Topic: Those little pink cups...
Message: Posted by: Mr Amazing (May 29, 2002 07:56AM)
Please replace one of those pink cup icons (one meaning "unread messages" and the other meaning "thread with more than X messges". I'm uncertain of X). They are next to [b]impossible[/B] to tell apart, and causes a lot of uncertainty to wether there is new information in the thread.

It's shouldn't be too difficult to just use another icon, right? Anything would be better than the current. Perhaps even no icon at all for when there are no new messages?

...and while we're at it; it would be great if the little "GO"-link would lead to the first unread message instead of the very last message in the threads.

Ok, thanks for a great site!

Oooups - 3 seconds after posting this I noted that Kaliix pointed out the same thing about the icons. Sorry for that. Well, I guess it just shows many of us would appreciate it ;)

All the best,

Here are the new icons, and what they represent:

Forums and topics with new (unread) posts in them will have the red coffee mug (this icon is the same as it was):

Forums and topics with no new (unread) posts in them will have the white coffee mug:

Forums and topics that are locked, AND have new (unread) posts in them will have the red coffee cup with a lock on it:

Forums and topics that are locked, AND have NO new (unread) posts in them will have the white coffee cup with a lock on it:

The "sticky" topic icon remains the same, sticky topics will stay at the top of the topic list:

I got rid of the "hot topic" icons. They indicated that there were more than 15 posts in a given topic, and that information is readily available from the "Replies" column next to the topic title.

I noticed the new icons immediately today. This is a much simpler format. Nice change.
