Ability to set 'Remind me' topic timer has disappeared...?

On our hosted instance, I just tried to set myself a reminder on a topic for tomorrow. I find that I have half a dozen new timer options, but not the one I’ve been using for years…?

Reminders have now been merged into the bookmarks feature, so that all users can benefit from them (not just staff). You can find some more info here:


It seems that I must manually un-bookmark topics whose timers have gone off?

Yes, or you can click the :gear: when creating the bookmark and set it to auto-delete


Just stumbled myself over this problem.

To me it is maximum counter intuitive to place reminders under bookmarks.
If someone wants to set a reminder, he wants to set a reminder, not a bookmark.
If someone wants to set a bookmark, he wants to set a bookmark (like in your browser, i.e. forever, no timely limits), not a reminder.

No doubt that this could be a usefull function for users, but please not under bookmarks.

Can you change that please so that reminders are not shown under bookmarks?


Edit: Reason for my lack of understanding for this change: I’m an admin and I have the option to set a “Topic timer”. I use this to remind me of topics that need attention. To me it is intuitive to have reminders under “Topic timer”.
It is not intuitive to me to have a reminder under Bookmarks.


This will not be changing. If that is unacceptable to you, you may wish to find other free open source software to use.
