I have noticed that a change of avatar seems to to "revive" old posts (if the post was the last in the thread). It makes even a 1 month old post with a new avatar show up as new (blue) again.

That shouldn't happen, but then the algorithm that generates the visited/not colors isn't very good either. If you clear the history on your browser, everything will also go to unread.

It is not really a problem. Just an interesting observation. I noticed it especially with Scott's frequent avatar changes.

Scott, you change your avatar as often as you like. You are a good "test case".

I does anyone know why it does this or is it even possible to find out?

Well Geek, do you know how to fix it or is it just not a big deal?
