It's great to have those icons, but it's hard to tell them apart at a glance. Maybe the icons for older builds should be grayed-out?

Yeah, that's true. The only difference between B26 and B25 icon is a pixel, graying out older versions seems like a good idea.

That's a good idea. Went ahead and implemented it.

Would take some time to get used to, the grayed out icons make me think those threads don't have new posts.

It does seem slightly drastic, since plenty of the greyed out build mods still work without problems, but it is an improvement over being entirely without the feature.

Maybe instead of being entirely greyscaled, a partial desaturation would look better?

I tried partial desaturation, but it doesn't quite work. It's either nearly indistinguishable from the original colour, or it's too close to grey. I can't seem to find a middle ground, especially considering that it'll look different from monitor to monitor.

Lizard, if you want to give it a try, go ahead. You're a lot more qualified to choose a colour that works well with the theme than I am. :P

Yeah, those work really nicely. Thanks, Duh.
Also, I removed the "OLD" icon, because I don't think anything was even using it, and I don't expect any new <B23 mods to come out anytime soon.
