    Default Unread Posts

    A problem is coming up for me with the forums. A lot of the time, even though I've read all the threads in a sub-forum, when I go back to the main page, the sub-forums will be highlighted as showing unread posts. To clear it I have to go back in and click "mark forums read."

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    Is it a known bug or is it something on my end?

    Can it be fixed?

    Edit: I just tried to click "Mark Forums Read" on the front page of the forum and I got this:

    Your submission could not be processed because a security token was invalid.

    If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
    Eve Online
    Therinda Nax - Sniggwaffe
    Mrenda - PCG Enterprises

    If you want to try out Eve Online, check out this thread, and give the PC Gamer Corp a shout.

    I get this a lot as well. It seems, even if you've read all the posts, you still have to actually view the forum, and all its subforums, for it to mark it as read. So if theres a new post in Eve online General Discussion and I read it then go back to the index, it will still show as having new posts. But if I read it then go to General Discussion, then Eve Online, then Play With PCGamer, then back to the index, it marks it as read properly.

    It's rather annoying.
