Once I post in a thread ...

it disappears. i.e. I have to "advanced search" for posts by my user name to find it again to see what else has been said in a thread.

Is there some setting that I've got mucked up? I certainly don't want to subscribe to threads so that I get messages each time there is a response (neither by email nor by a pm); I just want to see the threads that I've replied to when I hit "New Posts" next time I pass through. And no, the threads do not appear in the "The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts" section. Which they shouldn't, but I've checked.

Any ideas / suggestions?

Zereh, how do you view threads/posts?

I use the New Posts option to view activity since my last visit. When I read or respond to a new post, it drops off the list until there is new activity. Then it reappears.

I always start out by hitting the "New Posts" option. I browse though those that seem interesting and respond once in awhile. I never start on a certain forum. The only time I even think about specific forums is if I'm starting a new post.

When I come back later I like to see who else has commented in the same threads that I did. Latest example is this thread. I made my response at 5:18 a.m. and left the board. I came back to the boards at around 12:30 p.m. There were two updates to the thread between my response time and the time I came back.

It is my understanding that when I click "New Threads" at 12:30 the thread with the updates should show up for me since "New Threads" isn't just about threads that have been started since my last visit, it is all threads that have had any activity since my last visit. But for whatever reason I don't ever get to see the ones that I post in again unless I physically go search for them using the Search / Advanced Search / User Name: [Zereh] search.

What makes it even stranger is that it does not happen if I start a thread. Once I start a thread, anyone who posts on it makes it reappear on my "New Posts" list. As it should. This thread was in my "New Posts" list tonight when I made my third visit to the boards today!

Oh, and this isn't new. It's been like this for ages ~ way before the new skin was released ~ so I'm pretty sure they're unrelated. I just never took the time to post about it before.

I wonder if I should try making a Zereh1 ID and see if it happens there as well. I don't see any option that I can change that would effect the way it works / doesn't work in my User settings but I'd be happy to help you test it out if you'd like.

Thanks for looking into this. =)

Zereh, I forwarded your problem to tech support.
