I've just read a 35 page thread. I've read the lot but only because I was scanning thru' for updates by the OP. Would it be possible to highlight or have in bold the OP's name/updates to make the scanning a bit quicker?
I think it's in 'customise' which is the first link after talk above this post, and below Mumsnet Talk. But yes, you can do it. I only figured it out recently, and yes, great for those really long threads where you want to find out what happened to the piece of Lego etc but I suspect you also miss out on some of the best bits too!
