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!

Jason,

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,
Bob
