No, not any member here or anything like that
No, this is seemingly going on with any vertical scope based forum I belong to. It's just a weird thing that began in the last week or so.
There are any number of times that I cruise through the forum without logging in. It might be that I'm at work or I'm just looking to see if anything new has been added to a particular thread or something.
Either way, when I do this, I generally just click on the active topics tab and see what's new. Only for days on end, nothing changes. It appears that no one has posted anything new for that entire time.
Then, I get home and log on, and suddenly there are a dozen new posts or even that many new threads. This has been happening with the other forums I'm on also, not just this one. It also does this on both my home computer as well as my work computer. I've tried just clearing the cache but that seems to not have any effect at all.
I don't know why it suddenly started doing this out of the blue. Never did this before. However, if it is going on for others, that could seriously impact site traffic as no one will bother to log on if it appears there are no new topics or posts to threads that were being casually followed.
As it seems to be affecting both this forum and Ducati dot MS, which are both vertical scope based, my thought is, it must be a vertical scope issue. Intentional (to get more people to log on) or unintentional (code issue or update glitch) it would seem to me that it would actually stop people from logging on as they see nothing new to comment on.....just my thoughts, it may actually be a non-issue for others...........sean
