Also, I was trying to say that anything new since the last time you logged in no matter how long ago would be marked unread, then disappear itself after you log in again and a week goes by. Then anything new since THAT time you logged in would be marked unread for next time, et cetera.
No, it did not, and it would be a terrible idea. I have, in the past, been offline for two weeks, and I'd like to see what posts were made while I was gone.
MageKing17 said:I'd settle for that, but you make a good point. What about a "Mark all read" button for everyone? At least then the effort would not be put into a one-time ordeal.
I would, however, not mind if everyone who was on the old phpBB forum had every post made before the changeover "marked read", instead of having to trawl the archives and manually visit every thread. That would probably take a lot of effort for Ville with very little reward, though, so it's just a minor idea.
... Aha! I found a screenshot of a logged-in phpBB forum. See that button up top, where it says "Marquer tous les forums comme lus"? Yea. That's what I'm talking about. We did indeed already have that button, and now I remember where it was. I'm NOT crazy! (I was going to post an image macro about not being crazy, but Google Images gave me an awful lot of pictures of Charlie Sheen. No.)
