A Bold Question

When reading discussions some topic headers are highlighted and some are not. I can’t figure out, or remember, what the difference is?

They appear to be listed in order of the last reply.

I can’t identify if the bold means I have or have not read some or all of the messages or if I have looked at the messages or replied?

So what are the bold titles?

I think bold titles are the ones you haven’t looked at while the ones not bold are ones that you went in and looked at. Hope I’m right.

I think bold means that you haven’t opened that thread at all (at least that’s how it works for me). On better forum software, bold means that there is a new post that you haven’t looked at yet.

The other guys are right. Bold means you never opened the topic, gray means you have.

Thanks guys.

It would be really nice if there was an indicator for new topics and a different indicator for old topics with new replies and one to indicate you have replied previously or that there is a reply to a prior reply by you.

Oh well, I guess you get what you pay for.
