    New Post not an Orange Folder?

    I submitted a new post in Hardware Forum yesterday...and right away, I noticed that it was a <font color=yellow>yellow </font color=yellow> folder and not an <font color=ff8c00>orange </font color=ff8c00> folder that is given to new posts.
    Why? A glitch? Or is it not considered important enough to be given an <font color=ff8c00>orange </font color=ff8c00> folder ?
    Sorry, but don't know how to get the 'folder' icon into this post.

    Just noticed that THIS one isn't <font color=ff8c00>orange</font color=ff8c00> either ! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Re: New Post not an Orange Folder?

    Any new post that YOU create has already been viewed by you, meaning that it doesn't appear as orange for you, but does for everyone else.

    Hope that Helps! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    It is only <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/newclosedfolder.gif> unread if you haven't read it.
    On the basis you wrote your own post, it is not unreasonable to assume you also read it, therefore it is automatically a <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/closedfolder.gif> read folder.
    Or do you type blind ? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    PS - yellow text does not show up too well on some skins - see attached...

    Leif...I know that the yellow didn't show up very well, but as I didn't know how to do a yellow or orange folder...I had to just do it that way... <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>
    Granted, I wrote the post & viewed it...but just now, when Kel answered my post, the folder was orange.
    Oh well...not worrying about it.

    "the folder was orange" because there was a NEW messge to YOU, that you had NOT read as of yet. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
