Did you know? It’s easy to mark forums as read

This is the first in a monthly column of posts that explain how to use the features of our website.

The forums are the best place to meet community members who aren’t players on your ship. But it can also be a little overwhelming at times, considering all the activity that gets posted there on a daily basis. In a future column, we’ll show you the simplest way to see all the newest content on the forums in one place, but today, let’s talk about how you can clear out content that you don’t need to see.

Open the forums main page by going here:

You’ll notice that some forums have indicators lit up, showing that they have new posts. You can see those in the image below, for example, in the “StarBase 118 Ships & Installations” category.

If you don’t need to see a particular forum’s new posts, like those in a ship that you’re not a participant of, simply click the lit indicator to mark all posts in that forum read.

This will help you cut down on the number of unread posts, hopefully making the overall forum experience a little easier.
