What's with the BIG GREEN buttons?

Crumbly Writer

I assume it's the same as the white background, a loud "Yo, you haven't seen this yet!" But is there any difference between the two?

You can click the green dot to mark a thread as read. and you can click the gray dot to mark a thread unread if you need to for some reason.

Just like for stories on the site.

CW,

I see a big green circle to the left of the threads with a post I've not yet read, and the text of the thread is in bold. For those where I've read all the posts it's a smaller black circle and the text is not in bold - the background is the same for both - - well, for me, it is.

The green dot makes it easier to tell which i have to look at. I suspect it was introduced because many people have their own colour systems for their browsers overriding what SOL sends.

I like that functionality, and I'd not found it out until I read this.

Thanks, Lazeez. I figured there was some functionality I was missing. Aside from the 'what colors are you using now?" question, it seems to be primarily so you can selectively mark a forum as read or not (say after you post an entry and don't feel like reading your own words to mark it as read).

Thanks for the buttons Lazeez.

Now I don't have to open every topic to mark it as read even if I am not interested in the thread.

Yes, I often used the 'mark all read' feature at GG.

Just like Frank Sinatra singing "New York, New York", a thanks so nice, he had to say it twice!
