"New Posts"
« on: January 11, 2010, 08:24:57 AM »
This seems to be an issue I am having no matter be it at work or at home, not sure if it is something wider spread or not.

When there is a new post in a thread I like to use the "New" button link to take me to the first unread post of the thread so I can get caught up.  The issue occurs in two different ways.

In a thread I have read before having a number of new posts the link "New" will take me to the new posts, but not to the first unread post, but rather some post randomly in the middle.  So I have to then scroll up or go to the previous page to find the first post I had not read yet.

The other way it screws up is actually with new threads themselves.  If there are multiple posts to the thread I still click "New" and it doesn't take me to the first unread post (which would be the original post) but rather to a post closer to the end.

Not sure if it is an issue that is wide spread or not.  I mean, who knows, it could be linked to me using the "mark as read" option now and then, but I only use that when there are unread posts that remain I have no interest in reading in a particular area of the forums.

I suspect it may be just whatever it is I am doing, but still thought I'd mention it.

I had the same problem yesterday.  But only a couple times.  Weird.

Yeah it doesn't happen all the time, just occasionally.  Not a huge issue, just leaves you wondering.

I have to admit that I have never really noticed.  I will have to keep an eye on this and see whats going on.

Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP.
