I had over 9,000 unread news, most likely being new here I will never need to read most of them. The only feature that the news commands is missing is perhaps SET READ ALL or something to that effect.
I did "read" all the news but now that it's up to day I can easily navigate all new/unread messages. My OCD was kicking in every time I saw I had unread messages. I did not wanna remove the notice but rather have it up to date.
I searched the forums for this idea and did not find anything, I apologize if this idea was already submitted.
