Easier Ways to Mark Forums Read

Recent changes to the forums mean that the user must first click "Forum Tools" and then navigate to the upper left of a new page to find "Mark This Forum Read". This is slower and more awkward than the previous drop-down list of forum tools, which was itself a bit clumsy.

Please consider the following changes:
  • Move the link to "Mark This Forum Read" to the left of "Forum Tools" on each forum page itself. There is no need to go to another page.

  • On the Winamp forums home page, add a new direct link to "Mark All Winamp Forums Read". It could be placed just to the left of "Search this Forum".

  • Also on the Winamp forums home page, make the Winamp icons beside each forum name click-able, so that individual forums can be marked read from forums home. As it is now, an icon turns gray after its forum is marked read elsewhere but the icons themselves are "read-only". They could be made active.

These shortcuts would be very convenient and would follow the common practice in many other forums.
