Is it possible to show the New icon when somebody replies in a discussion board?

If I create a new topic, the New icon is shown. After the default 2 days the icon's gone. I'd like to show it again if somebody replies to the topic, or any form of notification.

All right. Here is what I did. I followed Dribbel suggestion of adding a column with the last -updated date to the view. Then, using JQuery, I looked for all these columns and made some javascript math to check if there were new comments or not. Last, I replaced the content of this column with a custom made "new cmnt" icon or clear the contents of it accordingly.

Kind of a hack, but it works.


You can add a column to the view that lists the date of the latest response.
