i really appreciate the help, humor, etc here and maybe a reputation, like, thumbs up etc system so we don't burn PM's or pump post counts with thanks, lols, etc.

If this exists, I think I should have stumbled on it here, or I am blind. The latter is certainly a possibility.

Is there a way to mark all topics on all forums as read. I know that I can click on the mark topics read for the individual sub-forums, but I would like to have a broad and sweeping mark everything read if that's possible.

Again, I might be blind...

Go to the homepage and click "General Forums" at the top of the page.

Then at the bottom right you'll see a button that says: "Mark Forums Read"

You'll need to do this for "Marketplace" as well.

That's odd. I just tried from my test account (GavyMarx) and also "assumed" your permissions and the button is definitely there.

Is anyone else NOT seeing the "Mark Forums Read" button?

I just click the link with the scroll wheel of my mouse


+1 scroll wheel does it.


scroll wheel FTW :thumbup:

I am still Greatly interested in a more normal format for PM's, so they act a bit more like emails.
Basically so I can re-read and delete them faster, without having to confirm deletion, then open the next message. I am back up to 600 messages and would love to have under 100, but don't want to delete a phone number or something else important by doing the mass deletion button/tab.

i set up a couple of pm "file" folders with different names and moved older pm's there,

it is helping for now

Thanks! I've never actually just clicked on General Forums that I am aware of. That explains it! :thumbup:

I'm getting to that age where I'm starting to worry about repeating myself. It would be nice to easily see all of my posts within a certain thread, to see if I've already said something. The advanced search doesn't quite drill down to the level of detail needed for this.

Really liked the old format with the menu and especially the gold and silver charts right at the top.Used this site to constantly check the price of gold and silver. And to go to the gold and silver buy pages.
Now the price charts are buried at the bottom and only reached after eternal scrolling.
Why OH why do simple things have to change to become complicated??
To those that design this stuff...Think about how we use these pages...NOT how easy it is to design it!
Finally...this is constructive criticism...thanks for all you do.

I listed 4) different USA stamp rolls for KSA. I used the "quick Reply" box, they all went to the same title list? :oops:

Don't reply in the thread, make a new topic for each listing.
