Exclamation Forum Setting Change

I changed some setting with the forums. The one most notable is how threads are marked as "read" to the end user. In the past it was done via a cookie, but it was easy to miss new posts with this system.

The new method will log it in the database for each user. While this is a bit more server intensive, it will give you a much better indication of which forums you have or have not read.

As a result of this change you will see many "older" forums that are marked "unread" that you have probably already viewed. Your best option it to log in and look at the threads you know are new and then mark all forums as read (do this by going to the top menu item "quick links" and selecting "mark forums read"). Then all new posts will be displayed properly.

Please let me know if you experience any server performance issues or other problems.
