In the preferences, in “Notifications”, the “Automatically track topics I enter”, by default, is “after 4 minutes”. If I understand correctly, it means that the forum won’t consider a topic as read unless I’ve spent at least 4 minutes reading it.
Why? I don’t think the forum should make assumptions about my reading speed, and anyway, even though I can read English only relatively slowly, I can often decide that a topic doesn’t interest me in less than 4 minutes, or even read it entirely if it’s short. Couldn’t the default just be “immediately”?
