New posts queue and a few minor features

I have a few minor features that might be a little useful for 3.0.

1. New posts queue: A link at the top of the forum, which would show unread posts/newest posts, all in one list.  This would be much easier than combing through all the different forums if you check the community section frequently.

2. Mark as Read: related to #1, the ability to mark posts as unread (by reading them) or mark a forum/all forums as read.  Unread topics could be in bold which would make it easier for us to see which topics have been updated since we last checked.

3. Notifications system: This would be helpful for us if people comment, you get a merit, etc. for example:

shayneii posted a comment on your profile
You have received a merit for your comment on [game]

or maybe even...

Your comment on [game] was deleted, reason [insert]

though I see how there could be problems with that.

4. Social groups:  I see how this would be more like social networking but it could be a possibility.

Just a few suggestions ;)

This is already here except you have to check your email for it.

4. Social groups:

You mean like fan pages or groups?

I mean on the website.

Kind of a hybrid I guess.  But called groups, and they could have like a page like a user's where people could post, it would also show who is part of the group, etc.  Probably there should not be AP awarded for groups and commenting on group pages, since it would most likely get out of control if that was the case.

So yeah, a group. Or a club. I think that would be a nice idea so that people could support a cause or join some weird club.
Maybe a suggestion to that would that the creator(s) of the group could only allow certain people to the group so that it could be exclusive. :)

I agree with all your suggestions Shayne. Great ideas.

Yes. I also think we should be allowed to join multiple groups and not be restricted to a single one.

I know alot of people have Xat groups with friends from AG, so maybe instead of a no-AP posting area for these groups they could have a chatroom.

Cormyn did state that live chat will not be implemented into AG3.

Instead of putting the live chat on AGv3 why not just give users the ability to give links to their XAT or whatever chat they use in the list under the username i.e.
