Since the forum maintenance, after I read a forum I click the "Set all topics read" link to clear the new topics out that I'm not interested in reading. But every time I come back to the boards after having close the previous session down, everything is back to being a new topic. The stuff I actually read and the stuff I marked read are all back to showing as having new posts.

Same here.  Even happens on posts that I'm the last one to respond to.  It's getting fairly annoying.

Reflecting the true read/unread status has been an issue for this forum software/architecture that's for sure.  Up to now we have had almost the opposite problem with unread posts being marked as read. SMILEYI have heard that if you "mark as read" then logout and back in, it will all magically work.  Having to logout to save your read settings though seems a bit silly though.  Hopefully the forum devs have some thoughts about how to address this and are working on a fix.

It's not working because the forums are not updating. When I log in it says my last login was on 9/13. It stopped updating then. I'm in and out several times a day but the forums see my last visit as on the 13th. This needs fixing.

Overall, I consider the Sony forums the most difficult to navigate, least responsive and generally the poorest coded of any forums I have ever used. Endless problems, repeated "fixes" leading to more problems followed by more fixes. Rinse and repeat.

Good catch, Looker.  I'm sure this will expedite the process of fixing the problem on Monday.

Glad to hear it isn't just me then - this is absolutely driving me nuts trying to figure out what I've actually read and what I haven't.

TYVM.  I was looking while under individual boards (Mistmoore, Monk, etc) but guess that functionality isnt there yet.  But this is still very sweet.

Put up a post about this in the stickied issues thread.  I hope someone finds a fix to this soon.  It's getting more annoying by the day.

A bug got introduced where it doesn't update some database data when your session expires.  It's already fixed and being QA'd.  A temporary workaround would be to explicitly click logout rather than wait for your session to expire.  But that has a side effect of making you log in when you come back.  So pick your poison until we can get the fix out there.

/agree.. I am using IE 6.0 and same thing is happening to me. It seems that it sees me as last logging in on 9/13/2007 and that never updates, reguardless of how many times I log out and in. Must be a database problem.

Removed since it was moved here from another thread and no longer makes any sense out of context.
