Would anyone else be interested in signing up to a feature whereas you are automatically watching every new topic in one particular forum?

I'm a keen reader of a couple of forums in particular, and would like to watch all the new stuff in them.

Want to gauge interest before I approach freitasm.

I was thinking about it last weekend. The worst part is creating new icons for it. Ask @redjungle ;)

Or how about an option to allow you to *only* manually "reset read flags" rather than the current functionality which resets your read flags automatically after you visit GZ.

I've asked for this a few times now as I like to trawl through all new posts, but don't always want to do so on each visit. Sometimes I just want to come on here to check one particular thing out, but am forced to either spend time to read all new posts, or lose all my unread flags. It gets even worse when I visit GZ from multiple devices as the reset flags don't always sync up.

I figure if I ask for this enough times then one day it may be implemented. It could be a possible alternative for the OPs suggestion?

I don't remember a request for manual only reset. Will have to think about it.

Got a couple of buttons from Phil, so I guess I now have to get out of my recliner seat and do some work...

I am exhausted... Already changed the database, added a couple of indexes and stored procedures.

Might have to take a break now until next week, otherwise might fry the keyboard...

How is that now?

I will actually change the code to add a new Auto Unwatch Forum on the same way I did the Auto Watch flip on/off...

Thanks Phil for the buttons!
