So it looks like in the last few minutes, the @system user locked a bunch of old topics (270 to be exact). Every time a topic is locked, merged, split etc… that action of locking or merging or splitting because an “item” in the thread causing the unread status to turn on.
Is that a setting I can turn off locally for my user, or something you can do globally for the forum.
I’ve discussed this with @RyanAtSense before about the nuisance then when a thread is split and merged, all of the previously read messages from Thread A that get merged into Thread B become unread.
I don’t want to turn off the auto tracking of topics I’ve read, but now that auto lock outs are being turned on, it means every couple day a bunch of 8 month old threads are going to become marked with unread topic. So basically @system is becoming the thread zombie where as I assume these auto locks was trying to stop the recent thread necromancy.
