On the right hand side of every page is a box titled My Favorite Forums. I can see which forums have new posts and which do not. But I would also like to be able to mark just those forums as read, and I would like to know how long ago the last post was without looking at the big forum list.
On the big forum list it tells me that on the IT Professionals' Lounge forum the last post was 1 hour ago and there are 49 people viewing it. That kind of information would be nice on the favorite forums list too.
