@JPB,
I turned that off.

Yesterday, I logged in and out and the new would hang in til I'd looked at the thread.

@ehBeth,
I kinda like keeping the new on top, read after now (says she who once adjusted to a change doesn't want to change back). Then when I leave/return I can just scroll through everything that's new.

i believe that's how the old (2002-08) software worked.
new posts stopped being new once you logged out, whether you viewed them or not...

@Region Philbis,
It is, and it's the way it is intended to work here at present too to answer ehBeth's question.

But it's not always consistently so (for technical reasons I'm too tired to explain coherently), and we are also toying with the idea of permanent read tracking (upside is that it's session independent, downside is that they'd build up quite a bit and may need mechanisms to mark them read without reading them then).

@Robert Gentel,
How does it work if one never logs out? Or, does the "remember me" button effectively log you out after a certain time?

@Robert Gentel,
The inconsistency might have been reinforced by the effect of the different servers/browsers/isps etc I use in different locations.

I definitely like being able to set things in chronological order. Thanks for that.

The button doesn't but inactive sessions are removed. What "remember me" does is log you back in when that happens, it doesn't prevent you from being logged out (otherwise you'd always appear online etc).

It's also on our end, this is being treated as volatile data stored in RAM and not the hard drive (for any geeks who care we are doing read tracking on memcache, not the database to better handle load and to provide better performance) right now and unlike the rest of the database data if we do things like restart the server, or memcache, it will also reset. We've been doing a lot more of that than usual as we tweak that to real-world use.

Thanks for fixing the all threads vs filter option. It's nice not having to remember to turn off the filter every few hours.

Region, with the old software, if you logged out, and back in, there were no posts at all when you came back. Remember the joy when we got "At a Glance"?

@dlowan,
Should your recent obsession with plague be suggesting something about the island continent you prefer not to mention directly?
