Restore "Mark All Read" for the entire community

The ability to mark sets of posts as read is currently buried at the Category level.
It would be helpful to have a global Mark All Read for the entire forum.

    I used the global "Mark all read" daily on the old interface. It is sorely missed.

    I suspect that ALL of the SuperUsers did also.  Nice to hear that a non-SU did also.

    I want to state that this is having a direct impact on my ability to provide help.

    I almost missed a follow up question to a question basically only I could answer because I thought I had scanned through several pages of mixed read/not read, and didn’t go far enough back.  And this isn’t the first time this has happened to me.

    Yes I guess I could do workarounds like bookmarking every thread I reply on, but I like to keep my bookmarks down to a small amount that I’m “really interested in”.

    In a way I guess it doesn’t matter that much, because more and more I’m looking at the threads and I don’t even want to look at them because there is basically nothing that any user can help with except the recommending the standard “hammers” like reset this or that, for a problem that probably will be back in short time because the real cause is never fixed.  All of these “connected services” that “half work”.

    Since I have Recent Discussions set to show the categories I'm following, I have taken to opening the threads I don't want to read in new tabs and then quickly closing them, so they're all "read" for the next time I come back to the site. It's effective… but not efficient.  :(

    Someone from Quicken posted elsewhere that Vanilla is working on developing the Mark All As Read functionality, but that it would take some time. (Why they need to develop a feature they had on the previous generation template is beyond me; I'm just reporting what the Quicken folks said about this.)

    We really really need this feature. We used to have it! It was taken away! Please get Vanilla to restore it!
