Default Threads incorrectly being marked as read.

I usually come to the site from a bookmark to the 8100 forum. I have an account and am logged in.

For the past day or two when I go up to the BBF home screen (after reading 8100) to check out some of the other forums (General, Aftermarket Software), any forum I enter shows all threads as being read. The timestamps on the latest posts are definitely newer than the last time I viewed the particular forum. This didn't used to happen.

Also, can you guys make the "jump to new post" icon bigger? It's tiny in these forums. Definitely the smallest of any vBulletin forums I've seen.

I believe the date used to mark threads as unread is the date you last logged into BlackBerryForums, not the date you last read the particular forum containing the thread.

I've seen this happen if you let the page sit idle for too long. Then when you click to the next page it's as if you logged out and logged back in and shows everything read since you went inactive. I've also noticed that if you log on to the wap site with your BB while logged on on your PC it marks everything as read too.
