Default Is there a way to keep threads I havent clicked from showing read?

I miss posts and updates all the time and I re-read posts Ive already read. Is there a way to keep threads that have new posts in them from showing read when I havent clicked on them? I cant seem to find it in the faqs or usercp page?

Is it something to do with using two clients? Or maybe a mobile setting? Seems to read everything when I swap between the two?

I stayed off my phone for like an hour this am, desktop seemed to work as expected, then I go on my phone and boom all threads show read?

Thread read status is controlled by the sites cookie file. if you are in a thread and are idle and the session times out, it will automatically mark all posts in the thread you are in as "read" To avoid this, avoid letting your sessions time out.

What the threshold for a timeout?

Ok two more questions, if you will... I assume since I use different cookies on another device it will mark everything thing read when I switch devices?

And is there anyway we can change the site so its more like traditional forums where this doesn't happen? Sites like rccrawler, traxxas, etc come to mind. I mean you dont have to reengineer the whole site, but it seems server side tracking of this is a pretty standard feature thats been along a long long time.

FYI, not only in that thread but EVERY thread will show as read. Meaning you can't go to "last viewed post". No matter where you are on the site it does this if you're "idle" too long. Writing a long post or PM, bang you're timed out. I personally hate this because I use the "view last read post" feature ALL the time. I don't want to go the last post and then have to go back in a thread to find where I previously stopped reading or people posted since I last logged in.
