    I agree, especially the ability to sort The Wall.  As it was, we needed to wade through a lot of inconsequential items to find ones in which we were interested.

    Elle, is there a function to mark “all threads read”?  So I can get the little “G’s” working correctly for current view.

    I’ve been told that the function has been disabled and is being looked at and worked on.

    Read/Unread has changed to the blue bar. (bar color will change eventually to match GBBG’s branding colors)

    Top of each forum is a Mark all topics read feature.

    For new members joining all topics will show Read and their next visit the blue bars will start to show if new topics/replies are posted.

    Amber,  top right corner of the chat window there are three lines, click that and youll see status options.  One of those is “invisible”.
