I rely very much upon the bold type to tell me which threads I have read and which I haven't. I've been noticing lately that the vB software seems to randomly choose to unbold stuff I haven't read, as soon as I go into a particular area. For example, I clicked into something (I forget what now) from the sidebar, which was bolded, but inside the forum itself it had become unbolded. When I returned to the main forum page, *everything* was unbolded except for two threads: There were at least 6 or 7 prior to my entry via that click. Like everyone else, I haven't the time (or the will, really) to comb through every single thread in the forum, and as a result I feel like I am missing out on recent posts. Is there a setting which can be changed to keep unread in bold until you have actually read it? please? BEGBEGBEG!
