Test New Feature: Mark Forums Unread Automatically

Hey Guys,

We recently changed the read/unread marking behavior on the site. Before, if you idled for too long, or left the site, then the site would automatically mark all the forums as read.

This would be problematic for people who stayed on the site for a while, or tried to coordinate between devices or computers.

We switched to a system where you need to explicitly read a thread to mark it as read. Alternatively, you can "Mark All Read" manually. Obviously, some people were used to the old system.

So, I've added an option in your user control panel:
http://forums.macrumors.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

"Automatically mark forums read"

This lets it behave like it used to.

try it. let me know if there are any problems.
