19 Pages of new threads?

When I get on RF I always hit "Since Last Visit". Well for the past week I'd say, it shows 19 pages of new threads instead of the normal couple of pages of new threads. Anybody else experiencing this?

I spoke with Zach about issues I was having with my control panel, similar to the Since Last Visit issues

He said a setting was changed a while back that may be causing this. He mentioned it to Rick, so I guess they're looking into it

It should say "Unread threads from last visit" or something to that effect on like the second page. Just old threads. It divides them on mine.

This is what it says on mine.

The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts.

Im mixed one it. I like it because I have lost my recent threads and I dont like it because it seems more cluttered. Lets give it a week or two and see what we think.

It shows the last 10 days worth of threads that contain posts you have not read.

Maybe instead of the last 10 days lets go 3 or 5 days. 10 days is kind of overdoing it if you ask me.

If you go to the "forums" page and scroll down you'll see a button that says "mark forums as read" or something like that. If you click it, it'll make all the pages go away and show 0 new posts for you.

Good advice, when I have read all threads I always do that. Makes it easy.

I kind of like it... it's nice when you're at work (like I am right now... lol) and you get doing something else away from the computer or log out then it doesn't lose all the the new stuff.

The difference between the new and old way is the tail end of the search.

In the past after 15 minutes if you logged out new posts would disapear, that doesnt happen now. That was a big complaint before and has been for a while, i actually didnt know the resolution to that other than to extending session times, but that makes the online members look inflated and 'fake' if you will.

The current way line breaks from the new posts and shows posts in threads not read that are 5 days old.

Again, the only difference is after new posts theres a line break.


With the quick links drop down you can mark forums read or use the mark forums read on the main page.

Can you shorten the time from 5 days to like 24 hours? Or at least something normal?

I agree with Tyler 24 hours would be nice, because I'm not going to remember to "mark forums as read" every time

This is incredibly annoying. When I click on the "Since last vist" it should show posts that were made since my last visit like it used to, not 500 posts from days ago.
