So I've noticed this a few times recently.  It doesn't happen all the time but a few times I thought there were multiple threads with unread posts but after reading one the others were gone.  I have been paying more attention and noticed when I click on one thread to take me to the first unread post, it can mark other threads in the same subforum as read.  I have not noticed this happening if I just click to the last page or click on the title, only if I use the "first unread post" button.  

 

I am using Opera on a desktop, but I think it has happened on my phone (Android OS, using the built in Chrome browser).

Very odd, can you let me know if it happens elsewhere/other browsers? All other information would help too e.g. page number(and method of pagination), forum etc especially as I've never encountered or heard of the issue before.

It just happened again in NRBA.  I clicked first unread post on the "Blast Weapons Revealed" thread (which was on page 4) and when I went from the thread back into the subforum, the Black Templars fan video thread had been marked as read when there was one unread post (on page one).  I'll browse for a bit on my phone to see if I can confirm it happens there as well.

I've been having the opposite problem, threads that I have looked at before (several HH tactica threads) and I've seen someone has posted recently but instead of taking me to the last post I'm taken to the very first post. Examples are the Sons of Horus, Ultramarines and Solar Auxilia tactica.

I've had the occasional "first post" rather than "newest" this seems to be on topics I've not read for a while, unfortunately it is irregular and rare such that I've not had opportunity to find out more.

 

Do you use the "mark forum as read" feature at all? The issues may be related in how the latest read post is stored, so anything about use of latest posts and topics etc could be useful information :tu:

I do occasionally mark sub forums as read. I haven't had it happen on my phone yet today, but it wasn't happening all the time on my browser.

I have noticed what No Foes Remain mentioned, but it happens mostly to threads I know have been moved or merged so I thought it was a side effect of that. I never thought about it beyond that.

That is a possible cause, if you were reading the "merged from" topic then it might not correlate that read post to the "merged to" topic if you hadn't read that yet. Or it could be that you have read the other topic and the problem is a mix up in which to use somewhere. Topics aren't merged with great frequency though so I'm not sure how likely this is, but it gives us something to keep an eye on. Similar features like topics being moved are also worth keeping tabs on too just in case that's related etc.

This did just happen on my Android phone (using its default browser). I clicked to go to the last post of the Space Marine Details thread in NRBA and it marked the last post in the Overwatch Overhaul thread as read. I believe only post 59 was unread at the time.

This is the first time I've noticed it happen since posting this thread, which maybe shows how infrequent it is.

Thanks, yes it happens rarely so it's pain trying to figure out why. I expect we'll get the upgrade sooner which should hopefully resolve it also :P
