    Re: Unread Folders Not Colored Red?

    I frequently see the reverse: the folder icon for a thread I've already read will become red again. Apparently, the process that stores which threads one has read is not perfect. But it's probably too much work to debug and correct.

    >>... the folder icon for a thread I've already read will become red again.

    I have experienced this and put it down to there being new posts made in between the time I opened a forum or thread, and the new post being read.
    In other words, the process is correctly identifying the fact that a new post has been made since you last opened a forum/thread, but is not intelligent enough to know that you did actually read it and so not mark it as new.

    Hope that makes sense. If not, I'll edit it so that it shows up as new again <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Yes, that happens sometimes, because I usually have two or three instances of the Lounge open at the same time, but sometimes I open a forum, and a thread from two or three days ago in which I was and still am the last poster will be red again.

    What's frustrating is that as a result of the folder icon being red again, the thread gets read again.

    Buy a different video card?
    Fine tune your monitor?
    Use Internet Explorer?
