For what it's worth, the "New" icon should appear on the post's/reply's title in threaded view especially when there are a lot of replies, although I can navigate those via date and time. The "New" flag would help, though.

I stuck with the size used by the original garish "New" icon for my template, out of consideration for the possibility that the pixel-dimensions are hard-coded, and so replacement would be as pain-free as could be for the guys who already have a lot of their plates.
As for preferences...looking at them again, a day removed, I like #4 if only because it gives a nod to the red & blue MacTech colors already established. But I lean further toward #5 because of its get-out-of-the-wayness.
Regarding flashy things: I've stated my piece on that already.

I'm finding that the blue/black (read/unread) doesn't always stick. I'll come in and see posts from yesterday (or earlier today, even) are back to black, but I know I've read them. And I ignore the New box, because it always says New. However, the white/yellow folder thingie, once inside a thread, it's holding up pretty well.
I only mention these things, because I want to be a distraction from the critical stuff, like size and color and demanding an entirely new setup because the lighting angle isn't perfect.
