Default Another minor thing I noticed

Y'know, how, on the main page, the list of new topics have steering wheels next to them?

Y'know... Black for new/viewed and gray for old/already viewed?

Maybe it's a cookie problem or maybe you just don't care :P... but anyway..

If I click every thread with a black steering wheel, then go back and refresh the page, they are gray...

BUT... if I close the internet browser, type in www.carforum.net, and go to the page, all of the steering wheels that had changed from black to gray have all defaulted back to black.

...am I making sense?

This was reproducable in both Firefox and IE.

That is because the browser is saving the page in temporary internet folder. When you type it in, the browser loads what is save on your computer, which is faster than downloading. When you refresh, you tell the browser to download the page again.

Hm.... it seems like you're saying the opposite of what I'm saying though.

If it's being saved on my computer, it should load it with all gray steering wheels since I've clicked every thread, but when I type it in from a blank IE or Firefox window, they are all black again.

However, if I simply refresh the homepage after clicking everythread, they remain gray.

Maybe I'm the one that's confused.. I dunno -_-'. I didn't know if it was a problem or just irrelevant.

I figured I might as well point it out regardless.
