Marking Topics as Read

Post by xrppzi » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:15 am

When I mark topics as read, I get a popup message that tells me

"Information
The topics for this forum have now been marked read"

This is not only superfluous, but totally annoying! Is it possible to get rid of it?

Yes annoying but it might not be easy to remove

I often see posts asking questions which would be better answered by Submitting a query

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

As the forum software is a 3rd party package, I'm reluctant to make too many modifications as this makes it trickier to upgrade when new releases come out. I'm not ruling this out, but I'm afraid this will have to be low priority for the moment, sorry!
