"Now Back"
 
  
Hi Folks - the server we are on had a crash earlier this morning and so were not on-line for a while. All now seems restored!

   Sometimes I see a thread (on the index page) whose time signature indicates that there is a new post for me to read. However, when I go to the thread itself, the newest post is not there.

Like right now in the "Not Dance" Forum, the thread about BBC Proms indicates a new post for this morning, but when I look at the thread, the post is not there.

Is this a caching problem do you think? (I have done the "reload" thing.)

Or just a particular gremlin that sits on my shoulder?

Or am I just getting old?

   One of the most common reasons for "missing" posts is that people will not always make posts at the end of the thread, as they will be replying to an earlier post. So just check the date/time stamp of every post. I see in the Proms thread now that Alison's Post 7 is in the middle of the list. Perhaps this is why?

   Thank you very much, PhilipB, that is indeed what has happened.

Silly me! (I am getting old!)

   And sometimes the time stamp for a thread gets updated but there isn't a new posting there. There is clearly some gremlin in the works; it could be the same one that crashed the box this morning, although I think the outage was because the rubber band broke.

   Trog - LOL!

Yes, I have had that happen too, a new time stamp and no new post. I figure that's just Bruce fooling around.

The server we are on we share with a few hundred others and I think it just got a bit too busy earlier today and could not work itself out without a reboot. Normally its something else!

The timestamps thing can happen when postings are deleted. We very really do that for real though on occasion we add a blank message to a thread and then delete it - this sends that message to the top of the threads. So its not necessarily a gremlin at all.

In general if there were serious issues here we would get a stream of messages about posts going missing. Touch wood but we don't generally see that.

The preferred way to see new messages is not to bother with reading times and dates - desperately dull - but to use the 'read new messages' and 'mark all' facilities. At various times I've documented this in various ways but have learned not to bother anymore because it just got ignored! It's not that difficult but I have truly washed my hands of telling folks.

Excellent answer! The only thing I would add is that I don't look at times and dates but rather the number in brackets at the end of the post - the highest number is the latest post. It's often easier to use that number than look at times/dates.
