Activity Stream: Still too hard to click on Unread circle

It's still too hard to click on the unread content circle in an activity stream without clicking on the author avatar or the topic title. On an iPad it's a 50/50 success rate.

Also, shouldn't the title take you to the last unread post (or last post if none unread) anyway like it does from all the other links on the forum? For example, clicking a title on a thread on the forum index takes you to the last unread. If activity stream followed that convention then it wouldn't be a problem that the unread circle was difficult to click.

I agree it should be easier.

No, that would be annoying. Not every topic is something someone cares to read in entirety. And some people don't log on much and are brought to the middle when they expected to go to where they clicked... the post that was just made. That's the action that bumped it, and in "Content items, comments, and reviews" each post is listed individually, so clicking the title should take you there, as it does.

It would really only benefit users that read every post, and only certain posts, where they are following a particular conversation. So it doesn't make sense to do that globally. But I'm sure you could code it to do that.

That's what the dot is for and yes I agree, a lot of people don't know what it is and it's hard to click.

What links? In the forum the title goes to the start and the dot is still unread.

On the board index at https://community.invisionpower.co

If you look at the last topic info on the right the link is a "do=getNewComment" type so it goes to the last unread. On the sub-forum "Product Feedback" this is different and goes to the first topic. Then in other places and streams topic titles goto the last post, clicking on the time like "29 minutes ago" also takes you to the last unread. It's all over the place.

Anyway, this is completely off track. What remains is the circle is too hard to click on streams. On the forum view and the old View New Content view it had a decent amount of padding. :)
