agreed, agreed, and agreed. 3 great ideas IMHO
The challenge is to adopt those ideas into the interface without making it more complicated, visually or functionally. The simplicity of WebmasterWorld's interface is one of its most charming and attractive traits

Great idea and a real timesaver. I too get lost in the MAYDAY thread and this seems to be a good fix for me.

yes and also start with most recent at the top and needs expandable threads...

always looked for senior members in those too-long threads to see if there was any real thought put in to things, or if it was just a rant fest devolving into a flame war.
it would be great if a senior member could post a summary about the thread in threads longer than N messages somewhere along the way - ideally near the end.
I really like reading the opinions of senior members. Even when they disagree.
Most other "opinion" is a waste of time.

Add my vote to this one. Badly needed.

Red dots are used on the message level, but perhaps CSS would be a better way to highlight the new messages.
I'm not convinced a SlashDot type thread would work here. Even though there are some members posts I prefer to others you miss out on a lot with that type of system. I'd fear you'd have an entrenched hierarchy of Senior Members that might drown out participation from others. That's not the WebmasterWorld style.
