Threads not being marked Read properly

The last couple of days, I'm noticing that when I go back to Subscribed Threads after reading, they're not being marked as read, so I wind up doing it manually. I'm on Win10, current version of Chrome.

D'oh. Logging out and back in seems to have solved it. Accessing the board from multiple devices over the weekend probably didn't help a lot.

Could have been a worse "first thing in the morning" brain hiccup: Friday evening, on my way home from the emergency room then housing DH (he's home now), I had to stop to feed the car. Finished that process, then put the car in Drive and released the parking brake. Then freaked out because the car was not moving, car trouble being about the last problem we need right now.

Turns out that starting the engine helps a lot.

I don't think this has ever worked well.

Hope things are improving for you, Seanette.

Ruken, the system has never been perfect. Age has not improved it. It more or less works. Sometimes more, sometimes less. We apologize for any inconvenience any of our users may be experiencing.
