    Default Raging against the dimming of the light?

    With the new font I'm finding* that there's less of a contrast between normal font and bold, so that in the My Posts list it's less easy to recognize the threads with unread posts in them from read ones. The distinction is clear enough when there are four or five 'to-read' threads at the top, but when there's a singleton lower down - it might escape notice.

    b

    PS* Note the aspect. It's taken a while for me to register the change, so I can't date it precisely.
    PPS Dylan Thomas wasn't talking about eyesight, I know.

    If by 'my area' you mean your User Control Panel, you don't post to the forums from there. There are various ways, but the simplest is to click on Forums, scroll down and click on the one that interests you. Then either click on New Thread or - to join in an ongoing discussion - Post Reply.

    But don't click on Reply to ask a question that isn't relevant to what's being discussed - as you did here (I should really have sent you a Private Message ['PM'] to explain this, but I thought you might not know where to look.)
