    Is there any way that once the site is working correctly again and everyone gets a breather, that there could be a way to mark an entire thread as unread? There are a few that I have read all the way through and would like to read again, but I use 3 different computers (desktop in the morning, work computer at lunch, kindle at night) and use the "go to last unread" button to be able to read seamlessly on each device since page numbers don't always mesh between the computers and the kindle I can't just remember the page number.

    So, if I could just un-read the entire thread, then I could start back at the beginning.

    Couldn't you just "un-watch" the thread altogether. Then go to the first post and "watch" - seems to me that would do what you want?

    I tried that on the old version but it didn't work, I'll try it on this one as well and see if this one is set up differently.

    I think it's because something on the site remembers who has "seen" what and will take you to the first thing you haven't seen even if you were already 5 pages into the thread when you subscribed/watched it.

    I believe that this function would have to erase that "memory" of you having seen that post before. But like I said, I haven't tried it on this version yet.

    I tried it on one I have watched for a long time and unwatch, go out come back in post 1 and it does seem to work, brings me to page 1.

    OOPs, it doesn't list unread.

    Nope, still pops me back into the "last read" thing.. which sucks, because one of the threads I was reading I was somewhere in 2014 I think and now it pops me in at April 2017... so I lost 3 years...
