I'm proposing a very useful and easy-to-implement app feature:

The "My Forums" landing page would benefit from a **global** "Mark all 'My Forums' threads as read" feature. Here's why...

I have eight saved 'My Forums' which I watch for threads of interest. On average, I might have interest in new content in 50% of the threads in those forums.

But... to clear each **individual** 'My Forum' of uninteresting-to-me topics, after every visit I must (one forum at a time!) "Mark all threads as read". That requires eight two-step processes (select menu feature > mark as read) – a total of 16 actions for my eight forums.

By adding a single un-embedded menu button on the 'My Forums' landing page, a forum member could – after reading any topics of interest in his/her saved forums, just click ONE single button to clear all irrelevant threads across all saved forums.

In my case, this proposed feature would reduce 16 actions to just one, for every time I used the app to search for new topics. Imagine, logging on five times a day would save 82 nuisance clicks ((16 old-method clicks x 5 visits) - 8 new-method clicks).
