  1. Every time I click on the Forums Tab the little picture icon next to each board is black and white. The next day I go on they have color on them. Or sometimes half of them are gray and the rest are colored. Why is this?

    "As you probably have also noticed a black & white icon means no new posts have been made, while a colored icon appears when there are new posts since you last visit on that specific board." --

    Yes, perhaps we should make that more obvious for new members, but what Matt explained is spot on.

    Colored icons = new posts since your last visit.
    B&W icons = nothing new since your last visit.
