"No unread posts" mystery/bug?
« on: May 01, 2006, 17:24:55 »


Lately, more than not.

I'll click on "show unread post since last visit"

It will either show very few or no posts.  Now, I know there
are a lot of threads I haven't read and I DIDNT click on the
mark threads as read button.

But, for some reason, the computer/server, um.. god? thinks I have.

Anyone else experiencing this, where all the theads are registered as
read and don't show up?
Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Perhaps it's that little-known feature wherein the threads can select not to be read by certain individuals. Apparently some threads were feeling that  they were not being taken seriously, and/or some individuals could not be trusted to reply with anything other than nonsense   ;)

...I heard this from a co-worker's friend's mother, so it must be true.

Clear your cache,
Send subscription to Mike Bobbitt,
Reduce portion of system capabilities dedicated to pr0n downloads,
Sacrifice a chicken (try not to drip blood into the keyboard, it's a ***** to clean out),
Have another tequila,
Reboot.

If that doesn't work, return to step 5 and start here http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php?action=recent

I think the problem may be that the feature is Show unread posts since last visit. If you last visit was an hour ago, there may not be that many new posts to view. Try this link (all unread topics) and see if it helps:

I closed my browser and came back in 10 minutes, didn't have the problem then.
