Its a cookie problem I think.

If you go into the forum it is saying you have unread posts it should clear

Yeh I have a similar problem and I've pretty much 100% sure it's to due with the cookies. Not a particularly big deal, mind you.

It's definitely to do with cookies. The forum database doesn't keep track of which topics you've viewed, that would be a huge downer on the running speed of things if it had to keep track of all that kind of stuff for everyone, so topic views are definitely cookie based. Guess there's not really any real way to fix it, so you'll just have to remember what you looked at really.

Im pretty sure thats becuase it stores the information about which topics you read in the cookie, and when you change the computer, so does the cookie gta-sa uses does

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.
