Is there any way to better differentiate threads with new posts from threads that have already been read? The differences right now are so subtle that I'm having trouble telling the difference.
The threads with new posts are still bolded as with the old version, but the bold text doesn't stand out as well as it did with the old software version. I agree with Adam that it's difficult to see the bold text.

It's disappointing that Watched Threads now shows all watched threads and not just the unread ones. Small quibble but the page is way too busy for my eyes now.

"Watched Threads" always showed ALL of a member's watched threads, Brian. It's just that before, it was always VERY CLEAR which of the threads were unread and wich were read. The owners are working now on fixing that.

It used to be that all watched threads with checkboxes was on a Manage Watched Threads page but now that's the default. There was a way to view Watched Threads and only see unread ones because I did it for years!

I always had this bookmarked:


And that showed unread Watched Threads.

And then I believe that all Watched Threads was this:


Now the former is the latter!

It is what it is. New software always adds something while taking something else away!

How do you like that?!? I never knew. I'm always amazed at how people use the same software so differently.

This morning, forum threads with new posts in them were highlighted with blue title text. Now there's nothing at all to indicate this. Threads with new posts look exactly the same as threads that have been completely read.

This should be fixed now. Let me know if this is better
