I frequent both LumberJocks and SawMillCreek (SMC) forums. SMC has a nice feature (that usually works) of where the link color to a topic will tell me if there are any new replies that I have not read. Bold says that I have either not read this topic or that there are replies that I have not read.

This allows me to scroll through a list of topics and see which ones have new information for me.

Is this possible on LumberJocks? If not please consider adding it as a feature.

Thanks, Jesse

On the pulse page, the far right column will say either “never checked”, “X new in last X minutes” (in green), or “0 new in last X minutes” (greyed out).

You’re right, Rex. But only if you’re signed in.

You can also click on the forums tab. It will display all recent topics from different sections of LJ and on the right side is the time the last poster posted.

I think one of the things Jesse is driving at is more of a bold colour change to the lists, something brighter to easily attract your eye instead of having to sometimes read. In that I would be in favour.
