marking entries as "is read", a proposal (Technics)

Hello Milo

Not that it is a killer feature but it is IMHO very helpful when you visit a forum with different devices and/or browsers.


I'm not sure, how many different devices and/or browsers the normal users are using to visit the forum but I believe it is (in most cases) only one.

Let's have a look at my situation. PC at work, PC at home, notebook, smart phone and every when and then the tablet. That are regulary four and with the seldom used tablet five devices. I would expect a "normal user" to use two or three devices.

Ich würde nicht darauf verzichten wollen.

Well, if I search with e.g. google and visit a page, this page is marked as visited. If I repeat this search on another device, this page is - of course - not marked as visited. Thats a normal behaviour...

Yes it is the normal behaviour. If the function works correct (until now it doesn't), it is the better behaviour. Especially for those users, who visit a forum with more than one device/browser. All other users (those with only one browser on one device) are not bothered at all.

Tschö, Auge
