Subscribe to threads option
If there are a couple of threads you like - you can 'subscribe' to those threads. Click on "Subscribe to this Thread" at the bottom of the page. Your subscribed threads can be viewed from your User Control Panel (UserCP at top of each page). You'll also be notified by email when your subscribed threads are updated.
Additionally, like OmeLuuk mentions, its also possible to have 'sticky' threads in forums - important threads for that forum can be permanently posted at the top of the forum for better visibility. Though we like to limit this to just a few key threads to prevent distorting visibility from the rest of the forum.
Patrick and I have addressed the issue of making interesting threads more visible, and we have a few more ideas in the pipeline.
In the meantime, have a go with the Subscribe option, let us know if it works for you.
Thanks for the valuable input.
