What happened to the "show only new posts" function?

Without this it is a huge pain to revisit threads one has already read. I can't imagine that management wouldn't realize this, so I doubt they have done away with it deliberately.

Is there a malfunction?

  1. Well, this function appears to be working for me again- perhaps it was a temporary lapse, or more likely a cookie glitch in my own computer. Either way, I apologize for wasting your time.

      I was about to ask the same question. This function seems to go off and on at will, which is particularly annoying on the longer threads. I don't know anything about cookie glitches, so maybe it is my computer. Is that something I can fix/control? Whatever, it's annoying.

        Now it seems to be back "on" again. Good grief!

          It had been "off" for several days....

    2. This is a bug we've done a fair amount of research on, but have had a very difficult time tracking down. The problem is inconsistent, as you've both noticed- it starts and stops seemingly on its own, only effects certain threads, and is otherwise without rhyme or reason (see for a larger discussion).

      If you've noticed any patterns in this bug that might help predict when it occurs, please let us know. Thank you both for your reports.
