I realize this is kind of a minor gripe in the larger scheme of things, but I do find it really annoying. I’ve tried to tolerate it, but I’m just managing stoicism. ;)
When reading through this forum, which I routinely will do once - three times daily, I use the “New” selector (selecting all categories first) - and then I use the “Unread” selector. Having done that, I am reasonably assured I’ve read all of the new posts and also all updated posts. So far, so good.
Where I am troubled - and (yes, I admit it…) annoyed, is in reviewing the “Latest” posts and the “Top” posts. Those posts will display in a list with some of the posts showing in normal type and others showing in a lighter gray type. I’ve reasoned that the lighter gray posts are supposed to signify what is unread. The problem is that quite a few posts show in normal type, even though I have definitely read them. This I know because I always review the “Latest” and/or “Top” sections last, after having caught up on my reading. If I take the additional step of clicking into a normal type post and then clicking back to “Latest” (or “Top”) then sure enough the post shows in a lighter weight.
As I said, this is relatively minor in the larger scheme of things, but it bugs me nonetheless (the first step to healing is admitting you have a problem, ;) ) - can you please contact Discourse and ask what’s up?
