Is this an example?

Dunno. I'm not important or rich enough to have an iPad.

However, I am seeing it again in the Entertainment forum. Everything visible is marked as read, but according to the Board Index, there are unread posts there. I'm guessing more spam deletion.

If only there were a way for the moderators and administrators to let the general public know if they had deleted stuff or were blatantly misusing their power...

Picked up some distracting sheep habits during your stay in Kiwiland, eh? ;)

Right, same here. If you mark the Entertainment forum as read, it still shows at least one unread post in there. The only way to defeat it is to go to the forum root and mark EVERYTHING as read.

This may be due to the unapproved posts. When you do a global "mark as read" it doesn't actually mark threads read so much as it resets the last date that everything was read. In a given forum, it marks everything as read that you can see. Since this does not include unapproved posts, that may be the discrepancy.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

It seems like this remains a problem, by the way. Do we need more mods to approve/reject initial posts?
