Thread Status Icon colours

I might look like a dafty again here

Can the orange thread icons be changed a bit so the look more different?

I struggle to tell the difference a lot of the time. Especially when scrolling down a page so it is really hard to spot new posts. On my laptop it is impossible to see the difference

Does the Bold text not give it away?

Re: Thread Status Icon colours

Errr ... if it's a "New Posts" search, then all the Thread Status icons will be the same colour, otherwise they wouldn't have new posts

Re: Thread Status Icon colours

Unless you use New Posts --> X day ago! Then it shows both read and unread posts [i.e. ALL posts up to the timeframe].

Err, I think I kinda covered it - when you do "New Posts > New Posts" it will show all unread posts, so they will all be the same colour.

If you do "New Posts > 1 day ago" some will be read, so they will be a different colour. And if the colour is still too close, the read posts won't be in bold ... so you have 2 ways of seeing which is which

It shouldnt matter what the icon is acompanied by, the icon should be clear on its own. At the moment I think the two orange icons are to similar so it does not work in every part of the forum.

So ner
