One thing that my team felt is really lacking from the forums is making it obvious when there are new posts. I've created a patch that does just that -- it bolds boards that have new activity and thread subjects that are new since the last visit, excluding those you've already visited. I imagine this could be improved display-wise to perhaps show an icon or what-have-you, so certainly feel free to modify this as you see fit.

I looked in to creating some test cases for this, but it looks like the test coverage for the boards are pretty minimal as is. I did verify that the current tests are not broken by this patch, however.

Feel free to ask questions, and if you'd like me to make some changes, let me know!

something like showing "there is a new post!!" would be nice. You can send emails, yes but showing a highlight on the table would be helpful I think.
