on thread display. The fact that when a new post is made within a thread and the text becomes bolded is (I feel) a adequate enough indication that a new post has been made. My suggestion is to remove the star image keeping this area less cluttered. Perhaps an alternative image for someone "who's posted" in that thread can be put in that area instead? Just a thought, but I think the star image should be removed. Bolded text is enough imo.
