This is due to a cookie issue, what it does is it records any new posts since your last visit via cookies stored on your machine. Assuming you visit this site from your school/college whatever, you probably browse from different machines right? If this is the case it's because it can't find the cookies from the original machine you browsed/ it stored them on. Sorry but if my theory is correct there is nothing I can do about this.

Sorry but if my theory is correct there is nothing I can do about this.
But, Taz, I thought you could do everything. :)

Must admit, it does play up though, Taz. On mine, it'll show me all new posts, but as soon as I make a post myself, they all disappear leaving me to find the unread ones. This doesn't always happen. Sometimes, midway through a session, four or five new posts pop up as other people post, and these tend not to disappear at all, even once I've read them.

As I'm in here at roughly the same times everyday, though, it doesn't really bother me. I just go by the dates that are showing on the threads.

Something that does annoy me at times is the clock that gives the times of my posts. For ages it has been an hour out, even though I had clicked on the correct zone in My Account. I figured it would sort itself out once we changed the clocks last weekend, but now I'm 2 hours out. I don't want to mess around with the settings in My Account because it'll mess up my avatar (besides I did try altering the time zone settings once before and nothing seemed to happen)
The clock in my PC is working fine, by the way.

I think the clock thingy is caused by daylight savings time working backwards in the program. My P-T clock shows it is 01:00 GMT yet I'm is Zone 8 where it is actually 3 PM PST so the P-T clock should actually say 23:00 PM GMT. :elfconfused:

So there is a thing that tells you where the new posts are? I didn't know that. I just browse through them all... :orcgin: But then I have loads and loads of time (err, no really, but never mind). :P:

The clock thingie is pretty annoying though. Lemme check if it works now. *posts*

Nope. It's an our later than normal. Probably cos we have just changed the clocks here to wintertime again. And this clock device probably hasn't.nn[Edited on 1/11/2002 by TomBombadillo]

Or, and this is a bit of a revolutionary idea, look at what time and date it is before you log out, then when you come back, only look at threads done AFTER that time.
Blimey, what a good idea! Now why didn't we think of that Plastic? You're so clever.... ;)
