Board Not Refreshing Correctly

I just posted a reply on the Manhattan board, but when I refreshed the page, the post I replied to did not move to the top. I scrolled down to its original location, and it's showing 0 replies. I clicked "Reply," and my post is there. Just to be sure, I refreshed several times. Still remains the same.

Obviously, this is a major problem that needs to be addressed asap.

  1. Am having the same problem with the Quebec board. Sometimes the topic listing will be correctly updated but then, after I refresh it, will revert to the older listing.

    Also just encountered a new glitch: according to the listing, someone had replied to a thread (New icon next to the thread name, reply counter increased by one, poster's name shown in the right-hand column) but the post didn't show up in the thread. The only way to read it was to go to the poster's profile and click the All Activity link. Now, 15 minutes after the comment was posted, it's displayed when you view the thread.

    Don't think this is browser related as I tried emptying my browser's cache before refreshing the page.

    1. Perhaps the Tech Team took the holiday weekend off?

      This problem persists! This morning, to get the Manhattan board to refresh correctly, I had to go off the board entirely, go to another board, and then return.

      1. This is has been happening since Thursday on All the boards I have visited and to all the posts I have made. Someone said yesterday that this is the poorest and glitchiest site in cyberland.... and yes, all the problems persist.

          Oh good, I thought it was just me - in My Chow I can see that there's a new post to a topic I've been reading, but when I go to the topic the new post isn't there and doesn't show up for some period of time (15 minutes sounds about right). I also found carswell's trick of being able to get to it by going to the new poster's profile and clicking through from there, but this is pretty tedious.

          At least I haven't been seeing so many "500 - Internal Server Issues" this week.

            After I posted the second time (the post above yours, BobB), no matter what I tried -- refreshing this board, going to a different board and coming back, going to my own "My Chow," etc. -- this thread would not move to the top of the board. I just came back to the site after taking a break for a few house and checking "My Chow," I noticed there was a new post -- yours, BobB. That's how I accessed this thread, so I don't know if the thread was at the top of the board. I'll be interested to see if there's still a problem after I hit "Post My Reply" and then refresh.

            Edited to add: The thread's position did not move, there was no indication of an additional post, yet when I clicked, my post shows up. Also, the edit function seems not to be working, so I have no idea if this will appear.

            Things are really messed up!! Where't the Tech Team?!

              They're in the office working on finding solutions to this stuff, but they haven't figured out what's causing the problems yet.

                Thanks for letting us know that they are addressing the problem.

                  Sorry I posted in the wrong place, on Site Talk. And thanks to Jacquilynne for pointing me to this thread. I'm so glad it's not just me. And yes, it's still happening.

            2. re: BobB

              same here. not only do my posts (and others') not show up right away, but many of the threads on which I've participated in the past no longer show up in my Chow at all. also, the majority of threads i click are uncollapsed.

          2. On a possibly related issue - the reply count is not accurate in some places. For example, on this topic, when I last checked there were 12 responses, but on both My Chow and on the page itself it says there are 8 replies.
