New Anomaly

This thread has the same two messages (one from me). But it keeps showing up as new, with the second reply with a "new" flag next to it and it always says "7 minutes ago" for the time. But when I look at it that post is now 18 hours old. I've signed out twice and back in again, but the same thing keeps showing up. This is on a Mac running OS X 10.6.8 and Firefox 15. Anyone else experiencing this?

  1. After several hours without this happening, it suddenly happened again when I went back to my profile page. Again, post number two said it went up 7 minutes ago when looking at the thread from the outside, but when clicked open is shows the fully expanded post was put up (now) 22 hours ago. Very weird.

    1. There are several possible culprits here, but none are jumping out at the moment. How persistent were the NEW flags on your profile and the board? Did they remained unchanged even if you refreshed several times?

        They would persist, even after I had reopened the thread. I could go back and forth several times and the new flag stayed put. Then suddenly, POOF! and the thread was back to normal. Very strange behavior that I have never seen before.

          Very odd. And it was appearing that way on both your profile and on the board page? Or was it your profile page the whole time?

          Additionally, if you see it happen again, can you please try hard-refreshing the page where the NEW flag shows up? (ctrl + shift + R on PC, or cmd + shift + R on mac)
