Clear unread posts as read?

Postby andoroido » Tue Jul 26, 2011 10:10 am

Since the board got revamped I've noticed a small trifling little annoyance for me.

The index is divided into folders, and in each folder are posts. Folders show up as new/unread material
when there is new/unread material (of course), but say if I chose to never check a post, eventually that post would no
longer count "unread". Or at least that's how it used to be.

But now they do, it seems. So because I chose not to read certain posts 2 months ago, that folder always shows up as having new/unread material for me.
So now all folders always show up as new/unread material for me, even if nothing new has been posted since I last checked in.
So it's just a mild annoyance not knowing which folders actually have new material, and which just have old new :?: material I never looked at.
These days I just look at the dates instead.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there some switch that can be flipped somewhere?
Not worth the trouble if it's a big deal.

Thanks for all.

Just below where you login/logout on the home page is something that says 'mark forums read'. That does the same job as logging out used to do. I just use it last thing before I logout if I need to.
I'm just a 'girl' who wants to become a fembot whats wrong with that?

Yes, just look for the "Mark forums read" link at the right of the page near the top. It appears on the main Fembot Central page and on the front page of each separate forum.
