Suddenly unread topics / maintenance...

I ran a couple of batch jobs to close out way old support topics created before we had auto close, and also archived (= freeze against future modification) some topics from 2014. The latter had the unfortunate side effect of marking those topics “unread” again, including things like welcome messages from the forum itself… :frowning: :scream:

I won’t be doing that again, obviously.

In the meantime, the Unread -> Dismiss... path may be useful for those of you who were all read up before now… Sorry about that.

Hasn’t happened to me…

Nor me.

Awesome. Then most people are probably good. :thumbsup:

Happened to me, but only in the Unread section, which I never use ;). I’m always up to date, so the Latest section with the unread markings is what I use. And there, nothing old popped up after your close/freeze. So I could easily use the Unread -> Dismiss to clean up.
