Help. Really wonky behavior with "new" flag

rworange | | Sep 25, 2011 08:38 AM

Yesterday, a poster added a post to this thread and it was flagged as "new".

When I opened it up, it was all expanded and there was no new post for that poster.

Fair enough ... maybe it got deleted.

However, the "new" flag remained.

Now three other posts have the same thing going on, so I did all the business about clearing cookies. Nope. Still listed as "new".

I added two dummy posts. That got rid of the new flag BUT those records don't show up and the posts are still unexpanded at the same point when posters added comments.

So to sum up

- I am not seeing the new posts that cause the thread to be flagged as "new"

- the "new" flag doesn't go away

- my posts don't show up.

I thought I got deleted on one ... maybe too grouchy sounding ... so I reposted a briefer post that just clarified because the poster was writing about something different that what I was posting about.

That was gone too this morning

Ok, fine. Time to back off as it seems to be making the mods unhappy. BUT other posters have added comments that I am not seeing and the thread is stuck exactly at the point it was yesterday prior to me adding comments.

The only thing I can think is maybe I've reached some sort of limit on posts. Whatever dataset that is holding the 'new' flags reached its limit? While I don't post as much these days, I have posted quite a lot over the years. That is just a guess though.
