hahah I love artists. The last thing on my mind as important to get fixed is the theme, but it's the only thing people get upset about when it's messed up for a few minutes.

I gotta agree with Brando. I like to weed through threads when I have the time. Having the forum leave the threads unread but still displaying to me whether there has or hasn't been new threads in a forum is much easier. I find the board overwhelming now when everytime I click on it every forum is lit up. Which is why I'm just now responding to this thread.

OH! Here, this should solve my problem. This is roughly what it's going to look like when it's done, so if you want to make comments, comment on this instead of the dean-is-fiddling-with-stuff-on-and-off-between-work-half-finished version.

http://www.deanwelsh.com/forum/gz_fin_candidate.jpg that should do it. There will be another link under the orange bit for tutorials too.

Very useful feature. I use it all the time now. I hated the old way because if my mac went to sleep I had to try and figure out which posts I hadn't read because they weren't marked unread anymore. Now I can go away and come back as much as I want and read at my leisure.
Oh, goodness. Look at my wrist. I gotta go.

Same. Now I only miss stuff from actively not reading the thread, rather than just missing that someone posted because I clicked out to another site.

Okay, that's much better.

Still not as good as the original boards though.:p

But what if I want to read some threads later and still want to know if new topics have been posted to a forum section? If I don't "mark as read" all the threads then it always looks like something new is in the forum.

Sooo click mark as read then? it's exactly the same thing as it used to do when you just left the site except you control it now because it's smarter.


Edit: OH! I get it, you're thinking when you come here you click it. No. You mark em as read when you're done, that way when you come back all the new stuff is new. Or am I really not following?
