Default Answered: 'Mark Forums Read'

I was searching around the forum the other day when I found this button.

Click the image to open in full size.

So I clicked on it, but I couldn't figure out what happened. The folders on the main forum page turned transparent, but when I clicked on Open Mike, none of the specific folders were transparent.

Does anybody know what this does?

The "Mark Forums Read" button does exactly what was discussed above - it makes folders 'transparent' to show that you have read their content. You can do this individually too by double-clicking any folder that says it has new posts. The purpose of this is to help you organize what you have read and what you haven't - in some forums I like to see this because it isn't always easy to remember if I already viewed the content of it previously or if I still haven't read it.

One problem, at least for me, is that sub-forums don't go 'transparent' - instead, they do the opposite and light up showing new posts. This only means that you HAVE seen all the content in those sub-forums, not the opposite. To keep this straight, one just has to remember that sub-forums showing new posts are ones they already read.

You mentioned above that it went back to "normal" when you refreshed the page - that's because any sections that had been posted in since you clicked the "Mark Forums Read" would now light up because they now have new posts and you haven't yet seen their content.

Maybe it makes it look like you read those forums? I'm not quite sure..
But could you get it back to normal?

Hmm... I don't know!
Maybe it is to let you know that they were read?? Try asking a mod!
