Default Forum keeps marking unread stuff as read

I haven't been around as much, as I haven't been as busy crunching numbers, but every time I come back it seems everything has been marked as read except for very recent stuff. This makes it difficult to pick back up on threads I've been participating in.

I think the software only looks back one week.

Visit once per week.

We will try increasing the amount of time that the read data is kept. We are worried that it will significantly affect the database size so we will increase it slowly.

I got presented with a bunch of old "unread"s that were in fact read.

The same here. If it is a one-time occurrence that is fine. Otherwise very annoying

Same here, like the last two posters. Going now through ~140 threads (almost all already read) that popped up, and let's hope this is a single time task.

Once you read all of the new stuff from today you can mark all the forum read (there is a tool for that in the secret menu.)

Somehow that does not apply to me. At least all the things I have checked that have been read before are now still marked as such.

I thought it was related to user activity, but it seems it's purely based on date, looking at the screenshot Mike posted
