Last night I had 51 pages of unread forum threads in my Subscriptions. (I know, I know ... I'm a bit behind in my reading.)

The dates of them were evenly spaced out between Sept. 13 going back to Aug. 16.

I fell asleep checking BGG on my phone last night.

When I woke up, I had 9 forum threads in my Subscriptions area, all dated today.

???

This definitely helps me to get caught up, but not in the way that I'd prefer to do so.

Did this happen to anyone else?

If not, does anyone have a theory as to how I could sleepily and accidentally click on something which would have this effect? I'm assuming that I didn't click on "Mark as Read" one at a time several hundred times.

I'd like to know how I can accidentally do that, so I can avoid doing it again.

Oh, never mind.

I just saw that link that says "Mark All as Read" under the "Forums" heading.

Mystery solved.

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

Note also that there's a Viewed setting for subscriptions, so you can recover them. I've never used the feature so I can't say how useful it will be. In any case, you'll get the message:

Seeing your viewed items requires site support at the $25 level.
Click here to support the site.
Alternatively, if you buy Adblock with geekgold, you will also gain access to this feature.


If you really want to see what you marked read, a little GG seems cheap.

When I accidentally delete something (without having access to the "viewed" button), I click on Manage Subscriptions and go down the list that way. The unread posts will still be highlighted for you, although you have to click on each subscription separately. Granted, I only have about a dozen threads active at any given time so this will be more painful for you, but at least it's a start.

Don't feel bad. We all have gotten bit by the Mark All as Read "feature." The only good thing is that once bitten you'll remember.

Also, if you wait long enough, the subscriptions will expire automatically. (Was it 30 days or three weeks or something?)

My primary surprise, now that I've seen it (and used it) is that it's taken me this long to mistakenly click on it.

Yes, 30 days. It's not unusual for me to be fighting the calendar, trying to keep ahead of it.
