Okay, I don't know if this is happening to anyone else, but it's been happening a lot to me. I click on a forum link from the main page, and view the new threads. I click on a thread, read it, then go back. The forum page has reverted to how it was hours or a day or so ago! It's rather annoying.

The exact same thing has been happening to me. It is rather irritating.
If seen that a couple of times. A similar problem I've seen more often is that I'll reply to a thread, click back to it, and it will look like it did the last time I viewed it (like, the previous day, or whenever).

We appreciate your concern. It is noted and stupid.

First things first.
Click the "my profile" link above... the top link on the right of the body on the page will be something like "Clear cookies"
You'll need to log in after that.
That SHOULD help the post indicator problem.
In the future, use the links on the page, not your back button... that will also avoid the problem.
As for the caching issue, make sure your browser is set to check the doucment on the server EVERY TIME, not automatically.
Yeah, but using links means you're essentially loading the page again, while using the back button means you go to a page you've already loaded and shouldn't need to load again. This is especially important if you don't have some whizz-bang cable modem setup but are actually required to dial-in to some crummy ISP that maybe'll give you 45333 on a 56K connection.
On the other hand, my browser was set to "automatic," and I'm trying out "every time you start IE" so I'll see how that goes.
Strangely enough, some Forums seem to be affected more than others. Naturally, a Forum with loads of newly-posted-to threads will display the problem, meaning I have to update before I read each one. A Forum with just one new thread will be fine. . . B(

45333 on a 56k connection? How often do you get that? I've had it a few times, but mostly I'm on 42666 or less Any methods to improve the speed of your modem - especially when downloading files. I've go "GoZilla" but so far it just really pisses me off.
Malnurtured Snay - If my memory is any good (not usually ), yes we have had this problem before . . . when? . . . ya got me!
-------------------- If you cant convince them, confuse them.
That's really poor. You should be getting at least 30,000 (I've never gone as high as Lee. I sometimes get 4.3 k/s on a download if I'm really lucky, but not often).
I'd check with your phone company, and make sure your line isn't being split between two people.
akb: You're not really going to get any faster. No 56k modem has ever gotten up to 50,000 (unless everyone in the US is horrible killed, or something).
-------------------- Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.
