New posts will only appear now if there are actually "new posts" for you to read. With the old system people were complaining that they would mark forums read and the threads would still appear. This is because of the old system that vBulletin used back in the 3.0.x days. They have a better thread marking system in the new version that removes the thread after you view it and it will not reappear until there is something new for you to see in it.

THANK YOU!!! I feel the same way. When it was new, it was a dark blue, if there wasn't anything new, it was light blue. That was good enough for me.

I don't remember a color scheme, as much as things were in the order to which they were responded to. (whether you responded or not). It was so much easier to find all the postings! Since this is the only forum I frequent, it's the only one I'm used to.

I have to say I quite like the new feature. When it first happened it confused me but since I worked it out, I have thought it an improvement. When I logged on tonight (Monday) for the first time since Thursday, it showed that I had 283 new posts to look at. I find it quite pleasing to see the total disappearing each time I post. It's like crossing something of a "To Do" list!!! LOL

I didn't like it at first, I thought maybe the whole forum society got together and decided they didn't like my posts and were not putting them up, because I would click back to new posts after adding one, and I wasn't there!

Now I like it, because really, I don't always need to be number one.
I'm just fine at the bottom of the heap.
