    I find that both comforting and appropriate.

    To make things even less understandable, apparently there are THREE colors when in a forum:

    1970s: [ S70 ]
    1980s: [ BB | X79-3 | 2x X80 | X100 | S270 | S281 | 2x S284 | S285? | S300AD ]
    1980s: [ X82 | Detonator | Liberator Elite | 2x Nightbirds ]
    1990s: [ 2x S100 | X170 | X170T | SB602F | SF IV | SF V | BB | NB I | NB Dlx ]
    2000s: [ SF IV | BB-90 ]
    2010s:
    [ NS BB ]
    Amps: [ G300 | G500 | G600 ]

    I see boldface thread titles for items that have had replies since I've last visited LTG.

    If you look down at the far lower-left corner of a forum index page, you'll see an explanation of the various "post icons" (two flavors each of red & blue, & more).

    I agree there is an opportunity to be logical and consistent that was missed.

    I think it just clicked for me that the threads with new unread posts aren't showing up in bold all the time and that's what's confusing me.

    Maybe I'm just easily confused.

    I have numerous instances of threads where there are unread posts NOT showing up with bold or any other indication that there are unread posts. There is a very, very good chance that this will happen if I am logged "long enough". "long enough" might be as low as 30 minutes. New Posts similarly fails for me, in that there are unread posts that don't show up as new.

    I use Firefox on Windows 10 on a laptop. This may have started when the BB software was upgraded several years ago but it has been easier for me to just log in and out than to try and figure out what is wrong or different in my environment.

    Boy, you guys are noticing stuff that I don't. Are you talking about the "New Posts" link at the top of the page (between "Activity Stream" and "New Group Messages")? That's pretty much the only way I view LTG posts. Threads that have posts that I haven't read are in bold, and go non-bold after I read them.

    I guess I'm not following the inconsistency(s) here. I've found the "New Posts" link to be very reliable unless I time out and then the list starts over for a new point in time (as if I'd read all the other ones from the previous time I used it). I'm probably not saying this well. ;)

    Oh, and it's always Chrome on a Mac for me, although it worked the same way with Safari, and I think Firefox on Windows (though I almost never use that).
