    Old Thread Showing Up as having New Posts

    "What's Your Rev Limit" thread is showing up as having a new post but the last post was in 2015 by lowkey. Also I had private message indication under notifications but it disappeared when I refreshed the page before ever looking at the message. There was a new message in my inbox when I went to notifications and looked.

    When polls get a new response it will show up as having a new response.
    There's also a possibility that there was a spam/bot message and the mods deleted it. That would explain why it disappeared.

    I've noticed that if someone "votes" in a poll but doesn't post any comments, the most recent post shows up as a new post. You might expect an "empty" post which would indicate the most recent voter, but that is not the case. HTH -- Doug

    PS - If you haven't voted (and it might not show with your new "stage name"), give it a try: vote but don't post! ...

    When I first get on the Forum, I cannot open "Notifications" (including "Likes Received") but after I have opened a couple of threads, it works OK? Obviously, "All is not right in Paradise"! .

    You guys hit it. I just voted in the Rev Limit poll and it pushed it to the top as though there was a new post. Thanks for the explanation. It still does not explain why my PM notification disappeared without me going to my messages.

    Me too.

    I've given up on expecting the owners of the site to actually fix the issues though. It seems to be maintained by ghosts and goblins.

    I dunno, ghosts and goblins are more engaging with their customers.

    Unsure of what could have done that. Who was the message from?

    Can you go into the PM inbox and go to the last page.
    Do you see any PMs that are unread at the bottom?
    If so, can you grab me a screenshot?

    Here is a screen shot of my whole inbox. I don't believe that any are "unread".

    Yes, everything is fine with my account and I am getting all of my PMs. The only thing that happened was that the notification of a new PM disappeared without me going to my inbox.

    If you can't figure it out it is no big deal.

    I keep getting older random posts that show up at the top of my list for no reason still and this morning it crashed altogether. It’s back up again but I don’t remember it acting this wacky. It’s been getting progressively worse. I’m guessing that someone is troubleshooting things and I have been living with the glitches so as not to whine and muddy the waters. I figure that the admin is aware of whatever is going on and doing what they can. I’ve never had it crash in the middle of going to the next page on a post before this morning.

    Example of a post showing up as new? It's not the votes in a poll aspect that was figured out?

    You can go to an old thread that has a poll attached to it. Vote in the poll and it will move to the top of the site as though you posted something new. Even though it is confusing it sort of makes sense to move the thread to the top since in reality it did change due to the change in the poll.

    When a new poll vote is made, the site treats this as a new post in the thread as its adding a 'response' of sorts. That is how the software is set to operate.
