That would be one possible solution, but it implies that users reload the index page, which might not be the case. In principle, the link can be added at the top of *all* pages, though.
I figured it could be something like the indicator that shows when at least one new post has been made. It doesn't matter if it's not immediately updated after checking the reposts page.
Yes, but if the link was only on the index page and you would have to reload the page anyway to see if there are new requests, you could reload the request page in the first place. If the link was on all pages, it would be a different story, but still a half solution. Ideal would be to indicate all new (unseen) files with red color or something on the request page itself as well (although the list is already sorted by first the number of requests and then the last request time decreasing). I will think about it.
How about having two buttons similar to the Like button - one to make a request, the other to acknowledge it. Then on the Requests page, sort by thread title (so Requests and Acknowledgements are shown together). Display Requests in red and Acknowledgements in green. It doesn't matter how many of each are shown and the timeout will eventually remove all of them with no further user intervention. If you also display the names of Requesters and Acknowledgers, reposters will know who to blame and requesters will know who to thank.
If there was an acknowledgement button, I would put it on the request list page for faster access. On the other hand, it would be necessary to check the exact hash of the acknowledged file
I wouldn't like to display the nicknames of users who requested or acknowledged the files due to privacy reasons.
