...so that you have to open each one to see if any topics were updated.
In addition, the highlighting for updated topics is erratic (sometimes bold, sometimes medium bold, what's up with that?).
Sub-forums don't have update indicators
good one. seconded.
>sometimes bold, sometimes medium bold, what's up with that?
I think the bold ones indicate you have not looked at previously, and medium bold means you have looked at that message before
It's not consistent though. Yesterday I had reason to visit a forum I'd never been to before, and I was surprised to see some of the threads showing as 'updated'.
Well yes, but I don't know why the indicators were there when I'd never visited that forum before.
