[suggestion] (one more) Tag all the posts on the “posts since last visit” as “read”

Page  
1

I imagine most people will not want to read every single post, they will scan the titles and open just the ones that matter to them or that they think they can help. In less than 12 hours I get over a page of “unread posts” and we are still “early” in the game.

It would be great if we had a button somewhere on the page where you say “I am done with these!”. Maybe is not worth … I am just trying to figure out a way to make the page help me keep up with threads that may be interesting to me.

That sounds like a good idea. Especially as most of us will not know all topics :-))
That would make scanning of new posts faster.

I believe the global RSS feed (at least when I last used it) would intimate me of only new threads

For the existing threads that you are interested in, you could subscribe to them and get notified via mail for updates

Does this serve your purpose ?

In my email client this is named “ignore thread”. I never use it though. I prefer to mark everything as read, but makes sense. However, this leads to some complexity that I don’t know if the designers will like, because there are virtually dozens of ways in which threads could be sorted and/or highlighted for quickly scanning what you are interested into.

Not really…. It is not just about the threads you subscribed already.. It is also about the “new” threads that you may be interested on.

I agree. I’ve also had the desire to use a capability like this.

Voted!

I miss this feature, specially after these days away from computers and with a lot of e-mails, feeds and topics to read. Sometimes I prefer to do a “reset” in some stuff, then start following everything again from that point :-)

We actually have this feature, but it’s not advertised. We will add the link in a relevant place.

If you click:

http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/mark_all_read/

-it will do just that :)

Button added to the search pages now, like the “Posts since last visit” list. Down to the right, big and green.

It marks all the posts on all pages as read? Not only the posts on the respective page.

And it also does mark the threads as read which went active after loading the current page?
