New way to show new posts in threads?

This may just be an issue of me not being used to it, but I find the way new posts are shown to be a bit confusing. It seems as though a thread title is bolded if there's a new post in that thread since you last read it. That's fine, I have no problem with that. My comment/concern is that this bolded feature appears to go away after a certain period of time (perhaps a day?), so you have no way of knowing whether you've read a thread or not after that time period passes (some you know, but less busy threads you may not remember).

Anyways, I was wondering if there was a way to change this to keep threads you haven't read yet bolded until you actually read them?

Just a thought/suggestion that I think would make the forums easier to use/follow.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

I am looking at the settings, If I am not able to sort it out, I will ask Ndwariga to sort it.

Sorry to seem like I'm harping about this or that I'm demanding something, but is there any news on this front? It doesn't appear to be any different than before. I ask about this because I'd like to get more active with the FMCN forums, but minor things like this are preventing me from doing so because I can't tell what threads I've read and haven't read. Thanks for any help.

For example, I didn't even realize until today that you had replied to this thread....and you replied January 5th....it's February 14th.
