  • General discussion

  • If I've opened and read a thread, the thread title no longer appears in bold. When someone subsequently adds to the thead, I'd like the title to appear bold again. currently it does not.

  • We still want someway to show you threads you've never seen before which is the bold.
    Some forum systems then have some other visual indication that new items are in the threads you've already read, which we do not.

    One suggestion I have is adding a new filter "Unread Messages", we'd then show a combination of threads you've seen that have new items and threads you've never seen. But we'd still have bold for the threads you've never looked at.

    This will also allow you to select "My Threads" and then filter on seeing just the threads that have new replies.

    thoughts?

    Okay, so then that's my new suggestion. I don't want a filter. Well, maybe I want both. I don't know.

    But: I want to see the last reply stat for each thread (who/when), and I want an indicator that the thread has changed read state.

    All threads are new at some point, so who cares if it's bold or not. Set them to bold when someone replies, that's my suggestion as reflected in earlier posts in this thread.
