    I like the new tweaks that are done in 1.2. One small comment, change the star to something else thats more related to watched threads (one/two eyes) instead of a star that could be interrupt as something else.

    Totally agree, an eye would be wonderful.

    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.

    I was thinking the threads only received a one star rating

    I thought it was a post that was liked a lot or something haha, definitely would change it, even a magnifying glass or something.

    I wouldn't care if it was changed to something simple like this eye2.png ...and I think there is room on the sprite sheet so whatever, if it happens cool.

    I wouldn't mind something like this.[​IMG]

    Since XF doesn't have star ratings (that I can see), I interpreted the star as a Favorite.

    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...
    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 ...

    A magnifying glass to me says inspect more than anything...

    When I think 'Binoculars' in general, it makes me think of sightseeing, birdwatching and Marty McFly's peeping tom adolescent father.

    Actually now that I think about it...binoculars work great for this...(though I would want them to be one color really Search-2-icon_WhiteOut.png ) because when I see an eye I could think watching it but the first thing that might come to my mind is "oh I have seen that already and don't remember it...must not be important n/m".

    With binoculars it gets more to the point of watching something (like a baseball game or nature) of specific content, and as I pointed out with an eyeball one could be interpreting 'see' instead of 'watch' very easily, especially someone new to the forum.

    Gold/yellow stars are synonymous with ratings.

    Either a small eye icon or alternatively the mini avatar that indicates you've posted on a thread.

    This is my suggestion courtesy of @Shelley which is used in my Thread Watchers add-on:

    Please use Shelley's/Chris's thread watcher's icon cause that star looks like threads are getting rated one star by a hater.

    I think it's a better fit with the other icons:

    Couldn't you or @Shelley release it in the resource manager since it's probably likely they won't even change it?

    These watched star icons are so annoying to look at. I'm thinking about using this Stylish firefox extension to replace them with that glasses icon.
