Request from some of my users:

There are two kinds of topic icons: blue (read.png) which say that there aren't new posts in this topic, and red (unread.png) which, on the other hand, show that there are new posts since your last visit.

Could those icons be modified in order to show users that they participated in a topic discussion? They might stay the way they are - red and blue, but with ... I don't know ... a yellow circle on it to show I have some posts in there. It would make followup so much easier.

Participation check is too slow to implement.

It's a great feature, but it slows the forum down something horribly =(

I am a member of a forum that has this feature, and I like this feature. (Yes, this forum is slower than FUDforum.)

I've looked at the code and must (unfortunately) agree with Ilia. Introducing such a feature will require an extra database lookup for each topic listed. So, if you set "Topics Per Page" to 40. You would need 40 additional queries to render that page.

There are ways around it, so you will not need 40 queries (1 per topic shown) however they would still be slow.
