    I miss the "my flyertalk" feature where I could herd the threads that I was interested in perusing.

    Is there such a feature on MP?

    I am tired of plowing through numerous threads to find what I need for my travel info.

    Someone please?

    Did you mean herding the forums you like? For me I created a bookmark folder and bookmarked the forums I like as a workaround.
    For the equivalent of Flyertalk's "thread subscriptions", the "watch thread" function should work OK.

    You can watch individual theads but you can't watch a whole forum. I need to watch the Air Canada forum for example.

    At the roll out meeting at LAX a couple weeks ago, it was one of the most requested features. Here's the whole recap of that meeting.

    But it certainly doesn't hurt to bring the subject up yet again. I too miss it a LOT.

    It probably is my main complaint about MP. I find it difficult to follow info.

    Randy: Is it technically possible to implement such a feature or do I have to live with what I perceive to be a frustrating design flaw?

    I am wasting too much time getting to where I want to go to, and not stumbling upon "interesting other things" in the meantime. I was hoping it was going to be a March 1st improvement.

    Another vote for the my milepoint feature... I sorely miss this after getting used to it over on the other side...

    My Mile Point would be the one feature that I would ask Santa for Christmas. :D....or even for my birthday in June.

    Any updates on progress or (sorry to be blunt) why this is taking so long? Is it intentional (does milepoint not want us subscribing?) I continually find myself wanting to spend more time on Milepoint, but I just don't have the time to click through to the half dozen or dozen forums I want to read consistently.

    The ability to subscribe to a forum is possible through the MP app.

    Would be quite helpful since a lot of the OffTopic stuff does not appear in Whats New..........

    Actually it does ... you need to do one extra click to see the Off Topic threads ... to the right - on the top right corner you should see an All Recent Messages link - click on that and the What's New expands to show off topic threads...
