Default some way to signify I have posted in a thread

A lot of other forums have a feature that shows me that I have posted in a particular thread when I review the forum index. For instance, on PY there is a blue check mark next to the thread title of threads in which I have posted.
It makes it easier to remember which threads I have contributed to without having to look up the list of all my posts. Is this something that could be added please?

I still haven't found the list of topics I'm allegedly watching. Are those sent to me in an email? I have emails from here turned off.
My point was that it is easier (on sites with this feature) to quickly scan a forum index page (one page that I'm going to view anyway) for the little check mark than to sift through my ten pages of past posts.
That feature is not seen on this forum, that is why I am suggesting that it be added.

Yes, watched threads are turned on in your profile.

I'm not interested in a shouting match.

If the feature I've suggested can't be added to this forum, that'* not that big a deal, like I said, I'm just making a suggestion to help improve the site. And so far no one has addressed that issue yet.

i dont think it cant be added, but what i think what everyone is saying is that we dont need it since we already have something that can do something similar




and i dont see anything about a shouting match....

Similar yes, but not quite the same nor as fast.
Here is a screen shot from PY illustrating what I mean:

I look at the forum index anyway, so instead of opening another page I see what I want to know instantly. Yes, it is similar but I find this way quicker.

The misuse of capital letters is commonly referred to as shouting in internet vernacular. And I don't find that productive so I don't intend to participate in such a display.

i think thats a good idea.

but the caps was prob more for emphasis, rather than yelling

Okay, but we have italics, bold print, and even different colors for emphasis. Caps is universally considered rude, and all I was saying is, I'm not trying to pick a fight, my interest is simply to improve the forum. It is not my intent to harp on someone else'* attitude, I'm just making a suggestion for improvement. And still my question remains unanswered;

Not that I am in a rush or anything, I just see several reiterations of what we already have here and one "I don't think so". If I didn't know how to use something, I would have asked, "How do I do...?" But that isn't what I wanted to know, so that isn't what I asked.
Still patiently and politely waiting.
