I really like it - just not sure what it means if the folder is coloured red? The number of times the topic has been viewed is also a great idea. I would still like to see a modification on the 'Change Forum' bars allowing one to right click on them and 'Open In New Browser'. I e-mailed you about this two weeks ago, but perhaps you've been busy!

Thanks, Johan. I like the idea of the buttons, however the format of the responses appears a bit cluttered to me. Perhaps the buttons could be moved to the first line as it is in the initial postings. That looks a lot cleaner to me.

Alright, how's this? They are all level now. However, I could not put them at the top of each reply as that doesn't leave enough room for the topic. Have a look at some post with a long topic and you'll see what I mean.

Modifications look nice. However you might want to adjust the flaming folder graphic a bit. I have my browser set to loop images only once, so once the loop is completed it just sits on the last frame, in which just 3 pixels of the flame remain. You might want to change the image so that the last frame shows a bit more so that it's obvious that this is a "hot topic".

More thinking... using the folder icon for the main post is appropriate since you can think of each topic as a folder with all the messages inside. So the individual messages shouldn't have folder icons.
If you want some other icon, perhaps a little message icon. I've also seen some boards (particularily those that run UltimateBulletinBoard software, like at http://www.planebusiness.com) that allow each poster to pick from several icons. Silly but neat and adds variety.
Of course if you're planning on fully-threading the boards (in other words, make it so that replies to a reply show up as a reply to that message rather than a reply to just the original) then having folder icons for each would make sense.

I like the new interface. Those three buttons look nice... However, I agree that the Suggest Deletion button will be used too often and unless Johan is implementing an automated system for analysis, it's gonna just add up workload...
