Re. General Forum Digest
Context of comment:While it is useful to have something included in the Newsletter as a reminder of what has occurred in the past month, it would be infinitely better if it could be provided on-line. It is essential that the site would eventually have the ability to provide threads, especially as the volume and diversity of responses increase. While acknowledging that this is a difficult feat, it will unfortunately be required.

As a starting point my thoughts incline to the view that it would be 'ideal' of one could:
a) track Comments by thread thereby excluding the clutter of other comments on other threads,
b) retrieve a comment by reference number (personally I have had severe difficulty in finding a previous comment that was referred to by number, but maybe that is just my bungling?),
c) collapse or expand threads by 'Heading', since some threads may have various sub-headings. This would allow fast scanning of all threads for the ones required.

Presumably all previous comments are archived. Maybe it would be possible to retrospectively generate a MySQL database of these using:
- Comment Reference Number
- Owner of the posting
- Heading detail (Title 2)
- Date Posted
- Thread Reference 'Code'
- Sub-Thread Reference 'Code'
- Next Thread - Comment Reference Number
- Last Thread - Comment Reference Number
- etc. ...

This would allow for backward and forward searching/tracking by various methods? Something that could be easily run-up of a morning before breakfast - IDT!
