I'm not sure what you mean. Are you regularly marking the forum read? If so, there's already a "Show New Only" link if you're seeing all the messages in a thread - and you're free to edit your profile to show ONLY new messages.
Whenever I log back onto this board for a new session, I always start by goight from my profile page, and see if my rating has gone up or down, and to see if anyone's ignoring me. Seems to be that two people have me on their ignore list.
