I read the 'The Lounge' threads, but I have no interest in the 'Pop Quiz' or 'Lets see your watches' ones. Is there any way to flag them so that the icon on the Board Index page turns red when there are other new posts, but ignores those?

Why don't you just clear everything, then only select 'unread posts'. This will then only show you additions that you haven't already seen.
OK, so it will still show the ones you're not interested in, but if you look a few times a day you'll only have a dozen or so threads.
You read the ones you want, and they disappear from the list.
When you're left with the ones that don't interest you, simply click on 'Mark all read' and it clears the sheet until next time you look and there's new stuff added.

Always happy to help if I can.

If the forum helped you, why not help the forum back. Thats the Z4 way! :thumbsup:

One could not possibly imagine which specific current thread you may be referring to :D

I think the above is spot-on. Due to the way our brains are wired, it can be difficult to ignore/scroll past. Almost every day I exert effort to stop myself from posting something argumentative (not this forum).

I only use the new threads option, so unless I go into something I will never see it. There are plenty threads that never come up on my list that way
Current:
911-50 Black - unique spec
X5M - 575 hp of fun in a V8
Abarth 595 Comp.
Golf Clipper - collectors item
Z4 3.0si Black Sapphire
VW ID.3

Previous:
Z4M Silver Grey - non flimper spec (gone to Bing)
Z4 3.0 Toledo

Or you could close you eyes :rofl: :thumbsup:
Now, Sterling grey Z4 2.2 with cup holders, stubby aerial and sport seats. Roadsters ‘cause they’re great with the roof down.
Ford Anglia, Red Sprite, a few MG midgets, MGB Roadster and yellow Ford Capri, all gone many years now.

That explains a lot. You really should open them when trying to keep up with me though. :P :wink:

A Dartmoor meet up would be very nice, I don't think it matters what make of car just as long as your roof is down :thumbsup: I've heard that those MX things are quite hard to keep up with on twisty roads. Let me know when, as long I it doesn't involve climbing those ruddy tors :poke: :D
But not the 6th July please as it’s my wife’s birthday and we usually go out for the day. :thumbsup:

Not ashamed to admit I had a tear in my eye yesterday. You don't have to have met someone to know they were a special human being.
