Fyi, first post on the android app. Working well so far on a samsung moment.
That is pretty much a technical impossibility... trust me, I've been working with vBulletin for years. ;-)
Unless you have some sort of cookie sync application working where it syncs your cookies between multiple computers.
If the vBulletin forum has database thread marking enabled, then yes, you will be able to browse from wherever and have correct thread counts, but the issue is this is a huge performance hit on the backend database because every time someone reads a new page in a thread, it is doing a INSERT or UPDATE into the database to track the last read timestamp, and when you scale that up to the millions of users on this forum, you are talking about a significant performance hit.
