I'd like to see those threads highlighted so they grab my attention, e.g.:

    I like helping people with the basics, so I'd like my attention called to threads in the Mac Basics and Help section.

    I just subscribe to threads I'm interested in, and I see the checkmark. But for threads in that section I haven't seen yet ...

    It's going to be a pain to pick out all the colors for each subforum to highlight.

    I figure it would work like the buddy list, there is only one color (albeit a different one than the buddy list) ... either the forum is highlighted or not.

    A sprawl of yellow that would include your buddy list and preferred forums would work? :confused:

    r.j.s., if you get to those threads any faster you will be posting answers before the questions are asked! ;)

    Fine blue. I'm not sure if you're intentionally being difficult or if this is just how you roll.

    Who cares what the color is, it probably won't happen.

    No, make the forum highlight green or some other color.

    That's my ultimate goal. ;)

    Aren't we usually the ones that end up discussing Forum Spy? It feels like we had this same discussion before and r.j.s hit 5,000 posts or something.

    I doubt we're going to see more colors on Forum Spy nonetheless.

    Don't use yellow!

    Just a heads up to all, I've recently gone through the Site & Forum Feedback section and compiled a list for the mods of changes the users would like to see. I'm also keeping it up to date. That doesn't mean that feature X is going to be implemented and if it is I don't even know when... but there is a more manageable list. It also contains some things we've been talking about to help us better.

    Anyway... no guarantees if/when things will be updated (it might be 5 more years for all I know) but there is a list being maintained for visibility. Not trying to get your hopes up but at least you are being heard!
