When quickly browsing through the front page, I actually find it quite hard to tell apart read and unread topics. It appears that the titles of unread topics are typeset in a slightly bolder font than read topics (or is is just black vs gray?), but it’s not really sufficient for my eyes the make a quick judgment Am I the only one experiencing this difficulty?
+1, Me too. I’d like unread to be in black bold (as in Google Groups and Gmail).
For the power user, one solution is to press
g, u to g to unread. And then
g, h when you’re done to go home. But most users won’t do this so I think it’s still a good idea to consider making unread more prominent.
BTW, @richard, you should have made this a poll using the [poll] syntax!
- Keep unread formatting as it is
- Make it bold and black
- Something else (reply to this topic)
