One of the threads I commented on had new replies and I was emailed notifications of that. But the notifications maddeningly just say that there is a new reply. It doesn't tell me what was said. So to read it I have to click on the link to see it.
WHICH RESETS MY "LAST VISIT" DATE.
And screws up all the colors and "first unread post" links and everything else indicating what I've read.
I realize this is probably SOP for the forum software you're using but there's got to be a better way. It would be fantastic if you could start by showing the text (and author) of the reply when I get an email notification. It won't help if I want to respond (I'll still have to show myself on the site). The other thing I ask is a key on every page (that uses it) explaining what the different colors/markers mean. At this point I feel like I have to read everything starting from scratch. I don't have a clue where my place is. Not a huge deal at this point with so few posts, but will be a lot more frustrating as time passes.\
Again, thanks for setting up the forums. I just want the experience of reading them to be more productive.
