Remove stars and bookmarks


(Kris) #21

I agree - there’s likely a much better way to handle that style if it were moved to that position

You get a blue circle with a number when there are new posts in a topic since you’ve last read it, and you get a grey circle with a number when there are unread old posts within a topic.

It’s one of those “kind of unclear unless you hover and learn” features

Thanks for the explanation. I feel like one number would be enough (showing how many unread posts there are).

While the color can still indicate whether any of them are new.

If that helps save space it seems completely sufficient to me and probably less confusing.

So in your above example, it’d be a blue 93.

:speak_no_evil:

Can we resume this?

If you rotate that by 90 degrees it looks like a yes

I can wait on this, the actual discussion has been done to death already.

Unless @BCHK feels that there’s still a strong case to be made for removing bookmarks as well, this thread can now be closed, in light of stars being deprecated.
