When there are new posts in a thread, the colour in the circle next to the thread title is orange. When there are no new posts, it's white. If you open the thread, the colour turns to white. If you don't open it, it remains orange until you open the thread. Now, there are dozens of threads that I'm not interested in and never open, so all the subforums (These good people, Concerts, Polls etc) are always orange to me. I think it would be better that if you don't open the orange threads, the next time you log in they would appear white instead of staying orange permanently, in case you don't want to open every single uninteresting topic every time there are new posts in them. Now in the Board index page everything is always orange even if there had not been new posts for ages.

Most (if not all) other forums I read are that way and I think it's better. For example it would help noticing if there are new bootlegs in Trading & Bootlegs. Now the orange colour in the Board index page doesn't mean anything because I have unread posts in topics that got their last posts six months ago. It is more difficult to check the date and the time when the last post was written and try to remember if I've read it after that.

This is my opinion. What do you others think?
