Why must I mark forums read every time I leave the forum? Before the pointless v2 upgrade (the color scheme is much the same, and pHpBB3 does not have any relevance for me), all forums were marked read at the end of the session, automatically. And I looked in the User CP and there isn't any setting for this.

Because that was a bug in phpBB2, not a feature. It annoyed most people. If you accidentally closed all your browser windows it would mark all topics read because the session ended. In phpBB3 it doesn't do this, so you have to click Mark All Topics Read to get rid of them all, or, of course, read them.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I only used phpBB2 before, and I got used to that "feature" (and I tended to consider that it was my fault if I closed the browser windows).

It could help a little if it was at the top of the forum instead of bottom?
