  • Bold Titles in the Various Forums

    I have noticed that the lists of threads in the various categories of forums show some threads with their titles
    in bold font while other titles are not bold. They don't remain the same either. What is the
    significance of this? Thanks for any replies.

    Did you notice the envelope icons to the left of the titles and how they're different depending on whether the text is bolded or not? When viewing the list of threads, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find a legend for the thread icons. The open envelope means that the thread contains posts you have not read. The closed envelope means you've read all the posts in that thread. I'll leave the difference between the blue and pink icons as an exercise.

    Of course, in order for the Forum to know whether you've read posts or not, it must know who you are, so you need to be signed in.

      The closed envelope means you've read all the posts in that thread. ...[I got that. Actually haven't read them all; have just been there]
      I'll leave the difference between the blue and pink icons as an exercise. ... [Mine have Pink, Blue and Grey - I still see no correlation - I'm too sedentary for exercise]

        Here are three post icons. Click on the image.

        Are you telling me that you see no difference, other than color, between the top two icons and the bottom one? If you don't, there's nothing more I can say. If you do, which envelope icon is used with bold text? Which envelope icon is used with regular text? Now find an instance anywhere on the forum where the association of the icon image and text bolding differ from the example. (hint: there are none, ipso facto correlation).

          NO ! I said "open & closed *legends* look the same."
          Your comments make reference to Pink and Blue, but say nothing about Grey. Certainly I can see the difference in those.
          In your attachment, BOTH Pink and Blue have Bold titles, so there seems to be no correlation there.
          Please just forget the entire matter, Admin. I'm sorry I asked. I'll get clarification from one of my Moderator friends
          in a private conversation.

            You said you didn't.

            Now you say:

            In your attachment, BOTH Pink and Blue have Bold titles, so there seems to be no correlation there.

            From the legend:
            A closed gray envelope icon indicates a thread with no new posts.
            A closed pink envelope icon indicates a hot thread with no new posts.
            An open blue envelope icon indicates a thread with new posts.
            An open pink envelope icon indicates a hot thread with new posts.

            So... the correlation is this:
            open envelope of any color - thread contains new posts - text is bold
            closed envelope of any color - thread contains no new posts - text is regular
