This may be a stupid question, but why are the folders on the left of threads different colors and some are flaming, etc.?

The red ones are newer threads, the flaming threads have either at least 10 replies or at least 100 views.

If the folder is red it has unread messages in it. Manilla means you read all of them. Flaming means a hot thread with over 15 replies or 150 views.

That doesn't make sense West. I read all the posts in some threads and they stay red.

Give the kid a break. He is having fun. He's got a whole lifetime to get a job and slave away like the rest of us.

You can sit on here for an hour or two, comment two or three times under every subject, and make 30 posts without much problem.

It works exactly as advertised. If it is red when you leave it means a new one came in after you left.

Its still red even if I read the posts while I'm still here.

The folders we're using here didn't come with the board. The default ones are a little confusing. I snagged these from another place when I saw then. They make it very easy to see whether there are unread messages or not.
