Hard to see 'new thread'

Postby Claudius » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:25 pm

Hi, I like to clear out a section of the forum, games I know about. That means I read all the recent posts so that when I re-navigate to the forum the index of games the forums I have read each post (most recent) are darked out and the ones with new posts are lighted. That part is good.

But the problem is when I go to a 'lighted' game in the index and try to clear the posts I have not read... well the problem is that I cannot distinguish the bold text of an unread thread from the read ones. I don't know if it is my bad eyes, but I would really appreciate a greater difference in contrast.

Thanks so much!
Right Speech has four aspects: 1. Not lying, but speaking the truth, 2. Avoiding rude and coarse words, but using gentle speech beneficial to the listener, 3. Not slandering, but promoting friendliness and unity, 4. Avoiding frivolous speech, but saying only what is appropriate and beneficial.

The font for old vs. new is about the same, but threads with new posts have the "go to first unread message" marker, and so you should be able to distinguish them that way. Or you could use the "What's New" link at the top of the page, and only see threads with new posts.
