Lack of interest Unread.png is not clear


Well-known member
This is my little suggestion. I think that the unread.png icon is not very understandable. it's a simple circle and the user, looking at it, doesn't think immediately that clicking on it will take to the first unread message of a thread.

I'm not a designer but I've two possible replacement and I've attached them to this thread.

What do you think?

I would probably associate those icons as redirect icons more than forum-unread.png status icons. I think the opacity difference and the text bolded is enough personally.
