I think I'd rather be left in the dark than lied to.

Yeah some times the count gets messed up - happens all the time on my board. To fix that do Quick Links > Mark Forums As Read. Or click this link: BTWIMHO Chat Forums - Powered by vBulletin (http://btwimho.com/forumdisplay.php?do=markread)

Or click this link: BTWIMHO Chat Forums - Powered by vBulletin (http://btwimho.com/forumdisplay.php?do=markread)That doesn't fix anything, Dan, and in fact just makes thing worse by messing up the New Posts page. What I meant by I'd rather be kept in the dark than lied to is I'd rather see the Unread Posts feature removed if possible. If I remember correctly that's what JS had done @ v7 and it worked out nicely as there was then no incorrect info displayed and members could just use the New Posts link to keep abreast. I just hope I'm remembering correctly, my memory is not like it was 5 minutes ago, it's failing fast. lol

I've been monitoring the counts all day and they look pretty accurate to me.
What's up?

Well, Dan said sometimes so I guess you just have to wait for it to act up, it's like it gets stuck when it should be refreshing I guess, I don't know.

He's right though because mine is ok now.

Basically what it does I guess is not register a deduction as the posts are viewed.

It's nothing I can't live with, I just felt like complaining, Zap. I scraped the bottom of the wine jug last night and managed to get out two cups of lees.. tasted terrible but did the trick. lol

I hardly ever start threads and I was thinking, I'm gonna start me a thread for a change dammit. lol

No problem, Dude.
And, for what it's worth, Dan figured out what is happening. It counts ALL new posts (including ones that members can't view) so, technically, you're not being lied to, just taunted.

:sqrofl:

Nice one, Dan! Thank you.

I was taunted once before...
I got all vengeful and crap... very rough time for all involved :sqerr:\

Threats, flames, broken things... then it got real nasty :D

Looks like you'd better get rid of that Unread Posts link, Zap, ASAP.

Don't fuck with Canucks. Maybe some day I'll tell you about the time a friend and I got the shit beat out of us by some guys in Hope.

Or did I already? lol!

I like the unread post link....I'm getting to like the Top Ten Stats link, and it doesn't lie. Nothing I hate worse than willful disinformation.

No, I don't think you mentioned that. :sqconfused:

Stupid me. I've now come to the conclusion that the Unread Posts count is actually the only accurate info. The Top 10 Stats and New Posts links combine posts in the same thread and primarily indicate thread activity, Unread Post/s indicates pure post activity.

I meant the more accurate info, not the only accurate info, sorry.

Well then.. shall we bring the berry baskets and make a day of it? Junior, go get the inner tube and tell mom to make up some sandwiches, I'll go get the picnic basket out of the attic.

Should I have used that last comma?
Good question Atom. Probably not.

I think I'm going to have to agree with DarleneO in a different thread, this is a pretty interesting forum.

I never had a chance to figure this Unread Post/s thing out at v7 because it was removed shortly after the switch to VB as I recall.

Atom
30-07-2010, 10:55 AM
I shouldn't really say v7 though, because v7 was actually called Internet Marketing Forum at the time of the switch.

It's now called the Iranian Cyber Army Forums (http://www.btwimho.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1388&d=1280499609) :sqlaugh:

I haven't been there except for just a few seconds by accident twice, in a long time. So.. I don't know if you actually might be serious or not. lol!

Wow, cool! Dan is the first guy I've seen to figure that one out.

Nice one, Dan! Thank you.

actually, I recall letting people know that from the beginning. If I had access to that private message board, I could prove it but I have also been lying on a weird angle and can barely feel my arms anymore. It's becoming painful to type but oddly enough, the position is still comfortable so I'm not tempting to move as of yet.

I'll let you know when I do.

I'll now have to read it again a bit later, I thought I finally had it figured out dammit. lol

wow, you found it! good research skills. Could you help me find my external hard drive and a suitcase as well please? I have been looking for these two things for a long time now!

Especially the suitcase, offered by my parents a few years back. I like it, it's pretty big and I have no idea how I cannot find it.

Appreciated.

Ok I just read through that and it appears that Zap had that figured all along.. the sneaky little devil, leading me on like this, he should know by now that my memory is shot to hell.

Actually, I don't know that he knew that I read that because I didn't post in it. I did read the thread though, but totally forgot that the mystery had been solved.

I came on drunker than hell one day and next thing I knew, there it was.
