Perhaps there is something not set quite right in my 'profile' (or elsewhere?) but I do notice that the messages and forum icons change color (at least) when I've read or marked a forum as all read over at elYsiun.
This version here at .org does not seem to modify the icons...at least not perceptively to my eyes.
Hi, (and, yes, I am replying to my own post!)
I did notice that there *is* is difference between posts that are read and those that are not.... the "darker grey" vs. the "lighter grey".... right?
Ahhhh, so subtle...
