The option to mark forums/sub-forums as read is great, but I don't think I'm alone when I say that maybe it would be helpful if we had the option from other major sections. I try to catch up with unread posts as much as possible, but quite frankly there are some sections that I'm just not interested in... I usually view the new posts via "What's New?" and read up on all the stuff I find useful, then check out other sections to mark forums read. For example, I read pretty much every post under the AAdvantage / Skymiles / US Airways section, but I don't have much interest in JAL / ANA / Air Guanaco / whatever. Same thing for the hotels section. It would be useful (or maybe it's just me) if the overall Airline Programs / Hotel Programs section itself could be marked as read, so that people like me -- that read a few sub-forums but not everything -- could then go back to "What's New?" and concentrate on finding other useful posts outside of those sections. Does that make any sense actually? Maybe I'm just being picky.
