Buzz: Product Feedback

Color alert or special flag for new discussion board posts

Feature idea (LEVEL 2)
Melissa Moreno

 In BrainHoney, new (unread) discussion board posts appeared with a different color background until they had been read.  They also got that new post colored background when there was a new post nested within that post that had been unread.  Could you add this feature back in Buzz?  

As a teacher of 6 - 10 full rolling enrollment courses, I am spending a lot of time on my discussion boards hunting for new posts and opening up old threads to make sure that there are no hidden new threads on those discussion boards.  

Don't get me wrong.  I love all of the cool new features that you have added to Buzz, but you left some very important time saving features (for the teacher at least) behind when you did the switch over.  We are sinking in the amount of time that the loss of these features has added to our grading and response time.
