    It seems like I'm allowed to threadmark any post, on any thread. Is that on purpose?
    Is there a certain post number threshold that allows a user to do this or is it some other accomplishment?

    So that's very interesting xD
    Yep, I can threadmark without even being the op too. Something needs to be looked about lol

    This is indeed an interesting oversight

    At least the orange and the dark mode blend is very nice looking, if all the posts gets threadmarked lmao

    Threadmarks disabled while I take a quick look at permissions

    Update: fixed permissions oversight

    As with many other things, give users a way to disable the large disruptive banner. The threadmarks dropdown at the top of the thread page is nice and a pretty easy way to see all the important details without being intrusive. What measures do you have in place to prevent people from overusing them? Will we be able to report users who overuse them and derail threads?

    Is there any reason as to why the Threadmarks dropdown isn't in the row as all the other buttons? It would fit nicely to the right of the Go to First Unread button.

    Is there away to turn this off? I was fine with people just updating the OP. This is too jarring for me.

    No sorry. The sole purpose of threadmarks is for them so stand out. So they were designed with a garish look in mind.

    That's unfortunate. It stands out way too much. Luckily I found an external way to reduce the amount of clutter. Now it is just an orange line on the side of the post.
