    Can we please please have automatic "mark as read" instead of the silly little pop up? Or at least as an option? It's so fidgety as it is, even more so on mobile devices where you need to go through 3 clicks (taps?) to make forum as read. Talk about usability nightmare. Pretty please @MLyons?

    I’m talking about on the menu with the watched forums, new posts, etc. I’ll take a screenshot in the morning and upload as currently my home button is broken on my phone.

    I've put some screenshots on imgurrrrrr.
    It's the "mark as read" on the top corner, which gives the popup.
    An option to skip the popup and just mark the current whatever is being viewed as read would be awesomesauce.

    Especially on the mobile version, as the mark as read sits behind a "..." button (which I can't screenshot because all you'd see is the AssistiveTouch menu).

    Are you on iPhone? If so screenshots take away that menu. I've had a broken home button for close to 2 years. Currently having some issues at the office but once resolved I'll look into this.

    I've added the screenshots into the same album linked in my previous post.
    Here it is again :)

    Thanks. It doesn't seem like something we would do as it can ruin the browsing experience if done accidentally. I'll ask and see what the others think.
