Please move the Mark Forums Read link

Postby TundraPuppy » June 10th, 2016, 10:31 pm

Please. For the love of everything holy, move this link from underneath the pulldown menu you click to choose stuff when you're on the main page. This is scary design. This is like putting the "Start Thermonuclear War" button right next to the "Select your coffee type" button.

Don't encourage Thermonuclear War. Just move the link somewhere that inadvertent clicks (or thumbpresses on a mobile device) won't nuke your unread posts by accident.

I agree. I have so often cleared my unread posts inadvertently, especially when using my phone. Please move it.

True, I just did this now. Right when i saw this thread. I was going to click search for unread posts.

That plan went out the window now.

Even though it is completely user error when you mark all read, it really shouldn't replace "first unread post" when not on a topic but in a sub forum.
I support moving it to another location.
The above statements are strictly my opinion, and should not be taken as fact, even if I believe them to be true.

We'll investigate this possibility, but I can't promise that this will be a priority. Sorry.
