One of the big benefits I see on other forum software is the ability to 
jump to the first unread post in a thread, something I haven't noticed a 
way of doing on the current system. It's extremely time consuming to 
have to reread a whole thread to find out where you last read to and 
find the new posts in a thread since your last visit.
