    Default New post indicators

    Within the forums, topics with new posts have visually distinct icons. But in the forums list, forums with new posts are marked with icons that are only faintly blue. Is it possible to change that?

    Edit: Actually, I lied. New posts are indicated everywhere by indistinct blue icons. The reddish icons I thought were new posts are, in fact, "popular" posts with more than some threshold number of comments.

    Yes, i noticed that too. I plan to use coffee cup images for that purpose. :)
    For example, for forums with new posts i can use a coffee cup with smokes on it. For forums without new posts, a coffee cup without smokes can be used. :)
    I can also use different colors for coffee cups.
    What do you think?

    I will do something this. But i will need some time to update it. I have to find some graphic designer...

    Sounds good to me! I like the idea of using both shape and color cues. Good UI design. :D
