      Description

      The Forums main page (http://www.java.net/forum) never shows the green "Forum Contains New Posts" icon. All the icons down the first column of the table are always gray ("Forum Contains No New Posts").

      The green icon are shown only when I am logged in. The green icons turn gray as soon as I log out.

        The current design of these indicators is linked to each user. Therefore, each post that has not been seen by a logged on user is flagged as new (green) and after the user sees it it will be marked as not new (gray). When not logged in the site treats the user as anonymous and it cannot determine if the post has been seen by the user and displays gray icon.

        Perhaps we could keep the existing logic for logged on users and update the logic for anonymous users so that any post within a predetermined amount of time (1 day?) will be flagged as new (green).
