I don't know if anyone else gets this but sometimes when I log off and put my screen name back in a lot of threads i've already viewed reset and are viewed as new post. This is really annoying for anyone who visits the forums often. If this is a problem for anyone else will there be anything done about it? I hate seeing new post that ive already read look like new post.

<span style="font-size: small; color: #993300; font-family: comic sans ms,sand">Yup, happens to me, and sometimes when ah refresh looking for new posts. Also annoying is having posts being marked as read when ah know ah haven't read them, but hopefully when they manage to return the feature to show what threads you have replied to this will get fixed</span>

It sounds like the forum software attaches to your account the read/unread status of things and when you switch personas, that status is reset.  It probably shouldn't, but unless you're regularly changing personas I don't see it as a big deal. I sense there may be something I am missing though, so help me understand. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>I have this problem, and I don't switch personae at all.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>I "set all topics as read," which refreshes the page and...y'know, marks everything as read.  Sometimes, if I do an F5 refresh (either after "setting as read" or not), topics I've read / marked as read become "unread" again, even though there are no new posts.</p><p>If I close my browser and open a new window, then come back to the forums, either forums / posts I've marked as read are now unread again, or the entire bloomin' forum is marked as read.</p><p>I have yet to figure out which scenario causes which result, if there even <i>is</i> any correlation and it's not entirely random.  :-/</p>
