As stated in the newsletter (link was missing, I know) we've added a more robust "Mark As Read" feature on the forum. The previous system was very basic and didn't work as well as some of us would have wanted. The problem is that proper "mark as read" features are often big resource hogs (imagine tracking every post that every member has read or not read and when the read it PHEW). We were reluctant to add this feature but now that we've made some server upgrades (thanks to those of you who support the forum with Bumper sticker and Store purchases) we're hoping that we can support a better "Mark As Read" system. Here is how it works: You login to the forum and every topic that has a new post since your last visit will be bold and have a little chick marking that it hasn't been read. For example, check out the Recent Posts Page. As you click on a topic and navigate back to one of the other pages the topic will be marked as read. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you logoff or if you remain inactive for over 60 minutes all the posts that were new BEFORE you logged off or BEFORE you went idle will automatically be marked as read. Fortunately any new posts that people make AFTER you logged off or AFTER you went idle will be marked as new. We hope you enjoy a bit of an easier reading / forum experience!
