I just logged into the forum on my tablet. I saw the whole page was full of blue links (as I had never visited on this device).

I then signed in, and ... HOLY SHIT. All purple. No red arrows.

This is the ONE gripe that I always had with HBO, is I always tried to use it on the same device so that I was sure I wasn't re-reading posts.

I'm seriously amazed that these "cookies" are server-side and shared across devices

EDIT: I'm not imagining this, am I?? Is this really what I described above?

You're not imagining it. I've also noticed the state of the red arrows sticks across devices, as long as I log in.

While I've seen "new post" markers across devices before, I'm more surprised at the purple links :)

It might not be that amazing to others, but I don't really use forums outside of HBO/DBO because I don't like the way they work. Maybe I'm just easily excited.

I went to the frontpage with my mobile phone and I noticed the page automatically adjusts the page to the screen resolution. It hyped me for the frontpage. Haha.

    That's a really good thing. I didn't notice till now though. I've written a number of forum systems and usually track reads in the DB so that no matter what machine you're on you will know which is unread, etc.
