Unread filter problem with migrated threads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Something I've reported before: my My Threads page has a lot of threads that the Unread filter doesn't filter.  They were threads migrated from the old forum site.  I've read them all, once, but the dbase doesn't know it anymore.  I've been steadily clipping away at them.  Initially by design, now usually by accident.  I try to pick a thread that stands out from the blob because of a particularly mangled thread title.  When I click on such a thread by accident, I have to find a new one. 

    My odds of ever actually getting to the end of that list are small.  The last migration dumped another big wad of threads like that in My Threads.  Right now, with the Unread filter turned on, I've got 2,665 threads to click on to get them filtered.

    Given the rate at which I click a thread by accident, it's going to take at least 5 years to work down that list.  It will take you 5 minutes to solve my problem with a simple update query.

    Please fix my problem.  I think I deserve the special treatment.

  • Not that easy to get a one off query run ;)

    I'll look into allowing "Mark All Read" from My Threads view for the bigger "UI" release. It should actually be quite easy/doable.
