I am getting a similar problem again - a thread that had some posts split into a new thread is now showing with unread posts even though people have posted after the thread was split.
Interestingly, it seems to have started after a member edited his post - any idea what might be going on? )I have visited and revisited the thread a number of times now - I have even read the thread from start to finish…).
I’m getting this problem too. After splitting posts from a topic, the topic remains “unread” (the title is shown as grey on my homepage). This is despite me reading down to the bottom of the topic. Example:
Not sure if there’s a separate thread about it, but can you also look at topics going to the top of latest when the last post has been moved or deleted please Jeff? I’m not sure that a notice about a moved or delete post should count as an actual post (most users will not be interested in being alerted to such notices other than by visiting the threads themselves).
User A replied to the topic and then replied again pointing out a typo in his previous post
Admin replies pointing out that posts can be edited
User A fixes original reply and deletes the second one (it is now marked as “will be deleted within 24 hours”)
Admin also deletes his post
In my case that is not enough of an explanation. Firstly because I have previously definitely read all posts before they were deleted, so it should be known that I read them. Secondly because the post at the bottom (which is deleted) is currently my own, so it is by definition read by me.
In any case: wouldn’t it be a solution to just assume that deleted posts have been read (instead of assuming that they have not been read, as it is now)?
