I find it more and more cumbersome to efficiently visit discourse. Now that more activity starts to arises the amount of new topics and unread posts are not possible to manage efficiently
Let me explain:
I like to be aware of all new posts, regardless of anything.
Many of them I will briefly glance at and discard as “not for me”
(That is related to if a topic has ended / is solved or if the topic is beyond my interests or whatever).
With the way Discourse is currently setup, I have to open each and every new topic and unread post to let Discourse mark it as “read”. Apparently there is a minimum amount of time or handling one needs to do to mark them as read, for else they will pop-up as unread over and over again.
I suppose I should ask for @sam to chime in and relay what makes Discourse mark posts as “read”. Is it time- or specific handling related? And can you tell if a manual “Read/Unread” switch is in the making?
I finally found the topic I made earlier in this issue:
