Enable the ability for a user to watch a thread. I'm
picturing something like the following:
-Attach an icon/button to the highest parent comment
of a thread. All logged in users may select that icon.
-Upon selection, any posts made in response to that
thread will generate a notification message to the
user indicating a new post has been made.
-This enables a user to monitor a discussion as it
unfolds without the need to search for or dig up the
discussion and check to see if new posts have been
-On the user's page (ie, slashdot.org/~username)
include a link to a list of currently watched
-Recommend limiting the number of watched threads to
limit the amount of load on the servers. Also
recommend removal of threads from the watch list after
the story gets archived.
