Is there a way to mark the messages that I have read as "Read"?

I mean, in this forum???​​​​​​​
Windows / Firefox 121.0

Hi,

If you have an unread message, your thread title will appear in bold in "My saved discussions" and once you have seen it, the title will be back to normal meaning that you have seen all messages.

However, no one will be notified that you have read the message. To let them know, you can vote (without knowing that it's you) or reply to the message in question, which is better.

That is fine for MY messages. The problem is that I cannot tell if I have already read a message that was posted by somebody else.

In most forums, after I read a message written by somebody else, the message title changed from bold to normal.

You can save threads you want to follow by clicking the 3 dots > Save. Those threads will appear in your saved discussions, and in bold when a new message has been posted. Alternatively, you can refer to the date of the last reply in a particular thread.

Okay, but when I open CCM, all of the message titles appear in bold, even those that I have read and that have not received any replies since I read them.

To find messages that I've not yet read, I have to go through all of the message titles. It would nice if the messages that I have already read and that nobody has since replied to were displayed with a normal font.

If I have already read a message and then it gets later replies, that message title should also appear in bold.

Just sayin'...

Thanks for your suggestion, but from what I know, the dev team doesn't plan to make changes to the interface for now. Titles are always in bold on the forums' homepage, it's the interface design. However, there's something like you suggested on the "Saved" section. Titles for seen threads appear with a different color there, but other than "Saved", titles don't change.
