Forum weirdness

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

I've seen this before but not recently. I agree that it would significantly affect traffic.

The above reply is a good example of what I'm talking about. I could see there was a reply to my post without logging in. When I clicked on the post to read the response, the response does not appear. I have to log in to read the response.



This is the kind of weirdness I'm talking about. It doesn't do this all the time, but randomly. It doesn't matter if I'm using a desk top at work, or any of the three available computers at the shop. I might not have logged in on one for several weeks and still, I'll get the EX500 active topics page that appears to not have changed since the day before. I get the same when I get online at home on my Surface. Until I log on. Then all the activity is visible. It's just weird. ....sean

The lack of updating when logging on has been happening on my Android phone for a while now. Once I click on one section it all updates. No issues on my home computer though. I'll let the admin team know about it.

Cool.....seems to happen all the time now. Never had issue with it before and if I did, just clicking on a section would update everything. This a different kind of weirdness. For instance, this post continually appears at the top like it is the last thing posted. So long as I'm not logged in anyway. It shows that there has been a response but when I click on it, all that appears is my original post. As soon as I log in, it updates and now I can see all the subsequent posts. It's not a huge deal....just kind of annoying in that little kid in the car "are we there yet" way. ..........sean

I'm not experiencing what you guys are, but I noticed that I can search fine on my work computer (Chrome - Windows 10) but when I go to search the forum with my home computer (Chrome - Windows 7 pro x64), every time i hit the search button, it just brings me to the forum home page and doesn't give any error or indication I had tried to search anything. It was like hitting refresh.
