|Something else to keep in mind about the various thread features and other enhancements which can be bought: you'll see them all if you are using IE, but you won't necessarily see them in other browsers -- some features, yes, but not all -- so some of those features are lost on those of us who prefer other browsers. It obviously doesn't bother me enough to make me use IE, but you could be spending for an effect we won't all see. Just a thought.
I didn't see the different colors at first because I am using firefox so I am glad the browser limitation was mentioned - For the sake of curiosity I switched to IE view - which can be done right from the firefox browser with Internet Explorer in a Mozilla/Firefox tab.
I did not know if every one with firefox was aware of this option. I didn't know about this until recently - it helps with IE only pages and seeing various features like different colored titles here.
I got here through the cat lounge - general forum but I am new.
The communities I am more established in I often get to a thread from the links in my e-mail notifications - in communities where I have duties I often use new post feature for the same reason the moderator above mentioned . . . How well established one is as well as how frequently one visits would also serve to determine how the person arrives in any given thread. It seem like newbies or less than daily visitors would more than likely enter in through the front page - thus the cat lounge route.
