New Feature: Premium Members See Comment Counts
Premium members can now view the number of incoming comments alongside private messages in the box that floats to the right of every page. It's one of those features that would probably consume too much server resources to do for everyone so we give it to those few premium members to say "thanks!"
Who knows, maybe some day it will become a normal feature. We have a habit of doing that.
