Re: Wonder how many have noticed ...
It is described in above threads.
All threads present a "view first unread" button that will bring you to where you left off. That seems to triggered by the time in the upper right corner that says when you last visited. If you just stay on long enough, either crafting a reply or just being idle, that last visited time will renew to the present and you lose your place.
Not only does the First Unread button help get you where you left off in a multiple page thread, but the bolding identifies those threads that have anything posted since you last signed on.
Simply stated, nothing should be marked as read, unless the user actually reads it, regardless of when you last visited.
If I only have a few minutes and sign on to see a dozen threads I would like to catch up on and fail to do so, they will all reset. Therefore, I just avoid signing on without time.
To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
