I think the site designer is trying to drive us all bonkers :shocked:

The 'legend' says that 'coloured' means new posts, 'grey' means no new posts.

At a glance it looks like that the fan games and random ramblings threads have new posts. But no, it's just a bright picture that tells you there are sub-threads. Are there any new postings? Oh, let's make it a surprise so that you have to click on the main heading or the sub headings noted to check if there are any new posts.

Hang on, what pictures are these? ...and what's this one with a big exclamation mark? Perhaps I'd better go back to the main forum page to check the legend again to see what they mean. Oh, there's nothing there about them.

Gosh I do hope I don't get RSI with all this moving the mouse back and forth :dizzy_mad:

Agreed Grandad, and sometimes the 'coloured in new posts icon' works and at other times it doesn't, so for example today the General Discussion icon was grey for me even though it had a (your) new post. So you have to look at the last post date to tell if there are new posts :v2_dizzy_confused2:

Do what I do, Go to the "Quick Links" at the top of the page and then to "Unread Posts". All new posts right there, no scrolling down, deciphering icons or checking dates required.

Don't like it. The green looks like they have put it through a very hot wash. There is a search function at the top right corner which replaces the search box. Works pretty much the same as before.
