The taptalk idea sounds like what I am looking for and I will look into it. The only issue is that when I am looking for something in particular it is usually on my PC. I do have an android phone and an iPad do it may work. I just don't get why something like that would not be implemented into the forum across platforms. While I appreciate the "Send This Topic" idea it is very outdated as is the "Notify" option. I am very capable of setting up folders, etc. for notifications that are sent by the forum to my email, but it is not a very elegant solution.
I would love to see a separate category that shows all of my "Favorites" or threads that I am "Following" that shows the Topic Name, Category, Original Poster, Date, Last Person to Respond and the date of last response. This way I would have multiple different ways of sorting and searching for threads. As it stands I think the only way that will work for me being that I have multiple platforms is to use Bookmarks. Unfortunately there is no way to easily organize and track threads based on a generic or even custom bookmark name.
