View Full Version : Posts not being marked read

01-05-2015, 03:57 PM
In the past few days or so, I've noticed that visiting the latest post of a thread with new posts, from either the subscribed threads list in Settings or the New Posts search screen, doesn't always cause the post and thread to be marked read. Sometimes the new post that makes the thread show up in the lists is even one I just made!

This didn't used to happen. I wonder what changed.

Not one of my own posts this time, but currently this (http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?3663-Post-your-West-Eurasia-K8-results&p=63662#post63662) thread is exhibiting that behaviour. Typically it does eventually end up marked read, after hours or maybe a day or so.

... and now this very thread is showing up that way for me, no matter how much I come here to read my own new post. Heh.

The icon does the color change to grey for me, so I see that I have read it, including this thread.

Right - normally a new but read thread doesn't have its title bolded, either, but they seem to be staying bold. They do disappear eventually, though - this thread did after maybe an hour, until things happened in it again.

Previously I've seen them change pretty much instantly after being read.

Hmmm, interesting.

Hi Salkin, are you still having this problem?

It doesn't seem to happen as much. This thread stuck around for a while after I visited it this time too, but updated within maybe 15ish minutes. Not that much of an issue.
