I've found myself quite often taking time to scroll through a thread to find my own post (to read on from there) or for a post made by the original poster of a thread. On another forum I frequent there is an option to recolor the background color of those posts to whatever you want (when logged in) and it also recolors any quote-boxes where either the OP or myself are quoted. This would make it much easier to browse through a thread and find the most important information. I don't think it would be too difficult to implement this feature (but by all means correct me if I'm wrong).
What do you think?
