[12:29:06] <Kazzie> Hi there, getting back to a long-forgotten tab and seeing Bytram's advice to dorp my suggestion here.
[12:29:10] <Kazzie> *drop
[12:29:52] <Bytram> dorp away!
[12:29:54] <Bytram> =)
[12:31:06] <Kazzie> On the SoylentNews Message Center page, unread messages are marked with an asterisk, and have been for a long time. But in article comments, new posts are just displayed as normal, and old posts are "greyed out" instead.
[12:31:34] <Kazzie> Would it be much hard work to change the MC's styiling so that it dims read messages in the same manner?
[12:32:06] <Bytram> hrrrrm
[12:32:58] <Kazzie> (The thought occurred to me when I went straight to the MC URL, rather than clicking on the sidebar link. For a brief moment, I though I had a whole screenful of new messages, until I remembered I was supposed to look for the asterisk.)
[12:33:12] <Bytram> don't know, offhand. It does not *sound* that difficult to do it... as a hack. With *proper* CSS styles... might be a bit more work.
[12:33:14] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:33:26] <Bytram> is an interesting idea
[12:33:27] <chromas> New posts should say "New" on the right end too
[12:33:45] <Bytram> posts? stories? comments?
[12:33:51] <chromas> comments
[12:33:51] <Bytram> oh, umean msgs
[12:34:01] <Bytram> comments already DO that
[12:34:04] <Bytram> *New*
[12:34:27] * Bytram checks capitalization
[12:35:06] <Bytram>
[12:35:06] <Bytram> *New*
[12:35:07] <Kazzie> Well, at least I've done my civic duty and passed the suggestion up the chain. Fiddle, play, or trash it as you see fit. :)
[12:35:28] <Bytram> Kazzie: do you, by chance, have an account on github?
[12:36:14] <Kazzie> No, but I can wander off and create one if needed. (I'm more of an EE dabbler by trade these days.)
[12:36:37] <Bytram> #g It's Electric!
[12:36:38] <MrPlow> https://www.youtube.com - "May 8, 2017 ... Just a couple of fleet footed Bladedancing Hunters at the tower having a little fun. Song: Marcia Griffiths - Electric Boogie (The Electric Slide)"
[12:37:08] <Bytram> that would be the best way to make sure that it does not fall thru the cracks
[12:37:16] <Bytram> here is a list of current issues: https://github.com
[12:40:52] <Bytram> gotta get ready for work... hope to check back in before I leave
[12:41:44] <Bytram> Kazzie: thanks for the suggestion! BTW, there are actually two different MC pages; one when you 1st load your messages, and a different one after you take some action on one of you messages (like delete it).
[12:42:55] <Bytram> Oh, I see you re-upped your subscription this past january... thank you!
[12:54:40] <Kazzie> I've got a github account together, and am putting in an Issue there.
[12:55:19] <Kazzie> Re: subscription, I'd forgotten that it was set to be a recurring payment, so I seem to have double-payed (or paid a year in advance) too. It's all money to a good cause!
