weird... new  

some crazy stuff has been happening with TW lately...for one, the posts I have already read stay new, and whenever i come back, it is like i had never read them in the first place. also, whenever it used to skip to the newest unread post in a thread, it either goes to the very beginning and doesn't show any of the posts as being new or it skips over all new posts and goes to the very end of the thread. is any of this stuff happening to anyone else? i can't be the only one....

you're so beautiful to look at when you cry

Yes.

If my answers frighten you, Vincent, you should cease asking scary questions.

Re: weird... [re: beatled]  

Is it possible that you have TW open in two different browser windows at the same time? That could cause the oranges and yellows start acting wonky.

It is possible, but they have allways worked fine with me even if I use two different windows.

Everything has a consequence new [re: beatled]  

As I did not write any of the scripts used to run this site, all of this is pure speculation, albeit from someone with a bit of background in dynamic web programming.

You may have also noticed that the board runs slowly at times, and that there has been a recent recurrence of Oops! messages, though not all the time, thank Jeebux. What this means is that the database is once again getting too big, ergo the server is once again getting overloaded, and we are soon due for another archiving.

This relates to the original question because programs often include mechanisms to discard inessential functions when having trouble executing essential functions. In this case, essential functions would include user login and basic display of messages, while alerting of new posts and jumping to the newest post in a thread (all custom features by Evan, mind you ) would be pleasant but inessential features rather than necessities, and would be the first to go when the wheels are having trouble executing their basic rotation.

One thing that may be contributing to this is things like wasting space.

I'll note that even if the database size is not the cause of the wonkiness of the "new messages" features, it still is, as always, a brilliant idea to try not to waste space on the board.

But have you noticed that the Oops! messages allways happend at the same time of the day (at least in the timeframe when I'm online, I don't know what happends here during the night (or what is night herearound)). Is the any explanation for that?

BTW, WildWind, allways your greatest fan.

Toto, too? new [re: beatled]  

Is this still happening for you, beatled? Just curious because it's now happening to me so I finally know exactly what you were talking about. I'm just wondering if it will go away eventually as it's pretty annoying.

TW is melting ....

Re: Toto, too? new [re: white rabbit]  

not so much anymore, but once in a while it does something funky. i'm still not really sure what was causing it, though, but WW had some good suggestions. i'm thinking it'll pass in about a week for you (well, that's how long it took mine to go away) till it does, it's just a big inconvenience, unfortunately

will i catch the moon like a bird in a cage
it's for you i swoon wilco
