Lots of Topics Showing as Sticky

nsxtasy Mar 3, 2007 07:45 AM

With the addition of the "Etiquette" announcement as a sticky topic, I see that a bunch of ordinary everyday topics that were updated within the past couple hours are now appearing under the heading "STICKY TOPICS" in our local/regional forums. Only those designated as "sticky" should appear there, and I believe the "Etiquette" announcement is the only one so designated. The others should just appear under the date heading as usual.

Note: As the perfect example, this topic (the one you're looking at now) is now appearing under the STICKY TOPICS heading when viewing the Technical Help forum.

    Thanks, we've reported it to Engineering.

      I'm glad to see someone reported this. As of today, March 8, this is still occurring.

        Yup. FYI - They appear under STICKY TOPICS if they have been updated within the previous two hours. (Which, coincidentally, also happens to be the window during which you can edit your own post.)

          It's still happening. Perhaps engineering needs a reminder.

            This is happening again, lots of topics showing up as sticky, on a variety of boards.

              I worked on this with Engineering for a bit, and we pinned it down to something that affected Firefox users who weren't in the Pacific time zone. I don't think it ever got fixed, though.

              They just fall off the sticky list after a couple of hours, though, so it's not a huge problem. (Just an annoying one.)

                I'm in the Pacific time zone, though! And yeah, it's not a big problem, more confusing at first than anything else, but I wasn't sure if it was on the Engineering radar, since I haven't seen this problem crop up in a while.

                  Hrmm, then maybe it just got worse / changed.

                  Let's unpin it it down, then. It also affects MSIE 6 users (in the Eastern time zone).
