I read GZ from various different machines (work laptop, iPad, desktop at home etc). When I jump on to GZ, I like to browse through all the new forum post topics since the last time I visited.
GZ seems to mark all posts read since your last visit, regardless of what you have viewed. It also seems to mark all posts read at random intervals too. If I leave GZ open in my browser while expectantly called away, when I get back all new posts are reset.
I find that this doesn't always work in my favour in the following situations:
- I mainly visit GZ from my work laptop. Sometimes when I visit from my iPad or home desktop, the new forum posts show posts that were new a few visits ago. Sometimes it says I have 10+ pages of new posts to read when I had only visited yesterday and expect on average 3 pages.
- If I get a reply to a topic I am watching, I either have to wait until I have time to read all new posts so I don't miss out one something, or read that one reply and lose my history of new posts.
- If I get called away during my visit to GZ, often the new post count gets reset.
It would be great for the Reset New Posts link to be the only way new posts are reset. Surely others on here experience similar issues? I can't be the only one who uses GZ in this way?
I'm asking for this again as I can see a number of other ideas being raised and implemented, therefore I can only be hopeful...
