Very handy when you don't have time to read topics in real-time. Toggle color to green to emphasize topic. Toggle color red to de-emphasize (ignore) topic.

Within forums notice the right-hand last post column. If yellow corners click to go to new post instead of last post. See forum bottom for the link "Forum Mark Watch Read".
