    Ok so I've just got to the office and looked into this. Unfortunately the only way seems to be to go into the conversation and click leave conversation at the top right of it.

    And I have just discovered that you can do leave multiple conversations using your method.

    Actually quite simple, Tick the box on the left hand side of a conversation, in the box that opens click select all, on tick any you want to keep then click on leave conversations and that will clear that page. Rinse and repeat on all other pages. Job done.

    I assumed you couldn't do this in bulk due to it being under "moderation actions" but if you can then great. Saves me a bunch of time. Thanks for the help

    Been getting this today when I click the comments icon on an article from the front page:

    [​IMG]

    And on mobile I noticed there isn't a link to comments at all? Is that supposed to be the case? It's a bit of a shame as I do most of my browsing on mobile so not linking through just means I comment less.

    Any article or 2 specifically if it's 2 specifically I know what's happened. If it's all then it's account related. So on mobile you want a link to the forums?

    Seems to be specifically that article and another I can't remember, guess that was something done when it was posted?

    Yeah for mobile it would be nice to have a little icon that links through to the forum comments section like on the desktop site if possible.

    Marvel vs capcom 3 by any chance? (I don't think there is a thread in the forums for it to link to)

    Did you change something recently?
    Text is black on white again (or black on light grey), text is sharp again, scrolling is back to normal.
    (After the update I had dark grey text on grey backgroung, unsharp text while scrolling, lots of very slow scrolling)

    Or is this browser dependent?

    Yh, this was done to make it easier to see different posts and they all sort of blended together when the forum was first released. The other things i have no idea. I don't think anything was changed. You're talking about just the forums right?

    hmmm, I'll look into this Monday. I'm guessing the same happens when you put stuff inside the spoiler tag aswell.

    Is it possible to have the active topics button or whatever it was called back, don’t know how anyone else uses the forum but I just click on new posts and read something of interest in the list, I may not contribute right away for what ever reason, I used to be able to come back to the forum click active topics and scroll through the list and find it, with the new setup because I have read it, the thread no longer shows up in new threads, for an obvious reason ,sure, it’s no longer new :D but that is no go for me, I don’t recall the exact thing I was reading or where it was and therefore the moment passes and I never go back to what I was going to do or add anything to the forum.

    Pure laziness I’m sure but the old way worked for me.

    The problem with new posts as mentioned is that if you have already read one of the new posts but decided you want to revisit it later, the post you are interested in is not longer in the new posts list as it is not new, previously the active topics menu button would show posts on forum to a specific time whether you have read them or not, so you can always find what you were reading earlier.

    How it is at the moment unless I specifically add a thread to a watch list I can't find it again later with remembering what it was called or what forum it was in, no something I am good at and marking as a watched topic is too much of a faff on the phone when I am just taking a sneaky peak.

    As an example, having just put something in this thread, if I now go to new posts, this post doesn't come up as I have already been in it, so finding it again can be a chore (assuming I didn't know what forum it was posted in, in the first place.)
