phpBB forum "User Control Panel - Overview - Manage subscriptions - Mark" shows all topics unchecked (not selected). When I select them all in page 1 of 2, go to page 2 of 2 and select them all also there, and then return to page 1 and then to page 2, they all show unmarked. So, such selections do not stick
Below is a list of forums and topics you are subscribed to. You will be notified of new posts in either. To unsubscribe mark the forum or topic and then press the Unwatch marked button.
The way I see it; selecting/marking them does nothing but mark them as selected for an action.Those markings are not remembered when moving to the next page, so an action which has to be performed, should be performed before moving on to the next page.
In this case, selecting a couple and then using the Unsubscribe button will unsubscribe you from the selected topics.
There is probably also a Mark All checkbox. That only works for the current page and is not remembered on the next page, and that behaviour is the safest way: only the selected items will be affected: just imagine what would happen if a mistaken select all would propagate over all the pages and then the unsubscribe (or delete) action performed.
So, the behaviour is correct: first select the items (for 1 page only) and then perform the action on the selected items (visible on that page).
I can't remember whether there's a message box stating this or that action will be performed on x items: confirm or not. if not that could be an extra protection against unwanted actions.
: no message - so pressing the button will execute the action immediately.
