A more distinctive treatment for "new topics" would be useful

Currently, there is only a subtle difference between topics in a forum I have read, and ones that are new.

I do use subscription to get a count of how many new topics there are. When I go to the topic list, it can be very hard to tell which are which. Especially if there is glare on my screen, or my eyes are tired.

I’d love to here I just missed flipping a switch in preferences. If that doesn’t exist, could you forward this request to the forum software vendor please? It will make life easier for those of us with less-than-perfect vision.



Hey @hwine,

Thank you for being here! And thanks a lot for taking the time to share your feedback, accessibility issues are very important to us. I’ll pass it along to the team for discussion and post any updates here. 

In the meantime, we’re looking forward to seeing you around!




Hi @hwine,

Thanks again for taking the time to provide this feedback, we’ve shipped font changes to make unread messages notably bold. I hope this helps!
