    Some forums have a system where developer posts are "highlighted" or stand out in some way, and then give users the option to jump directly to the next or previous developer post in that thread.

    There are also icons or similar "highlights" on the sub-forum indexes showing that a developer has posted in that thread.

    It makes it a lot easier to quickly find out what has received a response from developers. I am wondering if this is possible on Xenforo? And what do people think about it?

    I don't mind.

    It's easy enough to spot a specific avatar in a thread.
    You can also check a member's recent posts by checking their profile, so it's not complicated, but you'd only think of doing this if you're familiar with Xenforo.

    Having this would make it easier for much people.

    I have read that it's possible to assign custom post layout formatting to separate user groups.

    It's easy to see that when we select posts and they turn bubbly-red.

    By developer you mean people on the ER team? I think this may look cool, and it may not be too hard to setup on XF.

    I can only find the official Xenforo doc example ATM. I thought Bukkit Forums used this but it seems not.

    It's a cool idea but I don't know what color we would use since quotes already show up with a lighter gray around them. I think the invincible Mario is probably good enough.

    I think it's fine the way it is, but I'm really interested in the quick-jumping. Or maybe your posts could have a dark shade of red instead of grey for your name-plate, but the post content itself won't be affected.

    Sounds good. Orange could also work.

    Red would be better because the site is already all black and red.
