improvements to "my bookmarks and watches"

so i use the bookmarks and watches quite extensively in another ofrum i use but have found the one here to be a little less inviting

i propose that something is done about this whenever you get a chance
1) i feel it should be easier to determine which threads on your watchlist have been updated since your last post, or replied to since your last post
this could be done by either adding a graphic to the side of threads that have been updated or, and i feel this is a better idea, when you open your watchlist it only shows updated threads and there is a link to the side or at the bottom that leads to all of your watches, replied to or not
2) i think it would be nice to see the username of the last person to reply and along with that a link/button that takes you to the last post in the thread
3) i also think it would be nice if under each thread title, there is the name of the thread starter or original poster

just my thoughts and i think it'll make the watches/bookmarks much better

if there is another thread concerning this topic, feel free to simply move my post over to that thread or whatever, not trying to flood the forum

I don't use the bookmarks/watches so I don't exactly have an idea of how it is currently. But what you suggest seems feasible and logical. In fact, I think there was a similar request at one other forum which is run by us on this same software. I can't promise when this is going to be available, but I'll add this to our internal feature tracking tool so that someone can get to it.

Thank you Jaikiran, i have kinda evolved from using it and instead rely on my email notifications but it'd still be nice to be able to find all the ones ive subscribed to i think
