Yeah, i just saw most of the new features today and didn't like the star at all. I think the dev in here are just testing something out. I am hoping they are planing to bring bookmarks or fav threads as options? who knows? but star to be label as watched is just out of place.
Generally anything that is relative to sight would suffice...if it is not getting changed to something along those lines...i don't really see the point in it being changed under the same basic idea of the snippet beneath...I wouldn't mind something like this.
Either way now that I think of it...the resource manager has stars and that being the case with stars better used for rating things...I am starting to feel like some simple one color icon would be ideal ...~ I interpreted the star as a Favorite.
