Why the hell sometimes it's written "0 replies" and if I enter there I see many of them? And why the f$#k do some messages appear with 6 or 7 replies and you get into it: 1 or 2? Edited by - rockslave on 6/16/00 8:40:58 PM

BTW, before posting this, it said ''4 replies'' and there were ''5'' . Could it be that messages from the original poster aren''t counted? Oh, on the old FlipCode board they had a ''receive-mail-if-thread-has-been-updated'' feature. THAT was cool.

Heheh, seeing a feature like that on some of the topics here would be absolute havoc on someone''s email account. I do know we have something similar as was mentioned a few people above me though.

Guys, if you happen to be around or post and notice the number of replies getting screwed up, let me know. Every time I think I''ve got it nailed down for sure, it keeps popping up. I haven''t been able to reproduce it myself, but it''s obviously happening. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

JonatanHedborg: I''ve never started a thread, so I didn''t know that ...

Myopic Rhino: I only counted the replies, when doing my above post...

Khawk: Well, I guess you''re right . Considering the number of postings from some people. Nonetheless, it would make a nice feature, especially if you can''t be online all the time and check (you should have an option whether to turn this on or not). Right now, I just do a search over the past 5 days to follow threads I participated in.

Ciao,

I generally look at all the posts marked with a red folder... if your post isn''t in them, noones answered since you were last here

Anyone notice theres a next topic and previous topic links at the bottom... I''ve never got around to using them

J2xC: Yes, the red folder thing is neat when you access the forum from a SINGLE computer. But, I tend to access the forum from various sources (also not just a single forum, but four). So, the red folders don''t help out too much.

Agreed, especially since the red folders disappear after the first time visiting the forum. That is if you don''t hit the "Back" button. I sometimes like it to reload and then it loses the other threads I haven''t read yet. Oh well. I think every forum code has it''s own quirks like this.
