Mark as Read: All vs Selected


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    One topic visible.
    Select topic > Mark as Read > Selected: Happens immediately.


    One topic visible (or any number, the result's the same).
    Mark as Read > All: Takes about 5 seconds to return with no feedback that anything's happening.

    @PJH The stupid thing is, they have loading animations already built in to the site (that blue progress bar at the very top, and the blue spinner in the corner)

    @RaceProUK The stupider thing is that All presumably loops through every thread in the forum when you have a list of unread threads right there.

    That would be a terrible idea though. Because then people with a lot of unread would complain that "All" was a lie.

    Yeah, for awhile I thought it was a schlemiel-the-painter thing because it appeared to be taking longer each time.

    Now I think it's just fucking ridiculously slow, and there's no spinners or progress bars on anything on this shitty forum.



  • Strangely it doesn't show up as an option when there are no threads visible. But I worry that if another thread becomes unread and isn' on the list when you select to clear all, it might do that to the thread you hadn't seen to decide about yet.
