    Hey.. when I sit idle on the board, it marks all my forums as read, even if I havent been through them yet.

    Any way to fix this so it doesnt mark them read unless i click on them?

    The board places a cookie on your machine for saving your login and password and for what posts you've read. After idle for 15 minutes the board will automatically log you out and reset posts to read. Of course you don't notice being logged out because when you hit refresh your cookie automatically logs you back in.

    This timeout can be increased but only globally and it would cause more problems than fix!
