Do you like to have a different color for unread topics and posts (a light grey for example),
so you can see easier what's new?

Dominik, that is a great idea and would definitely make it easier to ascertain which we have and haven't read - cool!

The other thing that occurred to me is that when you quote someone, sometimes (we've found it depends on which computer you're on), it's difficult to distinguish between a quote and the reply as the colour is very similar... Just thought I'd mention it, no big deal :yellowhappy:

Sure gets my approval.
This is where my signature will go. My signature will go here. It will be a good signature. You will look at it and say: "That is a signature."

Thanks for your feedback and input. Though the recent poll is still running, I just added this modification to the board today. Unfortunately, I misread the description of it cause the background color won't be changed, but the color of the links.
Modification name: Colored link when new post
Author: JimA
Modification description: This MOD does change the color of the topic-title and forum-name when there are new posts in it.
According to several users on phpbb.com it's working fine so I'm sure we won't have any problems with it. If you don’t like the selected color much (#BC2A4D) I can change it at any time. :)

Watch out for these icons which indicate topics with new posts, too :)
