Writing Forums

Writing Forums is a privately-owned, community managed writing environment. We provide an unlimited opportunity for writers and poets of all abilities, to share their work and communicate with other writers and creative artists. We offer an experience that is safe, welcoming and friendly, regardless of your level of participation, knowledge or skill. There are several opportunities for writers to exchange tips, engage in discussions about techniques, and grow in your craft. You can also participate in forum competitions that are exciting and helpful in building your skill level. There's so much more for you to explore!

Mark As 'Read' (1 Viewer)

EDIT: There is one for subforums but not one for threads or the whole forum

On many forums you have 'mark as read' for the whole forum or (if possible) for the separate threads themselves. Once you've gone through the forum/thread and have read, commented or critiqued your personal favourites or what you think you can bring legitimate critique to, it's then difficult to see if a new story/poem has been posted because the thread is still blue. With a 'mark as read', you can remove ALL the blue threads and then you know instantly that something new has been added beyond that point.

It's just handy!

Hey, don't forget we are moving to new forum software in the next couple of months. Please remind me to enlist you as one of our guineapigs. :)

As long as it's not too distant from the current layout or, if it is, you have the option to return it to this format. I like this format. :(

Just in case you haven't found it yet... You can mark the whole forum 'read' by looking at the menu bar on top. Right underneath 'forum' you find 'my forum actions'. Click that and you get the chance to mark the entire forum read.
