Default Unsetting the new message flag

I visit various forums here one or twice a day. I would like to look at the latest posts. but....

If I post a PM, all forums are set to read.

About half the time, if I reply to a thread, the forum is set to read.

If I put my computer to sleep, all threads in the current forum are set to read.

This is extremely annoying and as far as I can see, a unique feature of diyAudio.
Fix it!

That is really strange. Especially the bit about putting your computer to sleep. I'm not too sure how the bowels of the thread updating works, but you can read more about that here:

Unread threads display as read

This was the last major change made to the way this all works.

Thanks for looking into this issue. From what I read in the linked thread, the site is using option 1 and what I am experiencing is exactly what I would expect. I don't know the timeout value, but if I spend too long composing a post or if I put my computer to sleep and come back a long time later, the forum I was reading will be marked read. I often will read part of the posts on a forum on my iPhone, leave it for a while and come back. All of the posts are marked read.

I suppose it is an issue of computer horsepower. I do know that diyAudio can bog down at times. But I think that you can understand my frustration.

Thanks again,
